AQSC Skittles Night - 22 July 2006
was the second year running that the skittles evening was held at The
Grantley Arms pub in the village of Wonersh. Lyn's Badminton Club once
again provided 'the opposition' although we had to lend them some
players to equal things up a bit. People started arriving shortly after
6:00pm and by 7:00pm the skittles got underway.
Alison kindly allowed herself to be talked into
scoring again and we got a couple of games in before supper was served
at 8:00pm. That seemed to go down well and lots of extra deserts got
Eric Bridgewater, Keith hatton, Mike Baker tucking in
As soon as things were cleared away Alison started coming up with
various novel ways to chuck balls down the skittles alley. Things
progressively got out of hand ending up with Richard trying to bowl
himself down the alley. Two or three more games were completed by the
time we finished at around 11:00pm.
So how did it work out? Well AQSC won the team prize. Liz
Archer won the highest individual score. Roy Clough won the highest
placed man and I scraped the prize for lowest individual score and
instead awarded it to Alison for all her hard work organising the
skittles and doing the scoring.
The individual prizes were
bottles of wine in support of Project Homerus and the team prizes were
boxes of chocolates (no expense spared here). The evening seemed to go
really well with everyone from both clubs really getting into the
spirit of it all. One or two new comers seemed somewhat bewildered by
the fact that there was no machine to reset the skittles and were heard
muttering "it's not like ten pin bowling is it". No, it certainly isn't
and long may it stay so.
