I posted the stream link in the shoutbox this morning - enjoyed watching the first session while waiting for the company laptop to actually do something.

I might catch the end of tomorrows early session, but looking forward to watching the later session while the company laptop does it's impersonation of a tortoise again. Hopefully I'll catch a bit of the final session on Saturday as well, although not convinced on that one either.

Thanks for the link Mike!

Sometimes it’s nice to watch some matches at home without the super-human scoring of the PDC crowd , gives me some positive re-enforcement that maybe I’m only 10 years out instead of a 100! Big Grin

Cheers

Darts Australia have actually done a pretty good job with this. Streams are great and looks a nice venue with a good atmosphere. Good for Australian darts and good for the little town of Moama.
