Mike Day Benefit Night

Thursday was a 'benefit night' for Mike Day and his trip to the UK for the BDO World Champs at the Lakeside. 68 people entered the Ham and Chicken drawn pairs competition and many turned up in fancy dress to add to the fun. It was a light hearted night befitting a celebration that one of our own will be on the World Championship stage. With the entry fees and several raffles run on the night an impressive $1020 was raised to help Mike with his expenses for the trip.

Because so many people turned up for the drawn pairs and the fun atmosphere the games progressed slowly to the point where we would have been there well into the morning to complete the event. It was eventually re-drawn with the same pairs into a one life knockout to make sure we did complete the event.

The eventual winners of the Hams in the Final were Emma Heavey and Mike Radford who beat Peggy Wikaira and Mike McLeod, to won the Chickens.

All the best to Mike and we hope he goes far and can even better the recent feats of Rob Szabo v Phil Taylor in the PDC World Champs !
