On Wednesday November 26th, 2014 another installment of Cass County's longest running annual dart tournament will be going down. In what has become many dart players favorite event, the Brodersen's Night Before Thanksgiving Luck of the Draw Dart Tournament has been a steady attraction for dart enthusiasts and their friends and family.
The event is open to the public, anyone and everyone is encouraged to participate regardless of experience, skill level, league affiliation, etc. The tournament was started in 2000 by Dan Brodersen Sr. and his family as a way to get more people involved in the sport. He also used this annual event to have a get-together with friends and family that he didn't usually get to share his love of the game with. Over the years, one group of players have been more successful at this tournament than any other. A group of Brodersen's co-workers that came down from Omaha to have a fun night out with new people. For the first 7-8 years of the event, the members of that group always seemed to find a way to finish in the Top 3...especially Ike Kyles, who has won the event on multiple occasions.
This event has lasted through good and bad times and has always seen a good turnout of players looking to have a good time before the long holiday weekend. With massive league growth occurring around the area, we hope that this year is no different.
Other than having a great time with great people, this event has evolved into a high stakes event for those participating in Greater Omaha Leagues' Ultimate Qualifier Series. The event is worth Triple qualifier points and will have a drastic effect on the final Top 40, which decides who gets the opportunity to play for over $2,000.00 in prize money in mid-December. On top of that, not only is this the final point-earning event for the 2014 series, it is also the first point-earning event of the 2015 Ultimate Qualifier Series...so it has double the value to participating players. Players who participate in this event not only have the opportunity to finish 2014 strong, but get an early jump on the competition in 2015.
As always the event will be held at the Plattsmouth VFW in downtown Plattsmouth, Nebraska. Please remember to invite all of your friends and family who may enjoy playing darts, as this is an event enjoyed by all.
