A week and a half ago.
It would seem that despite having these meeting. And making those statements Des and the BDO still haven't made any contact with the venue they have in the calender for the World Trophy
Have you phoned King Georges hall up?
Sent them an email asking when tickets would go on sale. They've had no contact from the BDO.

Will not happen. As it shouldn't have done for the last 3 years.

The only caveat is of course if the BDO manage to get a proper headline sponsor willing to pay for everything.

This isnt going to happen, But it might be played due to the Eurosport contract

And bankrupt the company? Or are they going to play it without paying for production and with no prize fund?

They literally cant afford it.
There needs to be a wake up call here.
The auditors have basically said the BDO is insolvent.
No one,not a production company etc are going to do anything without being paid up front.
It really is all over Oche unless they are white knighted .

If anything positive happened don't you think Des would have shouted it from the rooftops?

Of course it will be on telly, and on Eurosport, Uncle Des said he was talking to Eurosport about putting on 2 more events a year, why would he do that if the cost of broadcasting them was crippling the company?

The secret ‘sponsors ‘ are covering the cost.

BDO got another Northern Cyprus ad onto the FB page yesterday, I see.

Their last 5 posts on there:

Yesterday - Cyprus
20th Feb - Cyprus
2nd Feb - Torre
23rd Jan - Torre
19th Jan - Torre

Embarrassing.

Really the Jacklins want to run the BDO for these holiday competitions.

well I asked a genuine question to KGH Blackburn. I have been and intend to go again to this comp (if I 'win' tickets for a fourth time that is) so enquired after getting a facebook post rom them advertising up and coming events.

This was the reply I got today:

"Hi Steve, BDO aren't currently booked in to return but we announce all new shows and events on our Facebook page if you are following us. Thanks."

These are facts aren't they. Not booked in! So they only booked one year in for the KGH.

Did he say 3yr TV deal though or 3 years at Blackburn?

Whatever it doesn't look like they are going back. Anyone could book the scheduled dates.
