Darts: BDO Revise 2009-2010 Inter-County Calendar
BDO Media Release: The ever-increasing BDO and WDF darts calendars, in particular the addition of newly ranked events including the International Tour of the Lowlands, together with the recently announced September dates for the 2009 BDO Winmau World Masters, has necessitated a revision of dates for the 2009/2010 BDO Inter-County season.
The revisions are already included in the ‘Diary Dates’ section of the BDO website: www.bdodarts.com which clearly illustrates how they have had to be fitted into an ever complex BDO calendar.
"Such is the BDO’s busy schedule of events, that it has not been possible to include any county fixtures in August/September this year", says Dave Alderman, BICC Director, "so the decision has been made to start the season in October, 2009 and conclude in May, 2010.
"It’s what you might describe as an opportunity rather than a problem, because the BDO and WDF playing calendars have grown at such a pace that we now have an all year round system to offer to our players. Encouragingly, this pattern of ever-increasing tournaments looks set to make things even busier for our playing members in the future".
The amended BICC calendar for 2009/2010 is as follows:
OCTOBER 3RD & 4TH
OCTOBER 31ST & NOVEMBER 1ST
DECEMBER 5TH & 6TH
JANUARY 16TH & 17TH
FEBRUARY 13TH & 14TH
MARCH 6TH & 7TH
MARCH 27TH & 28TH
APRIL 24TH & 25TH
MAY 8TH & 9TH
