Summer Series – The CDC Midwest Melee

Short Legs / Long Format!

CDC hearkens back to the days of the North American Open as we roll out a 301 DI/DO event for the 2023 Summer Series! Held onsite at the Cleveland Extravaganza, the Midwest Melee is an event you don’t want to miss! Open registration on a first-come/first-served basis to a maximum of 64 players.


  • Straight knockout bracket
  • 301 DI/DO
  • Best-of-11 legs

Registration fee: $50.00 USD (plus registration platform fee) in advance / $60.00 USD onsite for any remaining spots. The only way to guarantee yourself a spot is to register in advance as this event is likely to sell out!

Top finishers will accrue points on the 2023 Summer Series Order of Merit with a 2024 CDC Tour Card and full entry fee sponsorship going to the player at the top of the OoM at the conclusion of the Summer Series!

CDC Bull-shot rule is in effect – the player on the top of the bracket MUST throw for the bull first. No measurement – two darts outside the 25 or 50 result in a re-throw in reverse order, as do ties in the 25/50. Winner of the bull starts the odd-numbered legs. Loser of the bull starts the even-numbered legs.

CDC Dress Code is in effect: Business casual clothes (khakis or dress pants with a collared shirt.) No denim or shorts. Dress shoes or all-black sneakers are acceptable.

There will be NO drinking of alcohol allowed during matches. Players will be allowed to drink only the water provided by the tournament staff while engaged in a match. Alcohol consumption is allowed between matches.

This is a loser-marks event. The first match on each board will be marked/scored by the last player drawn onto that board. Each subsequent match will be marked/scored by the loser of the previous match.

1st: $800
2nd: $400
Top 4: $200
Top 8: $100

Please direct any questions to the tournament staff onsite or to in advance.

Good luck!
