A big thank you once again to everyone who took part and of course to Pure darts for donating the prize!!
As for updating you all on my own darts goings on, there was no actual game, but there was a doubles tournament. Not too much to say about that, other than that the only thing less underwhelming than the tournament was my own level of play. I think there is maybe some merit though in the notion that I need to be patient with myself and with the process as this is what I am hearing from both my wife (and doubles partner) and mentor George Silberzahn, but it is still so frustrating to see what should be within my reach slipping away.
The answer, I think and a bit of a tough one is to keep on top of good focused and consistent practice and to not be a jerk but to not lose it to the chit chat. I need to play with a certain intensity and focus on the goal.
It is either that or 'playing just for fun' and to me that is not fun at all. I get frustrated, I'd say more than I should considering my lack of experience, but I want the ups and the down; I want the journey.
I want to practice when others would be playing and to be playing when others would be resting.
In the end , I have no idea what I have 'in the tank'. It will be a long way to find out, years that will likely run into decades.
One throw at a time.
