The Skittle Group held their end of term Christmas Party on the 20th December at their ‘headquarters’ The Crossways Inn, West Huntspill.
This last meeting of the year includes a celebration of the member’s ‘skills’, when the silver ware is presented, followed by a sumptuous Christmas lunch.
The award for ‘Best Overall Player’ for 2013 went to the Club’s Vice Chairman Bernard Martin and that for the ‘Best Lady Player’ for 2013 to Betty Worthy. Prior to taking lunch, and to build up an appetite, the members have a competition to see who can get the highest score and Billy Conibeer won the ‘Best on the Day’ cup.
The Group meets at the Crossways Inn on the first and third Fridays of every month from 11.30 am until about 01.00 pm when everything stops for a pub lunch. The playing of skittles is not taken too seriously because the group comprises a jolly socialable crowd and one thing you can be sure of is a good laugh. If you are interested in playing skittles and perhaps having a few ‘jars’ why not drop in ; there is a good car park, it is also easily accessible by bus.
