SSDA Year 2020 Announcement
12th June 2020
At least 16 teams (4 clubs) are not available with that number rising to probably 19 plus teams withdrawn.
The season is not be feasible as it stands. Normally we would finish 15th September and clubs then plan their in-house comps through Summer to wait for Winter 2021. Most would start Summer darts October/November to conclude in February. This allows clubs who are able, to plan longer in-house competitions
These are unprecedented times and we (Committee) agree we should sway on being overly cautious and keep our members and club’s health as being paramount at this time.
So, we will forgo this season 2020 with a view to a fresh new 2021 season.
All clubs have been advised by Email.
Stay safe and well
Mark Dorotich and SSDA Committee
Hello Members of South Suburban Darts Inc
This is an update to which we previously advised members on Tuesday 17th March 2020.
A great deal has changed since we suspended our season subject to a review on Tuesday the 14th April 2020.
Darts Western Australia has suspended all State-run events including Metropolitan and State Championships because of the daily events and impact of the Corona Virus in Western Australia and indeed all of Australia.
Numerous other associations have followed our decision to suspend their seasons because of the Corona Virus and associated health risks to their members.
The Prime Minister Scott Morrison has made a Media Statement Sunday 22nd March 2020, he has implemented Stage One restrictions for all Australians commencing Midday, Monday 23rd March 2020. These restrictions are to be observed for a period of at least 6 months.
This time line takes us through to 21st September 2020, our SSDA season was scheduled to conclude on Tuesday 15th September 2020.
Given that we are obliged to observe all direction from Federal and State Governments and Health Professionals, I declare the South Suburban Darts Association Inc season 2020 is Permanently Suspended for this Year 2020.
The Committee and myself are committed to ensure the members health and well being is paramount in this difficult time. If circumstances allow we may later in the year have a short version Summer Competition, subject to the status of the Corona Virus in our community.
We, the Committee of South Suburban Darts wish all the members of our darting community including their families, good health and well-being during this period.
The Prime Ministers statement is below.
Be safe everyone
