Only 21/10 with Coral now. Think I'll give it a miss.

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...

I think Tommy might have his hands full sorting out all the refunds from his Isle Of Man debacle.

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 t...

Re: Isle of Man date error

What, they are going to pay for everyones flights to be rebooked? Yep. Where is the next World Cup they wont be able to afford to send a team to as a result? Nah, it'll be fine. Don't forget they've got a brilliant deal on cheap hotel rooms and a load of high end sponsors queuing up to pay for all ...

Re: Isle of Man date error

Tommy would like to apologise unreservedly for any distress caused.
Just to put your mind at rest, Tommy, I'm not distressed by this.
On the contrary, I think it's hilarious.

Re: Social Media Watch

It's just as well they didn't bother with Japan. On this evidence they'd probably have arrived about 6 weeks before the world cup started.

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!!! Its cr...

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

This has to be an attempt to build some sort of database of punters willing to pay to watch BDO darts for future marketing efforts. Obviously there are much better, more efficient ways of doing that than just taking your entire ticketing operation in-house, but it's the only semi-logical explanation...

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

Presumably if you use the venue box office they want a cut, either via an "administration fee" added on to each ticket, or a fee from the promoter.
As Skewy says, a desperate money saving exercise.

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

Obviously the players will carry on wearing their Winmau patches, but would Little Richard be treated differently in that as MC he would be employed by the BDO for the event? If so, they can probably put a restriction on him wearing a Winmau patch when the BDO are now sponsored by someone else. I'm ...

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

Because its underselling it massively. Fine, offer a "season ticket" deal but not 5 sessions of darts for as low as a tenner ffs. If its that low you are hardly committed to coming back to get your moneys worth. So better to have empty sessions in empty halls with no bar sales? Five minutes ago you...

Is this because nobody has bothered to enter? Especially after Des went to all that trouble to personally rescue this event?
