The November meeting was our annual Skittles Match against the men of the Drayton Group, and what a fabulous evening it was too. Thank you to everyone who took part. We managed two good rounds of skittles before food was served, and had plenty of time for a final third round afterwards. There was plenty of encouragement and barracking on both sides, and hilarity to boot. Not sure we all followed official rules, but we certainly enjoyed ourselves.
Regrettably the ladies did not win this year......aaaaaaah I hear you say........but after two years at the top, it is only fair that the men were given their moment of glory. It also means we don't have to dust the trophy for at least a year. However, we weren't far behind the men, so a big thank you to all who took part and fought to the last........our lady with the highest score was presented with a bottle of wine.
We were well served by the Drayton Crown, with perfect seating arrangements for when the delicious food was served. We were also very ably assisted by a young man who graciously agreed to 'stick up' for us, and very professional he was too.
