Cheats Xmas Lunch 17 December 2006
    A great time was had by all and he Cheats Christmas Party included everything from great food, a fun atmosphere and an opportunity for a bit of out of season competitive spirit.
    Thirty six Aquarius SC members, including 10 juniors, arrived at lunchtime for what was to be a very enjoyable afternoon. The clubhouse looked particularly jolly having been decorated for the event with maritime flags. Nigel Knowles' culinary skills were put to the test when he expertly cooked a superb four course meal for everybody (Jamie Oliver look out!).
    The lunch was followed by a games tournament including darts, bar billiards and table tennis. Six teams of four were put together, and all of the games were played in the most sportsmanly way.
  The darts match was particularly closely fought with Bryan Clements adjudicating expertly to achieve a very fair result.
     The table tennis table held together in the end, despite some late adjustments. Most of the adults seemed to surprise themselves with their latent table tennis skills, and the ping-pong ball was only seen flying out of the clubhouse door once or twice.
    As usual the bar billiards was particularly popular, but it was obvious which players had been practicing their skills for the tournament. Again, a very fair result was marked up on the scoreboard.
    Tommy Winchester led his team to overall victory in the tournament. The winning team were awarded a big box of chocolates for their sporting efforts, and they generously shared them around.

    I should have added the many youngsters who acted as waiters plus all those who helped setting up.
