Re: Ashdown and gone

On one hand, it does say something when one of your most recognisable people is an MC/ref rather than a player, and on the other, it says something when that person walks away. Cracking point re him being one of the most recognisable faces. All the other talk is about the young kids coming through ...

Re: Ashdown and gone

Richard what a massive loss you will be to the BDO and like many will agree it’s a very sad day indeed. But also not a big surprise that you have left to be honest. I’m surprised you stuck it out with all the political shenanigans that have gone on over the years when Sue & Wayne was on the board fo...

My enjoyment of darts whether PDC or BDO will not be affected one bit by this announcement.
I think most would agree.

but it's the timing that is interesting. Is it connected with des taking over? Or does he see the demise of the BDO and so wants out to look after his own career?

Re: Ashdown and gone

I hope the passion I have for the BDO and our sport came across to both players and fans alike. I can be honest in saying that I have given this role my all, both on and off the stage and it’s something that I am very proud of. However, as the BDO moves into a transitional period, I feel those effor...

Re: Ashdown and gone

After much deliberation, it is with heavy heart that I formally announce my resignation as Master of Ceremonies and Head Referee of the British Darts Organisation. I would like to thank the board members of the BDO both past and present for opportunities given to me to work upon their tournament sta...

Re: PDC World Matchplay 20th - 28th July 2019- Blackpool

At the box office the lady said the computer says no!

Seriously no standing tickets on sale. Won't be able to go to box office until Sunday now. Pity. I could have shown her that post from the pdc.

Paul believes it's that crucial? Surely if this event fails it's not end game?

Re: PDC World Matchplay 20th - 28th July 2019- Blackpool

Well that pdc bubble is sure going strong. Just been to the ticket office. All sessions (except Tuesday night) are sold out. Not even standing tickets for Sunday afternoon. Obviously I have left it too late but Sunday afternoon has never, been sold out (I think). Always been able to buy tickets a f...

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. Without the BDO places like this wouldn't exist. So we are all waiting for you to give thanks to the British Darts Organisation. Fair poin...

Re: PDC World Matchplay 20th - 28th July 2019- Blackpool

Also some folk have table seats but choose to stand.at the back or sit down the sides (plenty of seats there, with no tables of course ).

I did that one year. The freedom to move around is good. Always get 'standing' tickets now (except for this year! )

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

Slf Will be downstairs I reckon (they were last time).

In that room it is standing or if seating (as when I watched toyah ) I think that just gave you a set seat number but no plan.

I reckon seating plan.only for upstairs.

of course this should be table seating so who knows?

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

To be honest don't want to spend £30 on 2 tickets to find out loads of freebies given out. surely they won't offer free tickets for this? It happened at lakeside but only for a few sessions. Freebies will be given out for every session, why pay? Good. How do I get what free tickets? Anyone?

It should be Tommy Thompson's remit to help.
Why should he?

TT has made it clear in the past that this event should have been cancelled. Years ago. His main point, I believe, was that the company shouldn't be blowing all this money to please a few players. It's a fair point.

In Blackpool.
Seeing all the TV trucks down the side sure pits you in the mood for going.
Get tickets later for Sunday afternoon! Not a bad line up this year.
