Beer & Skittles, June 2011
The club held a Beer & Skittles night in June 2011, which proved very successful. 11 teams of four players took part on a Friday evening in the concert room. A specially set up alley approximately 40 foot long was used and a tenpin-style triangular pin setup put a slightly different slant on the traditional game.
Bowlers from the club crown green teams took part, as well as others who are regular tenpin bowlers. Either way, it was a difficult adjustment to the different aims and conditions of the game. An added complication was the dimmed lighting and disco music in the background.
Three teams were eliminated after the first round and successive rounds reduced the teams to just two. Competition increased as the rounds progressed, as did the atmosphere heading into the final. The event was won by DOTTY'S DOLLIES, comprised of Dot, Jo, Janet & Ailsa.
A great night was topped by a selection of sandwiches from Margaret Tierney and we hope to have another Beer & Skittles night later in the year.
