I am still finding my footing with how I am shooting now as before I signed up for 'Flight School' and I had a partner who seems to have had a turn to a kind of very competitive urgency that the playoffs seemed to instill in him and which was more than a little aggravating to me. That being said, we did at least win a leg.
As for how the whole team did, well it seems misery loves company and we were beat across the board with only a couple of wins on the whole night.
Thankfully the other team was good natured and gentlemanly and in truth simplu out gunned us. I am looking forward to playiing them again when my game is up a notch, but iindeed they were a pleasure to play with.
So now a few weeks until the fall and my first full season and first as a full fledged member. Most of the people I have been playing with will now be on opposing teams! I am looking forward to the challenge of playing against them!
Predictions have also been made that I will be top two on my team and a strong candidate for rookie of the year. That remains to be seen. For now I just want to learn and grow and continue to develop my game and my focus. I figure as it is I do about six hours of solitary practice to every game I play. A real sense of 'getting it' comes and goes but I know I have a hill to climb before I get to where I would like to be.
It's a great game though, and I'm maybe a bit mad with my addiction to it, so I think save to say I'll get there.
In darts you know you've made it when they name a dart after you!
Thanks for being with me on my darts journey. More to come soon! (likely after my wedding!)
