Skittles Evening with Cotswold Classic Car Club

Stirrup Cup, Bisley

 

 

For about a year we had all been thinking about the narrow victory the Cotswold Classic Car Club had over us on that dark day. It was time to take them down so arrangements were made for another game. We set the date as January 2011 as long as there was no snow. The weather was fine but due to unforseen circumstances (Gloucester playing at home that night) we had to postpone. Still, that only hightened the sense of anticipation.

 

 

There were about 30 people turn up drawn equally from both clubs. Gordon, the CCCC Chairman, again volunteered to do the scoring and organise the Skittling. Volunteers were called for and battle was ready. Glos MG OC went into an early lead and the win was on the cards for us. Both sides were enjoying the friendly banter and gentle barracking. I am sure the skittles league dont have to put up with trays being dropped at the vital moment. Then the food arrived. Charlie had done us proud with lots of chicken and burgers left over. There were no shortage of takers!

We then had a raffle in aid of the Air Ambulance with the prizes provided by CCCC. After the food our rhythm had gone. Our opponents started catching up and eventually turned in a winning performance by 16 skittles. (Made a mental note to check Gordons scoring when we play again).

 

 

 

A game of killer was then arranged which was also won by a CCCC member. He donated his winnings to the Air Ambulance .

Another really enjoyable evening with Classic car enthusiasts. Hopefully we can organise more of these events and perhaps even beat them !!
