BDO American Region Player Eligibility Update

Below is an email the ADO received shortly after the conclusion of the BDO board meeting on April 16, 2014:
 
At the board meeting today the American situation was discussed at length. The conclusion of the board was that American players should be allowed to play within our system from the date that Q School finished which was Monday 20th January 2014 so any points earned from this date forward would be able to count in your regional table. This would mean that the American players have been treated exactly the same as any other player in Europe. It would also allow your players to take part in the Winmau World Masters if they qualify.
 
So any points earned from the Fleetwood Memorial Las Vegas Open onwards will be now be included in the USA regional table.
