Tenerife Tourney!

 
 
World's first Wild Bull Darts Festival
 
Held Sept. 2008 in Tenerife, Spain- players from numerous European Nations descended on the 'jewel of the Canary Islands' for a weekend of electronic steel darting and fun.  Players from markets such as the Netherlands, Ireland, Spain, Turkey and more pre-qualified and won trips to compete at the Festival and for the honor of representing their Country.
 
Billed as a small yet exclusive tournament, the Festival was unlike any other electronic darting event.  Not only because it was the for electronic steel darting but because of the quality of the destination, the focus on the player and the activities planned for the guest.
 
For some the highlight of the weekend was the open bar reception party, for others it was the darting competition and for others it was the yacht trip on the Peter Pan ship.  Paul Wijnants, of the Netherlands and Wild Bull operator stated, "Our players enjoyed the resort, the lovely weather and meeting the other competitors.  It was a small yet really unique event."
 
The tone for the weekend was set by Merlin's Marketing Director, Steve Pope, when he addressed the crowd at the reception party by stating, "This event is our way of saying thank you for supporting your local WIld Bull machines.  We hope you enjoy excellent competition, ask that you make every effort to extend your hand to a new face in the crowd and socialize with others outside of your team.  The drinks are on the house, and just make sure you make it to the ship tomorrow for a great cruise and whale watching!"
 
Much of the logistical support was provided by long time Wild Bull Operator, Raff Vandenberghe and his wife Jacky.  Raff added, "My players have been playing Wild Bull electronic darts for years and they are over the moon about the opportunity to try their skills against players from the likes of Ireland or Turkey.  This is such a nice opportunity and reward for their years of dedication and support."
 
Raff and Jacky also run a professional photo company and took some amazing pictures of the event.  CLICK HERE TO SEE SOME OF THESE PHOTOS.
