I guess this would be the same in pretty much any league anywhere. Dealing with different people and their personalities can be a real pain sometimes. This person doesn't want to be partnered with this person. This person doesn't like playing on this board, or "I don't like 501". "I don't want to play at that bar. It's too far/ I don't like their boards/food/drink selection". I could go on an on.
I love playing darts. I don't care if it's a long drive, a crappy bar, or a place with fewer boards so we have to wait until a match is finished to play the next one. A bad day of darts in a crappy bar is better than a great day at work.
It can be stressful though. I'm one of those people who want everyone to be happy and have a good time. Most of the time I spend so much time stressing to make sure the team is happy that I can't concentrate on my own game and I feel like my darts struggle because of it. I know it's just part of the territory, and it is what it is.
Does anyone else have these issues sometimes? After a while, it gets to where it's not fun anymore. _________________ I was addicted to the Hokey Pokey... but I turned myself around.

Went through this as a capt 12 yrs ago. Great bunch but 1 or 2 who always had a fuss.
It is never easy. Fortunately my present team has the "team first" mentality. The big issue here is getting people to show up on time.. _________________ MMDL South Shore Area Director MMDL Lights Out! Summer State Champion SuperVillains RIP Donnie Kelley..teammate, champion, and friend.
