To all Darts BC Members:

Well another Dart Season is underway, and the Executive would like to thank each one of you for your support over the 2017/2018 season.

The overall focus of last year was:

Increase our membership

Our membership increased 89% last year and a huge thank you to all the leagues and individuals who helped make this possible.

Unfortunately, due to her work schedule, Donna Bisaro was unable to continue as Membership Director. We would like to thank Donna for all her hard work over the past few years and wish her the best of luck in her future endeavors.

The Executive is very happy to announce that Bert Davis has stepped in as interim Membership Director. Bert will also focus on trying to get Darts recognized as a Sport in British Columbia.

Focus on the Youth Program

The Youth Program has been growing and there were 16 Youths that participated in the 2018 Provincials. Tracy MacDonald (Darts BC Youth Director) is happy to announce that Darts BC will now start a Youth Ranking and the Top Male and Female Youth will be eligible to have their way paid into the Provincial Championships. This will take effect for the 2020 Provincials. More information to follow. Encourage our Youth!!!

To all those people that donated funds to help the youth, a huge thank you.

Fundraising Events

Fundraising events were held throughout the year to raise funds to help our players cover some of the expenses of going to 2018 Nationals in Drummondville, Quebec. We are happy to report that Darts BC was able to cover most of the expenses. This was something that has not been accomplished in many years. So, your membership fees and support are what help drive our sport.

   Emphasis for the coming year:

·         Keep the increase of membership on the upswing

·         Continue fundraising throughout the year, for the 2019 Nationals in Saskatoon

·         More growth in the Youth Program

·         Getting Darts recognized as a Sport in BC

·         Putting the Electronic Voting in place (under review)

·         Capability of attending the AGM remotely (under review)

·         Platform for Streaming finals live (under review)

We would also like to remind you that the following Positions are up for Election this year:

v  Provincial Director

v  Secretary

v  Membership Director (Interim in place)

v  Financial Director

v  Webmaster

If you or anyone you know are interested in joining the Darts BC Executive, stay tuned, information will be out shortly.

Thank you again and looking forward to another great season.
