    25 - still fighting a bad throw because of an injured shoulder but it's going a little better.

    After a dismal few months I am starting to see my averages tighten up and rise again. Lots of work to do but getting there!

    It's been a while and a fight! My neck injury really caused me trouble but I'm finally starting to feel like things are going in the right direction. I've been shooting CCU in 9 game series and calculating my average over the games with my goal of averaging above 3mpr (for now). My latest was 2.79 seen here: upload_2018-1-9_13-55-30.png but it's taken work just to get there!

    Going back several weeks you can see I had a low point of 1.89. That was NOT a good day and while I often get close to 3mpr I've yet to hit it over 9 games.

    Here is a graph of my progress. At least you can see it's rising! LOL

    I should note that some days I do this 3 or 4 times and yesterday I did 4 of these and two so far today. Today was the first time all my games (18 so far) did not sink to below 2mpr so I felt that was a positive note. I have much work to do considering I used to be very mad if I dropped to 3mpr and expected myself to average in the 3.57 to 4.28 range.....

    Things are definitely improving! WhooHoo! It's a good feeling.

    I was only able to shoot 8 games as work just got in the way but I'll take that 3.0 since I was shooting well. Even the 14 wasn't as bad as it looks (to me) because it was so many just on the wrong side of the trip I knew I could get it back into it. Nice groups, feeling good and hit a lot of nice rounds....now to continue the trend!

    I just got picked up by an A team for Spring. I haven't played A since I lost everything! Looks like I need to hit the boards and get back in shape. I did a quick 100@20's and ended up with... 51! (LOL!) Very few in the 20's pie. I played a singles blind draw two weeks ago and had "moments" (a 180, 171, 162, a 9-count and a 16-dart 501 leg - wiring the 107 out for a 15), but didn't finish any of the legs when I had the darts against the two strongest players... I'm destroying the weak and letting the strong off the hook - THAT needs to change if I play in A without any "weak" to take advantage of - heh...

    It's a tough go to get it back, I KNOW! Good luck, you'll find the darts again!

    Still at it but not improving as fast as I'd like ;)

    So after 225 games of cricket count up I'm starting to see games int he 3 to 3.5mpr range but only averaging around 2.7mpr over a 9 leg/game stretch still (actually, just did the math and the last 7 sessions averaged 2.703mpr).

    I'm definitely improving as I'm hitting a lot of bigger shots to stay in the hunt for an average over 3mpr but can see I'm still just shy of the mark. Once I hit 3mpr I'll start working on 3.5 :D

    While working on my throw and concentrating on bringing my arm in front of me more I started shooting much nicer groups :) Shot an 'ok' 23 in CC and started my next run. Was doing fine with 3mpr to the 15 where I dropped 2 darts into the 2 and then did this to finish at 22 :)

    It isn't that I haven't hit plenty of these, I've long since lost count but lately I've really struggled so I was pretty stoked to stick them all in there so neatly today :)
    Gotta get back to working on the garage/shop cleanup etc but who knows, maybe I've cracked the code to my troubles of late!

    On a side note, who knows what board this is? LOL I was going to give it to someone (maybe Cannibal) a long time ago but just plumb forgot and found it sitting on a shelf so stuck it up for a change of pace :)
