Mark your calendars! The 2012 ADA National Championship is returning to Las Vegas Palace Station Hotel and Casino July 11 – 15th.
The dates aren’t the only thing that we have changed to this annual event. ADA members from Spain are attending and participating in the first Team Spain vs. Team ADA event. This will be held Saturday July 14th in the ADA Championship hall of the Palace Station ballroom. Twelve members from Spain will be competing on a team against twelve ADA Professional darters. Information on the qualifier event will be posted to the ADA website soon!
Don’t worry if you aren’t one of the twelve members on Team ADA you will still have the opportunity to be paired up with or compete against the ADA members from Spain in other National Championship events! Walk-ins and members who attend the Nationals but who did not compete on a team are eligible to play in the Open Draw Doubles events!
Everyone attending the 2012 National Championship make sure you reserve your room at Palace Station in the ADA room block! Call 1-800-634-3101 or click https://rooms.stationcasinos.com/cgi-bin/LANSAWEB?procfun+rn+Resnet+PAL+funcparms+UP(A2560):;PCIDRT;?/ and use code PCIDRT. You have until Tuesday June 19th to reserve your room and meet the National Championship eligibility requirements and the great low ADA room rate.
For those of you that attended last year’s National Championship you are familiar with the Palace Station Shuttle Service that they provide for guest. This shuttle is FREE and offers service to and from McCarran International Airport and to the Las Vegas Strip. You can view the shuttle schedule at http://www.palacestation.com/hotel/amenities/ for exact times and locations.
Not that you really need to use the shuttle once you get to Palace Station. For those of you who will be new to this location you will be surprised at all this venue has to offer! If you are into gambling; they offer the most Baccarat and Pai Gow tile games off the strip, around-the-clock poker action, bingo, keno and my personal favorite penny slots! Not a gambler? No problem. Palace Station offers multiple pools and jacuzzis, workout room, arcade and a comedy club. Live music, drink specials and a dart board can be found at Jack’s bar and lounge all this located inside Palace Station.
Want to try a new restaurant every day during you stay?! Palace Station offers many eateries - all indoors. Here are just a few that you can look forward to checking out; 24-hour Grand Café, Feast buffet, The Broiler steakhouse, raw Oyster Bar, Cantonese cuisine, Italian restaurant, Cabo Mexican restaurant (which offers happy hour drink specials), Subway sandwiches and even a Starbucks! Since outside food and drink aren’t allowed in the championship hall, kiosk carts will be available for participators and spectators to conveniently enjoy.
The ADA received a thank you for being the “Most Valuable Partner” award from Palace Station in 2011. They are just as thrilled as we are to have the ADA and all of its members return for another year. Make 2012 just as successful as 2011 and join us at Palace Station Hotel & Casino July 11 – 15th.
