The End of an Era? Are you going?

Post by Paddy McGinty » Mon Dec 17, 2018 3:12 pm

With the rumour mill in full spin and the devastating talk that this could be the last Worlds at Lakeside, who from this forum will be attending the Mecca of darts this year?

I really did try and work a way to go up on the Wednesday but I have a trips/holidays planned to Turkey/Las Vegas/Greece and the Lake District in 2019 so need literally every days holiday!

It is going to be an end of an era. Growing up Lakeside was the highlight of the year to watch when all the great characters were playing and the atmosphere electric. It made darts popular.

Surely this would of been Jollee's Club rather than the Lakeside

Bristow only won once at Lakeside in 87

An unofficial announcement of an announcement here.

Last lakeside? No concrete evidence.

The haters are now pretending to be pro bdo.

Lakeside the home of world darts. That's what I read anyway. Surely the bdo are not going to make themselves intentionally homeless?
