Subject: New Dates for 2021 Team Dart
If there’s one universal truth we have learned over the past several months is “planning is impossible.” What we know as fact today we learn is fiction tomorrow. It’s not a complaint; it’s the reality we are all living through these days.
We realize you have questions about the future of NDA programs and events and while we don’t have all the answers today, NDA continues to take steps to improve our prospects for success in the future.
I wanted to inform you that, earlier this week, the NDA Board of Directors approved the re-scheduling of next year’s Team Dart to June 10-16, 2021 at Westgate Las Vegas. (Originally, it was set for April 15-21, 2021 there).
While we regret any inconvenience this may create, the decision was balanced against the desire–and frankly need–to give everyone involved some additional time to recover, re-group and ramp up for this tremendous tournament. By delaying the start by eight weeks, it is our hope that we will be much further along in this process and more of you will be able to participate. One positive byproduct is we are finalizing a reduced room rate at Westgate. As well, we are planning for an epic Player’s Pool Party there!
I know much uncertainty remains these days and concerns about the future persist, but please know that just like you, NDA is doing the best we can to navigate through these difficult days. More than ever, we appreciate your continued support and participation. Even though there are days when it seems like the sky is falling, it’s good (and important) to remember that the enthusiasm for darts is not falling…at all. In fact, it is intensifying and once we get past this not-so-little-hiccup, NDA sees some terrific times ahead for our sport and organization. Like all of you, I can’t wait for that day to come.
