Just wanted to make a note....Tournaments..Please get in and play! Club support/participation is so important. Not just for the club that you belong to, but all the clubs. We are all non-profit. Each club that I have gone to for the summer tour has been WONDERFUL! I may not of placed in the top 3, but I had so much fun and learn more and more about my pitching style and tecniques. I watch the higher classes and learn from those men and women. I have been able to move myself up little by little. At the past Connecticut State Tournament, I was in Womens A class. We had no Womens B, due to 6 women participating and 2 were in the high 50's and 2 in the 40's, while myself and one other brought up the rear being in the mid 20's. I was floored when I found out the I pitched 31% for the day! I had shot my butt off and did AWSOME, despite coming in last place. I never realized that I could actually keep up with the A women. It was a great time. One game I had was 68 shoes and my opponent and I shot 29 ringers each! I thought I was done after that, but I came back with a 9 ringer game @ 46 shoes and then my final game was a 19 ringer game that went 52 shoes. This is not just a game for the men.....we as women and juniors should get out there and sign up to show them what we got. Hopefully next year I will see more women and juniors at the tournaments. Until then....Have a Terrific end of summer season for 2010!!!
