The five-day dart battle brought in players from all over the world, including Canada, France, Spain and the Netherlands. Thursday hosted several early arrival games, while Friday held the prestigious Top Gun events. The latter came down to a hard-fought bout between Larry Butler and Eric Blackledge in the finals, and after four close games Eric clinched the title.
Several fun events kept eliminated players entertained as well, including “A Bud Blind Draw” and “Friday Hammer Cricket Doubles.” Sunday featured an international celebration, as well as the showdown between countries. In the end, the U.S. and the Netherlands met in the Bull Pen to play finals. After a back-and-forth competition, Netherlands took home the title of International Champions with the team saying it was the most memorable event of the whole weekend.
On Saturday, men and women fought on in Doubles and Cricket and more, and the cash prizes kept coming, too. Several parties kept the attendees entertained that evening and on Sunday night with $100 prizes given to a random player every hour.
“The tournament was a huge success with the weekend events running on time and the players having a great time enjoying all the competition, the camaraderie, renewing acquaintances from past BullShooters and making new friends,” said BullShooter reps.
