Annual skittles and curry event at The Crofts 2018
Thank you Steve and Lorraine for another great night. Thank you also to Tony (TS) Smith as interim Soc Sec for arranging the event in his absence. Just in case you didn’t know, it is all beer and skittles whatever your mother told you.
Special mention goes to Bob Perry (the ponderer) who received an engraved stainless tankard in recognition of his outstanding and continuous service to the club, including junior coaching, ladies coaching, organizing the teams and of course his role in getting court 4 off the ground. Rich Murphy made an emotional homily in making the presentation (thanks Rich) which may have unnerved him somewhat as he produced an outstanding display of accuracy by sending three consecutive balls through the narrow gap between all 9 skittles – a bagel! Meanwhile Ollie G showed great ball control to outscore the rest of the field and win star prize – lunch for two at the Sunday Carvery. Well done to Tim, Frazer and others who helped stack the woodyard and, again to Bob, as designated driver who managed to get those of us home who couldn’t remember where we lived. I blame the bubbles in the beer.
Frazer seems to have noticed that his beer appears unusually thin and tasteless:
