2017 GVDA Calendar now available

Winter 2017 Sign up and Annual General Meeting of the GVDA is on January 3rd 2017 at Sunset Lanes. We will hold the traditional $5 members' blind draw tournament opening at 7:00pm for tournament sign up with announcements starting at 7:30pm prior to the tournament start.

Individual membership dues for the year will once again be just $30. Tavern fees (per team per season) will also remain at $60 for Winter & Fall seasons and $20 for the shorter Summer season.

In an effort to reduce darts burn-out we are sticking to the 14 weeks to cover regular season plus playoffs that we are operating for the current season. In future years this should mean more time between seasons during which we may hold additional tournaments or events.

We are not all DeBruynes or Dwyers and are happy to announce that there will be no GVDA play scheduled for Valentine's night 2017, or for July 4th and Halloween which also fall on Tuesdays next year. We still feel there is a comfortable feel to the schedule in spite of this.
