The MVDO Board met this week to discuss the upcoming Spring 2021 Dart Season. It was decided best to postpone the start of the 2021 season until February. We are hoping by then that a vaccine will have been released to a large number of people and restrictions on bars will be gone and people will feel safe again to return to somewhat normal activities including playing darts. While some of you have been fine continuing to play we want to make sure those that are not ready to come back yet will get a chance to and not miss out on another season. So come February we will host a full 15 week Spring season. There will not be a Summer season and then in July we will start the 15 week Fall Season. Keep an eye out here on the web site and on the league Facebook page cause for those that do want to play and bars that are able to host players we will have some MVDO Blind draws. Thank you and stay safe.
The MVDO Midwest Winter Classic tournament (which will replace the MVDO Open which is held each year in January) is tentatively scheduled for late March at Hotshots-Fenton. The Winter Classic will have traditional events like the Summer Classic open to all players from here in St. Louis area and all over the country but it will also include events that will be for MVDO members only that are traditionally held at the MVDO Open. We will crown our MVDO A, B and C singles champions at the Winter Classic. And there will be B and C only doubles events open to all players, not just MVDO members. More details will follow as we get closer to the Winter Classic. But for now, just know that going forward the MVDO will host two major tournaments a year - The Summer Classic and the Winter Classic.
Congratulations to all the winners
