RIGHT UP OUR ALLEY - £350 RAISED FOR CHERNOBYL CHILDREN


By Ian Maddock - Posted on 23 July 2012

A fun night was had at The Fox Inn on Friday 20th July, 2012 where 21 teams of 4 competed in a two round skittles competition. The eventual winner of the team competition was a Rotary / Friends team comprising Alan and Sue Stevens plus their friends Kevin and Vicky Portman. They managed a team combined score of 62 points, beating their nearest rivals by a margin of 3 points. The highest male scorers of the two rounds were Paul Collacott and Kevin Portman with a total of 20 points each. In a playoff Kevin Portman managed to become the overall champion For the ladies highest score there was only one winner Jacqui Ward with an outstanding 20 points total. Sue Stevens was a close second with 18 points. Food was served by The Fox staff throughout the team competition and included curry, lasagne, salad, crusty bread and chips. A knockout competition followed the team competition with a £2 entry fee. the rules being one bowl per go if you hit the skittle you stay in, if you miss the skittle you are out, this went over five rounds until an eventual winner emerged this being Sue of the Cox 2 Team competing with Neal Smith of The Chernobiles Team for the title. Just as a final piece of fun a bottle of whiskey (Jamieson) was placed on the skittle alley and people were invited to throw their one pound coins at the bottle with the closest to the bottle taking the prize. All in all a great evening was had by everyone present and in the region of £350 was raised to support The Chernobyl Children during their visit to Kinver this summer. A big thank you to everyone who attended the skittle evening for both making a great atmosphere and also their part in raising the much needed funds to support The Children of Chernobyl’s visit to Kinver. John Gillett, Chairman, International Committee
