Daily Walkthrough - Pick A Tournament

Post by Rogg » Tue Mar 24, 2020 11:54 am

We are to wander through a televised tournament from history, one day a time. Picking out news, sport, music and anything else from the time.

But mainly digging up articles and videos from the tournament itself. Your memories of the tournament and its matches, the highs and the disasters as we go through.

Suggest a tournament to use. Keep it PDC for now. It needs to have reasonable coverage online, so pick something relatively recent. No Ladas or Quadro boards, thanks.

2017 World Matchplay

I was thinking of going a bit further back into history but we can do that. Keep the suggestions coming. If it goes well then we'll use a few of them.

I don't think we even have a match schedule for that one.

Again I don't think we have schedules for mid-90s stuff. UK Open is too chaotic.

2008 Worlds
2012 Worlds
2015 Grand Prix
2017 Grand Prix

...noted. Nice one.
