My problem being "older" and learning a new game is arm strength. I can sidearm flick ok and I attribute that to being a sidearm ball pitcher. Backhand has been a real challenge, and so the goal is practice, practice, practice. Anyway, I can't let my sons FWAP and "room 240" think they can out do their dad. And too I have grandson Zach and brother Frank also learning the game. This is quickly becoming a family affair as room 240's wife Caren also plays. This will make Christmas easier this year.
