Torremolinos Open
From GDA's Facebook page

ATTN GDA Members: Re: BDO TORREMOLINOS “OPEN” 2020 at Sol Principe.
The GDA has contacted the Hotel & the BDO and wishes to make you aware of the following. The tournament although billed as an “Open” is actually not. Participation in the tournament will only be permitted to Gibraltarians who book a minimum 3 night stay, which MUST be booked via the BDO.
The price for this is £70 per person per night on a half board basis. You will then be required to pay €30 per day to enter the Darts venue (which includes all drinks) in addition to paying the entry fee to the tournaments. One assumes this is also available to other nationalities resident in Gibraltar but the poster only mentions “Gibralterians<sic>”
Spanish local residents & expats resident in Benalmadena, Malaga, Fuengirola only will be able to access the venue upon payment of the €30 fee.
For almost 2 decades GDA members have been able to participate in this event upon payment of the relevant tournament entry fees whether staying in the hotel or not. This is no longer being permitted.
As regards any of you who have already booked the Hotel yourselves as usual, the BDO suggest you contact the hotel and explain the situation and ask for your money back so that you can book again through the BDO.
Further queries should be addressed to BDO Chairman Des Jacklin:

Wonder why this is the only thing promoted on the BDO Facebook page Thinker

LOL, looks like a sleazy attempt by Des to earn a few pennies through exclusive hotel bookings.
Are these the last death twitches?
