For those of you not familiar with the agility game snooker, here's a quick little overview. First, there's an opening and a closing sequence. In the opening you need to do a red jump followed by numbered obstacle, then you need to do a (different) red then a number, and finally another (different) red, and then another numbered obstacle. There are lots of silly little rules you need to remember like you can't take two reds back to back and you can't take two obstacles back to back unless they are grouped in the same numbered sequence, and some obstacles you can only take in one direction and once you take a red you can't take it again, and you have to accumulate a certain amount of points to qualify, and and and...get the drift? Oh, and if you mess up, you hear the whistle of snooker doom and you're done.
Anyway, this was my plan for the opening of this morning's course...looks pretty smooth, right?
Well, this is pretty close to what we ended up with...
Whoa. This is why me and snooker are not friends.
We actually had made it through the opening until Peyton took the #3 jump backwards (for zero points) and instead of starting the closing I sent Peyton to the #2 tunnel twice. Oops. We heard the whistle of doom.
At least we made it a little further than yesterday when we were whistled off after taking one red and then two tunnels in a row. :)
While I'm not really a snooker fan (yet), I'll admit that I really enjoy watching good snooker teams run. They can usually manage to come up with and execute a good strategy without looking like they are a) drunk and/or b) crazy. This morning I'm pretty sure I ended up looking like both.
Overall, we had a good time at the trial this weekend...videos and recap coming soon.
