    Tom OC or anyone out there who puts tournaments on in the New England area what are the chances that a big Round Robin Tourney ever gets put on? That would be the most darts for your money and I am sure a Big turnout would show. It may take 2 days of constant shooting for everyone to play but it could be easy to keep track of if anyone has a laptop with Excel on it.

    I am thinking 36 boards or more would be needed. each players plays the other players 5 games (2 cricket and 3 501)

    With all that playing time I am thinking $40 a person. And payout to the top 16.

    9-16 = $80
    5-8 = $120
    4 = $160
    3 = $250
    2 = $500
    1 = $750

    With room to adjust up or down depending on participation.

    I know that with that kind of payout a lot of top shooters will go!!! and more importantly it is just as affordable as having 2 or 3 tourney's the same day with more money and more participation.

    For that to work you only need 70 shooters to show up OR some sponsor for the boards.

    I say make it 110% payout with sponsors covering all the admin fees, the extra 10% and whatever other fees that might be incurred.

    The LeSkratch tournament in Montreal each May is the only one I can think of that is similar to this vision. You should study the format of the LeSkratch and see if it could be adapted.

    The PDSL, because of our singles focus, is obviously looking at this for future events.

    Keep in mind that the size of the tourny you are suggesting might be tough because you will probably only get the Top Shooters. A lot of B and C shooters (even some A shooters) that are decent shots might not want to "donate" $40.00.

    How about this.
    Based on a minimum of 32 entrys. $50 entry fee.
    Pay out of $1600.00
    1st $600
    2nd $300
    3rd/4th $150
    5th-8th $100
    With more entrys, payouts will be adjusted accordingly. If 64 or more players show it will pay out Top 16
    1st $1000
    2nd $500
    3rd/4th $250
    5th-8th $125
    9th-16th $75

    Round Robin Format 2 - 4 players per board Best of 5 sets, 3 legs per set.
    Top 16 Enter same format till Finals. Best of 7 sets 3 legs per set.
    Begin at 10am. Loser of each match must chalk the next match.

    **Consolation Round** $20 buy in to begin after top 8 begins. Full payout. Best of 7 legs and if time allows a luck of the draw.

    Sound good?

    I'm sure it "could" be put on Rob. Personally though, I run four Challenge tournaments a year in addition to helping with two PDL Singles, Darts to Defeat Cancer, benefit tournaments, now the GWO's another, and I've added the Chuck Breadmore Memorial to my annual plate at the request of my lodge. I really hated declining an offer I had just this weekend becuase I like getting new events running, but I'm too swamped to take on anything else.

    I'd be more than happy to offer any advice I can to help somebody willing to take this on and I'll see that's it's well advertised.

    It sounds like a great idea so far, but I'm thinking Wire has some important comments you'd want to consider before etching anything in stone. Finding a way to incorporate the junior level players is key to getting the numbers you want to acheive.

    Personally I would go to a tourney like this for free... but seeing as not many others would show up just for bragging rights I just threw some numbers out there. I know I end up spending $30 at those Braintree tourney's due to multiple entries so I just figured $40 wasnt much more considering how much more darts you would be gauranteed to throw.

    We could do the same thing with lower payouts at $20 or $25 entry fee.

    or have two divisions but then we would need some sort of way to verify what skill level the players are. thats why i didnt want skill level introduced...

    I know I went to the US open just to be able to throw against "the best" knowing I wasnt going to win (although i was hoping Twisted Evil to squeek two wins out) and that was $145 to enter...

    Can you get a tournament such as these ADO sanctioned? If you could and could generate ADO points that rival a regional playoff that might be a little more incentive. Maybe a round robin on the first day and play up to top 16 or top eight. Finish on second day....

    hmmmm i wonder. anyone know about ADO points? that would undoubtedly add to the fees and mean more sponsors would be needed to get to the 110% payout i was hoping for.

    rob,
    It only cost me $40.00 to play in US open. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

    With that said, I think you have a good idea but Tom is right, you need to examine what Wire said. Sure, you may get close to 30 of the top shooters, maybe a little more, but the B, C, and average A players will be needed to make up the rest of the entries. I may be mistaking but I don't think they would want to throw in the $40.00 with a good chance of being knocked out in the first round. I think if you combine Adams and your idea's together it would work out. You would have to lower the entry to maybe $25.00 and I think you would get a good number of shooters.

    no one will be knocked out in the first round!
    that is the point of a round robin everyone gets to play everyone else. LOTS of DARTS! Fun time for all. Cool

    also why i think they would be willing to spend the $25 to $40 to play...
    they wouldnt have to worry about possibly getting knocked out after one. at the very least they are assured a full day or two of competitive darts for their money. as far as i am concerned well worth the money. Cool
