- Updating machines/data transfer: Transferring data between dart machines and the IOWA DARTS office requires tripling the 20 segment six (5) to seven (7) times while the machine is in non-remote league setup screen. The machine will indicate “data transfer” after tripling the 20s as described. Transferring data takes a few moments to update the servers for the next match to be posted to the live tournament.
- When to cork: The first game of each match is the cork/diddle. It is one game of count up oi/do split bull. Each player on each team throws once. The team with the highest score wins the cork. Corking is done before each match and before any tiebreaker game to determine which team then throws first.

Bounty Challenge Rules
New starting July 1st!
All Open Doubles events… Monday Open Doubles, Thursday Open Doubles and Friday Open Doubles will all start with $100 (one time) in the bounty. All players who enter the bounty will agree to let 20% of the bounty they paid less admin fees ($2) to be kept and carried over to the next tournament. So each doubles bounty of $20 we will withhold $4 to be added to next bounty.
The BOUNTY CHALLENGE (optional) – For all regular singles and doubles events we will have the BOUNTY CHALLENGE. You must enter the bounty at the time of your signup. There are no refunds for the bounty. All teams will be placed in a random drawing to determine the Bounty for that nights event. The player/team chosen for the bounty will be posted at the end of the tournament via email. The drawing will be recorded and be triple time stamped for verification. The video will be available for viewing by request for 24hrs. If you knock the bounty person/team selected out of the winners side you/your team will receive half of THE BOUNTY’S pot for that tournament (if you selected to join the BOUNTY CHALLENGE). If you knock the bounty person/team selected out of the losers side you/your team will receive the other half of THE BOUNTY’S pot for that tournament (if you selected to join the BOUNTY CHALLENGE). This pot will be 100% of the money collected from teams that get in the BOUNTY CHALLENGE for that night (minus admin fee of $2.00 per screen entry). If you or your team is selected as the bounty and you win the tournament you will receive THE BOUNTY’s pot for that event (if you selected to join the Bounty Challenge). When the bounty reaches $400 or more, it will be split into two equal bounties. These bounties will be drawn from the total number of teams. A team can be drawn twice. A team can win both bounties if they knock out both teams. If drawn as the bounty, (if entered in the bounty) that team can win the other bounty by knocking the other team out of the tournament and can win their bounty if they win the tournament as well. $12 Singles $22 Doubles
