Our skittles match last Monday against Midsomer Norton and Radstock at The Tuckers Grave inn, Faulkland turned out to be a very close run thing with Midsomer Norton ending up winning in the end by just 2 points.
Good fun seemed to be had by all, and at least we had the consolation that our very own Clive “Barnes Wallis” Harland was the highest scorer!
A few weeks ago the Devizes Rotary Skittles Team played their first game in this season’s District 1200 Skittles Knock-Out Cup competition. We were again playing Westbury, who beat us in the first round of the competition last year, so it was with a little trepidation (at least on my part!) that we took to the skittles alley at the Cross Keys in Rowde for the re-match.
It was a close run thing, but in the end we managed to sneak over the line first. Thanks to Westbury for a very enjoyable evening, and who knows, perhaps we’ll meet again in next year’s competition!
Our next Skittles match in the District 1200 Skittles Plate Competition will be as follows:
Date: Thursday 16th Febriary
Time: 7pm – 9pm
Place: Spencer Sport and Social Club
Address: Beanacre Road, Melksham, SN12 8AG
Tel : 01225 702216
Please let me know if you can play.
Last Thursday evening the Devizes Rotary Club hosted the first match of the District 1200 knock-out cup against Westbury at the Crown and … we got knocked out!
It was pretty even throughout and in fact there were only 2 points in it going into the final leg, but that increased to 8 points in the end so Westbury ended up worthy winners. However the good news for Devizes is that because we went out in the first round we will be entered into the plate competition, so we live to fight another day .. 🙂
On 8th March we played the skittles team from the Trowbridge Wessex Mead Rotary Club at the Crown in Devizes. Although we lost the match, a great time was had by all.
Thanks to Ann from the TWM club for supplying most of the following ‘photos – for some reason the ones I took on my ‘phone were pretty blurred!
