So if I give Paula j benefits as well?
Begging the public for money to give to Paula Jacklin is a complete and utter disgrace!

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.
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 am of the opinion that there is a market for ladies darts (not just when a lady beats a man). I think Barry hearn believes so as well.

let's hope after next week something good will come from the ashes of the present bdo.

If Barry Hearn believed that then he would not have dumped ladies only darts would he?

The PDC have never had a ladies tour, just one half hearted "World Championship" in which:

1. Most of the best ladies did not compete.
2. Featuring ridiculous best of 7 leg matches that could be won simply by holding throw four times in a row, and
3. Won by an American who only ever qualified for the real womens world championship and who recorded a 65 average in her final victory.

Correct. As I said before. The glass ceiling was the market. If there was a demand for a true ladies WC the sponsors and the mainstream coverage would be there.

Supply and demand. No demand = Quest and falling prize money after a promised raise.

Right, here's the final tally prior to the start of the event - I will keep an eye on it to see how many more they sell once it starts.

This total assumes that all the seats on the left of the stage (looking from the stage) have not been sold - except for tomorrow when it looks like 1 has been sold.

The total assumes that the third party seller has sold its allocation - very unlikely but the numbers they were given were small.

The total assumes that the tickets sold on the balcony are not shown as being sold in the stage area - if they are then there is an element of double counting but it is what I've assumed all the way through.

The total assumes that two tables at the front have not been sold.

Here you go!
		Seats	Sold	% Sold
Sat	All Day	1625	692	43%
Sun	All Day	1625	467	29%
Mon	Aft	1625	228	14%
	Eve	1625	235	14%
Tue	Aft	1625	189	12%
	Eve	1625	207	13%
Wed	Aft	1625	221	14%
	Eve	1625	228	14%
Thur	Aft	1625	225	14%
	Eve	1625	253	16%
Fri	Aft	1625	454	28%
	Eve	1625	538	33%
Sat	All Day	1625	624	38%
Sun	All Day	1625	361	22%
Total		22750	4922	22%

That may be true, if you ignore the whole swathes that are not available to buy. How many they are giving away, how many 3rd-party sellers have got left, who knows?

I think my numbers are on the high side in terms of how many have actually been paid for, but might not be too far off in terms of how many seats are filled

Last year was 1378 for the first Saturday - any comparison with Lakeside is going to look awful in terms of numbers!

You just seem very loathe to say it on here and would rather chase Skewy for some random reason.
