Exeter Branch enjoy a Skittles and Supper evening at the New Inn Pub, Broadclyst
Exeter Branch held a non-ringing social on Friday 12th October which involved a Skittles and Supper evening at the New Inn Pub on the outskirts of Broadclyst. This was rescheduled from March when we had to cancel at short notice due to the heavy snow!
There was an even number of girls and boys leading to a natural split for the two teams. After 6 rounds the girls' team scored a total of 352 points and the boys' team scored a total of 382 points – a win of 31 points to the boys!
Lucy, Susan and David all managed to knock 9 pins down with at least one spare, leading Susan to get the highest single score of 11 for the girls' team and David get the highest single score of 17 for the boys' team – looking forward to seeing a score of 27 next year! After 6 rounds of skittles we had a single round of killer, with Dick being the last person standing after several very skilful bowls.
Half way through the evening we paused for supper, which included a very tasty Stilton and Walnut tart or cold meat platter with ample side dishes to ensure a filling meal. Our thanks go to the staff at the New Inn Pub for allowing us to use the skittles alley and for making us all feel very welcome.
