Looked like it on the live score updater, it's a bit jumpy so it's hard to tell.

Calling Welsh Wayne!!

If my calculations are correct, Jamie Lewis has gone up to 26th in the Lakeside Table. He earned 10 points this weekend.

If the BDO are giving 24 places to the Table like has been suggested, Jamie will be the final qualifier from the Table, assuming no last desperate trips to the French Open by other players.

Please don't hold me to this though, the BDO have yet to oficially state how many places will come from the table. Ridiculous really, given this stage of the season.

Of course, I could be wrong. Has ANYONE seen an official press release from the BDO stating how many places they are giving to the Table?

More than likely all around a table as we speak debating if they can put another qualifying event in :angry4: :angry4:

They already did that with the Europe Cup!

Luckily the only person it could have helped was John Henderson. However the fact he didn't go to Selsey renders it reundant.

But they need to announce it at the start. None of the players officially have a clue how many spots will be given to the Table. Steve Douglas has said he has been told it is 24, but it could be 20, 22, 23.... who knows?

Deta did enough today just to win beat Karen 4/0 with 22+ ave but actually missed 21 darts in 1st leg!
Final was low key and she couldn't get fired up and in all honesty would have been an enormous shock if she lost,
Anyway was pleased as this victory was her 10th ranking event of the season compared to trinas 4 so although not BDO no1 is wdf no1, marvellous season from a very special lady

Hi Everyone,
Just trawled through the posts and I would like to make a couple of points, due to the fact that we had never tried an early bird 64 before (pinched the idea off PDC), we were not sure how it would be taken up, so we didn't have a multitude of rules for who should be allowed or not in the event, to be honest I never even gave it a thought, so I must apologise for that, however it is our intention to try and get ranking points for this next time, so we aired on the side of caution by only having non-PDPA players in it, 12th hour decision but you live and learn. However we did put £1700 of our own money in the event.

There was a point about the draw, I can only tell you all, that England Do Not seed any players in any events, much to the disgust of many players, we use Darts for Windows press the button for a random draw and it comes out as it comes out, and that is the honest truth.

Unfortunately the control desk of the complex blew up (£74,000) of equipment, this could happen anywhere at anytime, however the staff and management at Selsey did everything possible to get it replaced, and it was out for about 1 hour.

England always pay more prize money out than the entries they receive, we got in around £3000 entry fees and paid out £6500 in the Mens and paid out just short of £3000 in the Ladies and received around £1100. However this doesn't seem to encourage everyone to attend the events, scratching my head on that one.

England will be announcing shortly the prize fund for the Open in 2011 which will make it the biggest Open in the World for comparable entry fee, £5000 first prize. England are also intent on making the prize funds at their events not decrease to less than 40% of the prize above, therefor the runners-up prize will be £2000.

We know we have a problem with the Marquee floor, hopefully this will not be the case next year, you all have to understand that England as an independant entirity has only been in existance for three years, we started off with no money, no events etc, whilst we take on board we need to improve some things such as equipment etc, we have moved mountains in such a lot of areas, some of the officials we have are brilliant, the live scoreboard on the website is just one thing of many. We have to use the funds we generate from these events to fund the England International teams, which costs a terrific amount, so finance is a big issue, but we are able to improve things albeit on a tight budget.

Please remember England is not just another BDO in disguise, although we are affiliated to them, we are our own people.

Bit of a headscratcher then that Martin Adams (England Captain) doesnt support your events by playing in them.

I hope this means that PDPA members will be barred from the pairs and triples events in the future?
