New Zone Director in Zone 5 - Whitecourt

Although Darts Alberta has had members in Zone 5 for many years, we are excited to announce that Zones will be held in Whitecourt to qualify to participate in the Adult Provincial Championships. Up until now, this zone has always been listed as inactive. Thanks to interest in the Alberta Masters Games, a qualifier was held in Whitecourt and several participants from the area participated in the Games in Rocky Mountain House. This sparked interest in participating in other programs that Darts Alberta offers. 

A special thank you goes out to Jamie Trenholm who has stepped up and volunteered to be the Zone 5 Director. 

More details will be provided on upcoming Zone dates for this zone as well as all other zones throughout Alberta. 

Thank You Volunteers!

Darts Alberta would like to thank all of the volunteers for coming out over the past two days to work shifts at the Starlight Casino in West Edmonton Mall. Proceeds from our bi-annual casino is a major source of funding for everything relating to our Youth Program and to fund travel to the Youth and Adult Nationals. Without these volunteers, this funding would not be possible and players would be faced with funding a major portion of their own travel to Nationals, similar to what some other provinces are faced with. 

We can't thank you enough!

Casino Volunteers and Back-up Volunteers Needed

Our bi-annual Casino is our primary source of funding Team Alberta to participate at the Adult Nationals as well all of our Youth Programs including the Nationals. 

We have two specific spots to fill. Both are Evening Cashiers from 6:30 p.m. to 3:15 a.m. on Sunday, August 18, 2019 at the Starlight Edmonton Casino in West Edmonton Mall. Please contact Cindy Der (1stvicepresident@dartsalberta.com) if you are available and willing to fill this position. Darts Alberta will provide shared accommodations and gas mileage for any volunteers residing more than 100 km from the casino. All volunteers receive a meal allowance while working the casino.

We would also appreciate a few volunteers to serve in a back-up capacity in case any of our currently committed volunteers have to cancel due to extenuating circumstances. This could end up being any shift on either the Saturday or the Sunday, daytime, evening or late night. As this could be very last minute, those in or around the Edmonton area would likely be more suitable. If interested in being placed on our back-up list, please email Cindy Der (1stvicepresident@dartsalberta.com) with all available times on either August 17 or August 18.

New Board Members Welcomed

Darts Alberta welcomes Fred Seaward our new President and Natalie Kalika our new Treasurer to the Darts Alberta Board of Directors, effective July 1, 2019. Brenda Dietrich will continue to serve on the Board as our Past President.

Thank you for the hard work you all have put into our organization as volunteers.

Membership Director Vacancy

Due to personal extenuating circumstances, Wanda Earle has resigned her position as the Darts Alberta Membership Director. Although all positions on the Board are time consuming, it is important to note that this position is an extremely busy one as our Membership Director is required to maintain a database of all NDFC Members and submit this database regularly to the National Membership Director within strict deadlines, coordinate payment between Darts Alberta and the NDFC, as well as correspond with our member leagues in order to maintain an accurate database of over 1,300 Darts Alberta league members.
