We extend the algorithm for matching fixed-order tree-level matrix element generators with the Dipole Cascade Model in ARIADNE to apply to processes with incoming hadrons. We test the algoritm on for the process W+n jets at the Tevatron, and find that the results are fairly insensitive to the cutoff used to regularize the soft and collinear divergencies in the tree-level matrix elements. We also investigate a few observables to check the sensitivity to the matrix element correction.
