The MLD "Local" Ventura Highway Shootout was well received and enjoyed. Some of the comments were:
"... enjoyed the match, it's not often you get the chance play long format darts."
"It was fun got to shoot against strong talent in this format! When's the next event?"
"This format should be tried for 'B' and 'C' division players just less total legs!"
- Most matches were very even with a few standout players really showcasing their talents.
- For several players this was truly a test of stamina as they were unaccustomed to playing 5 legs in round robin singles and best of 11 legs in the knock out bracket.
- All players took the chalking responsibilities seriously, and players reported for their matches in a timely manner.
- Many players are looking forward to the West Coast Tour Stop, and several want to have another MLD Local event in this area.
