The National Domino League, LLC
This is an Ego Ring Game Doubles Professional Domino Tournament League which will require a $500.00 entry fee per person. There will be four such tournaments played on Friday evening to coincide with the current National Domino League schedule in Domino and Texarkana, Texas (http://www.travisnewsome.com/#!ndl-tournaments-page/c1zd5). The first tournament will be August 22, 2014 in Texarkana, Texas at the Wyndham Garden Hotel at 5:00 PM. A 5th tournament will be played on September 13, 2015 to determine league champion.
We are only interested in a certain caliber of domino player to create this special professional domino league, therefore; participation will require a membership application. Membership the first year will be limited to 16 players and approved on a first come first serve basis. Once an application (SEE BELOW) has been approved, the player will have 3 days to submit the tournament entry fee of $500.00 (fee can be submitted with the application) or the application will be moved to the back of the list.
If you have won the World Championship tournament (singles or doubles) in Alabama or Oklahoma, your application will automatically be approved.
How the league will work.
Each tournament will consist of 12 ring games to 250 points. The top 8 records (one-half of the participants) will participate in the championship bracket (click here to see the bracket) to determine the tournament winners.

IN ADDITION TO THE $500.00 ENTRY FEE WHICH WILL BE REQUIRED IN ADVANCE, PLAYERS WILL HAVE TO PAY $15.00 PER GAME FOR EVERY GAME THEY DO NOT WIN. IF YOU LOSE 4 GAMES, YOU PLAY AN ADDITIONAL $60.00. THIS IS AN EGO TOURNAMENT WHICH MEANS YOU THINK YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH TO WIN ALL OF YOUR GAMES. IF THAT IS NOT YOUR MINDSET, THIS LEAGUE IS NOT FOR YOU. IF YOU ARE STRUGGLING TO PAY YOUR MORTGAGE, CAR PAYMENT, UTILITIES OR CHILD SUPPORT, THIS LEAGUE IS NOT FOR YOU. ALL OF THE GAMES ARE ON SUNDAY, MOST OF YOU CAN NOT USE WORK AS AN EXCUSE. WE WILL TRY TO DEVELOP THIS LEAGUE TO ATTRACT NATIONAL ATTENTION INCLUDING ESPN.
