    Decided to shoot some CCU with my 18G (plus add-a-gram steel conversions) today to see where I am at after a dismal run at it last week and managed a high of 26 today. Most often though I was shooting around 18 :(

    Got some work to do! But at least I shot several rounds in the 21-24 range so at least I can still shoot around 3mpr despite my long absence from practice or serious play. Now if only I could get back up about 30! lol

    After some work I finally hit a 30 :) Hit a couple trips RIGHT outside the wire so I KNOW I can hit better still. Averaging in the mid 20's now.

    My goal is to try to beat my previous recorded high of 35 in the practice rankings and then move on to another of the scores I should be able to improve ;)

    I still remember throwing a 36 against Johnny K. at a Colorado Open a bunch of years back. So what did he hit? 42. 8O Completely played it off like it was nothing too. He didn't admit until the next day that it was the best he'd ever thrown! :lol:

    A bit sore today (dumb since I have league tonight) and not shooting as well as yesterday with my max today being 18.....that's a far cry from even yesterdays 30! Hopefully I can work out the bugs before league tonight

    Hit a few more 30's but today so far only a 28.

    I find this is a challenge for me these days! Trying to see if I could break my 34 from years past now that I am used to the 18g darts (not using my 20's yet since I have no conversion tips to use with them until I get to the cabin and get the ones I left there on another set of my 18g's).

    Thinking back I realize that I was averaging 4.86mpr to hit that 34 and a 30 is just 4.29.....just need to average 5mpr to the bulls LOL....nothing to it right?

    Whoohoo! 33! I really blew it on the 15 and bull as well as the 19 but some 6,7 and 9 marks sure helped!

    29...hmmm.....need to improve. Hands are cold so I turned up the heat. I want to see 35 still!

    34.....damn 19's!

    about 5 or 6 9 marks today and still not doing it! But hit TWO in the last CCU game but blew a couple shots and only hit 3 bulls.

    Grrrrrr......28, 30, 31, 29, 32, 27, 29, 31, 33, 28, 32

    I'm so close I can taste it! I HATE hitting the trips on the wire outside my target. SO many times today I could have easily hit close to 40 in CCU but a few trips just outside the wire in the wrong wedge kept me from it....I'll keep trying.

    I was mucking about at a soft tip blind draw the other day. decided to throw a few rounds of this see what happened on a soft tip board.

    Ran through about 5-6 times and had a low of 35 lol. Just made me want to go home and throw real darts.

    Been trying today but can't seem to break out of the 20's....usually running 23 to 29....only one 9 mark...might have something to do with it and too many darn misses! lol

    32....should have been more but missed the T15 to push me up a little more and missed the bull with one dart.....grrrr

    35! Did it! Should have been better LOL as I missed on the 15 and 16 (not all darts, just one each) but still, passed my old CCU up and moved into the Blue :)

    28 on the pro trainer today!!! LOVE it :)

    Shot better last night in league too with a 3.64mpr (soft) still not as good as it should be but back on track. Now if milling this weekend doesn't mess me up than I am hopeful next week I'll see even better performance :)

    26 today and only missed the bull! Felt good for once but that was after a lot of sub 21 scores. Had to let up on my grip a bit and then they went straight again! Now if I can keep that going.
