2017 Festival Of Darts

And so once again The Weigh Inn Festival of Darts has passed and once again a great success. The Friday Night “Aaron Mc Menamin” Festival Shoot Out Classic attracted 112 players which is the first time almost all 96 players took part plus a few more. It shows the high regard they had for young Aaron by wanting to play in this inaugural event. Sorry it went on so late but couldnt be helped, it will be done slightly different to save time next year. Our good friend James Richardson beat Brendan Dolan in the final. Both players gave Aarons mother Margaret the trophies to keep and also their sets of darts used in the match as a memento. A few emotional speeches finished of the night. Saturday saw the qualifiers start at 1pm and 6.30pm with 6 players at 8 boards both sessions. To win through a group on any board you had to have your “A” game as the standard of darts was outstanding to say the least, 11 12 13 dart finishes were common on all boards, a few 170 checkouts also pleased the crowds watching. All board finishers were posted already so wont name them again. Sunday saw the finals day for all three comps start at 12 noon with The Consolation Comp won by Roy Bailie beating Shane Mc Quirk in the final. Next up was the Weigh Inn Classic contested by James Delahunty and local Davy guy with Davy coming out on top. Last up was the big one The Weigh Irish Open. Once again this match went to the wire (as usual every irish Open final has ended 7 – 6 ) contested by local player Justy Mc Guigan and Belfast player Neil Duff and boy did they put on a show for the crowds watching. No matter what Justy threw at Neil he came back at him and edged him out 7-6 and putting another new name on the trophy. Take a bow Neil Duff well done Justy, super darts.
I would like to thank board sponsors, G Mc Girven, Woods Engineering, Tierney’s Auto repairs , X Cat Omagh, Electronics Direct, JJ Meegan Accountants, Aidan Loughrey, Flynn Belfast. Hope haven’t left anyone out. A big thanks to all who bought tickets in the “180” Draw outright and to those who bought the scratch cards winning a ticket. Only 43 to sell now before the draw is made live on fb. Thanks to callers and the chalkers for the finals board and to the bar staff for keeping the crowds hydrated lol.
Last but not  least a big thank you to all the players who descended on The Weigh Inn at the weekend from all parts of the Island and across the water with their wives, partners, and friends. A lot of new faces this time which is good for the game and made a lot of new friends. A great bunch off people to have in the bar, the craic was 90! It makes it all worth while when you look around and see so many renewing friendships, making friendships and enjoying the weekend. Superb darts, superb people and thanks for coming.
On a final note next years festival is back to the usual weekend, 2nd weekend August 10th 11th 12th
Knew I forgot something, a big thank you to D Gurney for sponsoring the trophies for the festival. I know he would have loved to have been here to try win the Friday night Aaron Mc Menamin Shoot out Classic but was in Australia furthering his career. Thanks Darryl.

The Weigh Inn Festival of darts 2016

Over for another year… The Weigh Inn Festival of Darts 2016 lived up to expectations again with a weekend of top class darts from top class dart players. Once again it was proved that you have to bring your “A” game to progress in this high standard competition. From the Friday night double in comp the “Shoot – Out Classic” to the “Classic” and The Weigh inn “Irish Open” the big crowds attending witnessed super darts with 10/11/12 dart finishes and 6 x 170 check outs and 180’s to numerous to count. The Friday night comp went to Brendan Dolan with runner up spot going to our regular visitor from across the water James Richardson (Josh won it last year). Finals day on Sunday after the qualifiers on Saturday brought a great crowd of supporters in to watch and boy they were not disappointed. The Weigh Inn Classic went to a nail biter with John Porter just nicking it from Roy Baillie 6-5. The Weigh Inn Open as usual went to the wire with Daryl Gurney edging out Mickey Mansell 7-6 in a very entertaining match. The Consolation Comp was won by Richard Reid beating Barry Mallon in the final (sorry no photo) As usual everything ran smoothly thanks to the players carrying out their duties as regards chalking and being at the boards when their matches were scheduled. We would like to thank all who took part, the players, the supporters and indeed the extra bar staff who worked endlessly keeping the refreshments flowing lol. Thanks to the chalkers and the callers for covering the semis and the finals. Roll on 2017 ??????

Semis £250 and last 8 £150. Another successful competition  in The Weigh Inn Bar.
