MVDO Changes coming!

(3/18/2018)

The MVDO is changing the Tuesday and Thursday doubles playoffs. We will now follow the same format as Monday and Wednesday. In the first week of the playoffs the first place team will host the furth place team at their bar. The second place team will host the third place team at their bar. In week two the highest seeded team that won in week one will host the other winner in week two of the playoffs. The Tuesday Open Doubles Championship will be held on the Friday night of Championship week. Thursday Mixed and Cricket Championships will be held on the Sunday after 4-person B/C City Championship Saturday. This change will be implemented this season.

The MVDO is also changing the classification of a 'C' player. Any player rated 120 and below will be considered a 'C' player. We have done this at the MVDO Open for a number of years and will now implement it in league play. What this means is any division that ends up as a 120 or below rated division will be playing the 'C' format and will be eligible for the 'C' City Championship. This will also mean an adjustment to MVP qualification, any 'B' player that is within 20 points of a 'C' division rating will be eligible to win the divisions MVP.

Both these changes will be added/adjusted in the league rules.


What do you do if you have an issue/complaint in the league?

(9/3/2015)

If in the course of league play you encounter a situation or issue that requires assistance, here is a simple guide to follow:

Rules/Regulations issue - First, check the MVDO rules on the MVDO website - League Rules. If it is not in the league rules go to the ADO Tournament Rules on the ADO website - ADO website. If you still can't find it, ask your division rep first, reps are listed on the MVDO website - Executive Board. If you can't get your division rep, then try another Board member. If you have a complaint about a rule or regulation, it should be brought up at the preseason captains meeting and if a change is necessary, a vote of the membership will be held at the yearly election/MVDO Open in January.

Conduct/Discipline issue - First, contact your division rep, reps are listed on the MVDO website - Executive Board. If you can't get your division rep, then try another Board member.

Protests - Protests must be filed in writing to an MVDO Board member (an email will suffice). Preferably the league Vice President as they are in charge of protests. Email addresses found here - Executive Board. A $10 fee must be sent in with a protest. It will be refunded if protest is uphelp. The protest process is defined in the league rules - League Rules.

Website/Score/Reschedule issues - Contact league web masters and statisticians Dave Madison or Chuck Solinski. Or call 636-447-4003 the league answering machine.
