Is the Pentathalon being streamed at all?
No El Ringo would accuse us of wasting more money , our “freebie” deal doesnt include extra days .
I think the Pentathalon is an event in which the BDO/EDO are missing a trick. It's an interesting and different event to anything that PDC run.
Most people say they are bored of the same players, whereas I think it's down to the same old format of 501.
I'd like to see "Half It" played a lot more as it's a game that can accomodate people who aren't the best 501 players out there.
Many a time in the pub when we've started a game of "half it" we usually end up with a few "none" darters involved and a little bit of a crowd if we start barricking each other.
Had some great epic games of Half it. Like you say sometimes the players you least expect can win this.
Remember the Flower's dartathlon being televised back in the olden days, as you both say it's difference is it's USP.
Bloody hell Nick - The Flower’s Dartsathalon finals was the first big darts competition that I attended!
Held at the The Redwood Lodge Country Club nr Bristol!
Big Cliff, Jocky, Eric, John Lowe and Mike G, Dave Whitcombe (from memory) took on qualifiers from different regions.
I have the programme somewhere - I will look it out!
