Pirates: 2016 Year in Review
Hi everyone! This is a thread where you can share what Pirates stuff happened over the past year. It can be just about anything, from accomplishments to purchases to cool ideas. If this seems too vague, you can look at mine for an example. There's also the option of stating your Pirates Goals for 2017.
Link to 2015 Year in Review thread
(you might find your 2016 goals here)
It will be nice to look back upon the entire year and find joy and amazement in how much we're capable of. List (possibly with links and/or a short description) everything you accomplished in 2016 in regards to Pirates that you thought was a good thing that happened. Everyone could make their own post and contribute their own things that they did or are currently doing. When I think about this past week for example, I don't really think much of it, but when I consider everything I've personally done in the entire year, I feel amazed at myself!
I think others could share that feeling as well if they look back at everything. Also, little things count too, so it doesn't have to be all about one particular event or anything. Once everyone has posted, we can talk about what we accomplished as a whole forum.
Goals for 2016
-Taught 6 players, not 24. I think for the future I will simply try to beat my previous record for a single year. In that case, I will do my best to teach at least 8 players in 2017 (I taught 7 in 2015).
