Re: 6th BDO World Darts Trophy 30 Aug - 1 Sep Blackburn

It's feckin nearer Preston than Blackburn. Accomodation Premier Inn Blackburn 7 min walk from venue Premier Inn Darwen. 40 minute walk with a few pubs on the way, also loads of buses and a taxi should only be 3.00 Fernhurst, Ewood. 25 min walk. Still nothing in the local paper or on Radio Lancashir...

Re: 6th BDO World Darts Trophy 30 Aug - 1 Sep Blackburn

Tickets pages are up: KGH : https://www.kinggeorgeshall.com/whats-on/bdo-world-darts/ TM : https://www.ticketmaster.co.uk/search?q=bdo+world+darts Hmm. Seperate pages for the all day sessions and the single sessions. This could get confusing for the count. It's saying all tickets sold out on ticket...

Re: 6th BDO World Darts Trophy 30 Aug - 1 Sep Blackburn

I love the fact that some folk boast that the bdo threads are busier than pdc threads. I am sure the pdc will take bigger ticket sales over forum posts any day. they will always be busier, got to love car crash telly. These will be halcyon days when we look back in 10 years time. Long live the BDO.

Re: 6th BDO World Darts Trophy 30 Aug - 1 Sep Blackburn

Missed all the fun yesterday. Des seems liable to make' mistakes' when announcing info. Paula must have sorted him out on the sunbed yesterday. Good news that ticket counting is back on !! I have a mind to email back the woman who told me they would not be sold via the ticket office , but I guess th...

Re: Des Jacklins letter to the counties

Yes, well done to Des for keeping a loss making event going without a sponsor because he is being strangled by a TV contract he claimed he negotiated himself, he is a business genius. exactly, and, if he knew he was going to have to hold the event, why wait until this week to book a venue!!!

I guess the stunned silence means there are no errors on that page? Although I can see one obvious one. Come on then, put us out of our misery - what is it?

Re: 6th BDO World Darts Trophy 30 Aug - 1 Sep Blackburn

Don't really need to have the tickets on sale, it's just a case of saying where and when it is with a "contact the bdo for ticket details" I think you do. With any marketing/advertising you need an immediate and easy call to action otherwise you lose the impact of someone seeing it for the first ti...

Still nothing in the Local Paper and nowt on Radio Lancashire, which is madness after happily announcing it.
It's not hard to get our attention, our breakfast shows star prize is a bag!

Re: 6th BDO World Darts Trophy 30 Aug - 1 Sep Blackburn

The company who did the Worlds were OK actually.. The coverage was decent..this whole event is going to cost a fortune though.. Venue hire.. Prize money.. Running costs.. No proper sponsor... Like Des said it shouldn't be happening this year..but I cannot understand him saying if it was down to him...

Re: 6th BDO World Darts Trophy 30 Aug - 1 Sep Blackburn

Did we ever find out whether Eurosport are doing production as well? Or is that another nice big fat cost that the BDO have to stump up. They used a new company for the Worlds and Des was very complimentary of them. I assume they'll be the company used again (the name escapes me at the moment). che...

Re: 6th BDO World Darts Trophy 30 Aug - 1 Sep Blackburn

He doesnt want the event to run, I highly doubt he would increase it. If anything it may get more shaved off. I agree. Will be a bit lower. I think he will do all he can to make it as cheap as possible but still look ok on TV. No expensive MC (!), reuse stage/set; Low Prize money etc Not easy but g...

Re: 6th BDO World Darts Trophy 30 Aug - 1 Sep Blackburn

Taking it in house makes it easier to give tickets away. They really are giving up making any money from this. Just going to bus people in from Lincs for free by the looks of it! I'm wondering if they are even going to bother trying to sell any tickets properly. Although getting people to actually ...
