Do we know how this money is being doled out? Does Tony just send them 16 equal payments, payments based on how far they get, or just hand it to Des and let him sort it out?

If the press get hold of this then maybe the bdo will be shamed into increasing some of those figures.

A bit embarrassing really.

They can't be shamed into spending money that they don't have.

Already blown the rest of the cash reserves

If the ladies championship was run as a separate event then the prize money would be pennies. Outside of the ladies and their families there would be no tickets sold for the event, paying customers are not interested. As it stands they piggyback the men’s event and should be lucky the prize fund is as high as it is.

Financing the women over the last few years has drained the BDO of cash. I hope the men realise this.

Someone should tell Phil H at the Metro
“Deluxe have put together a seriously good team behind this , who are used to events at the very top of British and international sports.
They are certainly not muppets and must truly believe the BDO is marketable”

You'd like to think so, but Tony O'Shea and Jim Williams aren't the brightest of minds.

I wonder if Tony h has done this to get media attention in the hope of someone stepping in with sponsorship?

If it raises money then that will be good for the ladies themselves but not great for the bdo or ladies darts.

Hopefully there will be a final count tomorrow for the comp but even that wont be accurate as we now know there have been giveaways, also wont account for tables blocked off for sale on other sites.
There will be a count tomorrow evening. The first Saturday has sold a few on one of the tables on the left which had previously not been available, so I think this will be the best attended day, barring a last minute surge once the event starts.

£295 in the begging bowl now! Simon "Stubby" Carruthers shelled out £100 of his hard-earned.

I did put in the post I hope it did create the possibility of a sponsor stepping in.

I think we all know BDO enterprises will be done after this WC, But I am just trying to give the ladies a bit more than a weeks wage for something they have paid and travelled for since october 2018.

I have tried for the ladies that is all. I think they deserve better.

The BDO have not been able to add any money to the prize fund for the ladies or Sportotal.

So what should we do.
Boycott the event.

If I walk into work on Monday and my boss tells me he can't afford to pay me the amount we agreed, I'm not about to phone my missus and get her to set up a crowdfunding page.

I appreciate the sentiment, but IMO your energy would be better spent trying to hold those responsible to account for their lies and ineptitude.
Bingpot!

Wayne dobinson saying on fanatic's that the Saturday is near sold out downstairs and there is good numbers sold for the Friday, Saturday and Sunday sessions the last weekend, whether that's to be believed or not is another matter

I'm sure the ladies applaud your efforts, Spud. However this shouldn't be down to you and the public.

Sadly our horse-braiding friend is a colossal incompetent who makes stupid decisions on the fly and has virtually bankrupted the BDO through his stupidity and refuses to admit ANY culpability for his abject failure.

I hope you get a few quid for the girls but this is supply and demand sending out a huge message.

You could always "do a Parletti" and keep it, I suppose. :D :D :D

Begging the public for money to give to Paula Jacklin is a complete and utter disgrace!
