    I am trying to wean myself off of league darts and start to do some actual bonafide tournaments. Mostly at this point I'll be going for experience and mostly in it to plat singles.
    Often these events have a blind draw though. Now, sometimes I can shoot fantastic darts but with me being in a new environment/situation the opposite is more likely.
    So, with that in mind, as a general rule of thumb are people more likely to take things in stride or will I be ruining someone's day?

    In stride buddy! I always enjoy LOD's and never cared who I played with good, new or struggling (like I am lately). LOD's are about FUN! Meeting people and having some good competition at the same time.

    So have a pint, toss some arrows and laugh a little Wink

    OK I have for sure lost money in local LOD's because my partner after having a ton of success with me having fun and being relaxed shooting darts suddenly becomes super serious and super tense and then makes me super tense..

    I highly recommend going to bigger tournaments. Not just for the play but also for the atmosphere. It's really different than bar or league play. I love it. It's just fun to watch some matches. There are several top notch matches at every big tournament.

    As far as the LOD's are concerned. Usually, they are a ton of fun. There can be some real pressure in later rounds but for the most part they're great. However, I have a word of warning. There's always a possibility that you could draw a complete jerk as a partner. It's happened to all of us. There's always at least one douche nozzle at these things with delusions of grandeur that will be bummed he didn't draw Phil The Power Taylor as a partner (this is usually a bigger problem for female players). It happens on occasion unfortunately. I don't want you to think it's always that way in the unlikely event it happens to you. These occurrences are rare, but sadly they do happen.

    OK fair enough. You now have me excited that I am going to be going to one of these things! If nothing else, I can make sure that I'm not the douche nozzle! Wink
