Big meeting on Sunday

Post by devosteve » Fri Mar 20, 2020 9:28 am

Anyone know anything about the rumoured meeting on Sunday? Hearing something about Hearn and possibly the WDF.

Paul being a bit cryptic on facebook: "6 years later is that meeting of 6 years ago about to pay dividends" , commenting on this his own post from 2014;

"When you get the call to meet Mr B Hearn you just have to go"

Today the Tri-Nations send out their vision of the future of grass root darts. I would like to thank everyone involved from England Scotland and Wales in the support and preparation of these documents which can be viewed from the National websites of the three countries

“A Path for the Future”

Though no-one can know how long the Covid 19 crisis will last or how seriously the affects will have on our lives generally and or in darts specifically. However, the newly appointed executive of Tri-Nations Darts felt that the following statement of intent was appropriate at this time.

As we are all aware there has been considerable uncertainty concerning the future of the BDO these past few months and it’s a situation that worsened with the recent abdication of the majority of their directors.

Without dwelling on the well-publicised reasons for this continuing uncertainty, members interests have clearly not been best served with the ongoing lack of transparency or information, more so since the publication of their latest accounts, during which even our own auditors questioned the company’s ability to continue as a going concern, a point perhaps endorsed further by these resignations.

As a direct consequence to the auditors alarming warnings, the Tri-Nations have been working these past few weeks to put together an alternative proposal which will hopefully provide a viable and sustainable future for grass roots darts in Britain.

This proposal has been very accurately costed to ensure all members can have that future free from the threats of possible litigation and significantly, free from the damaging consequences that all the recent adverse publicity has caused.

If the members so choose, it will also allow us all to move forward together and when doing so protect the core events that we have all spent so many years enjoying and supporting.

Without making any unrealistic promises we all feel – as a new entity, that the new beginning this proposal could provide will also hopefully afford all members of Tri Nations Darts to negotiate and explore fresh contracts and sponsorship possibilities and do so unsullied by the damaging reputation that currently dominates our side of darts.

We obviously accept these potential opportunities can only be explored if and once the proposal is accepted by a majority of the three country’s current county members, and once the level of support has been ascertained, we will at the earliest opportunity and “national crisis permitting” then organise a meeting to openly discuss everything in more detail.

In the meanwhile we do ensure everyone that we will update everyone with any progress and do so in the hope that everything if accepted it could mean everything is in place for the new season - September/October 2020.

Yours Faithfully

Right ok. Two questions:

- Why on earth are Dave Allen, Matt Porter and Ed Lowy in that list above?
- Can this organisation simply just take over the events the BDO run like the Gold Cup? Surely it isnt that simple.

Because now that the BDO is gone, it makes sense to discuss how to go forward.
