KC Cup Skittles Final and BBQ 2017

air ambulance certificateA good time was had by all at the final leg of the skittles despite the rather damp and windy weather. We had postponed the event from the previous day due to the forecast which actually turned out to be wrong!

Having already played 3 rounds of skittles – normal, wrong hand and single pin attempts in the village hall during the year, the final was on a traditional outdoor wooden alley and participants had one normal attempt followed by an attempt with a blindfold. The latter proved very difficult with some people throwing the ball completely off course. Points were awarded for each round and added up. The overall winner by a single point was Sue Smith who gets to keep the KC Cup for a year again, having won it 2 years ago on family games day. The prize for best score for 5 and under, a child’s set of garden skittles, was won by Henry Bailey.

There were prizes for the best on the day as well won by Jon Lawes and Rachael Lawes! No piglets were won but some pork scratchings and Percy Pig sweets accompanied a bottle of wine and a couple of beers with wild boars on the labels!

The day before we decided to run a raffle in aid of the BVI community fund which is for aid after hurricane IRMA. Thank you to everyone who donated a prize. We also split the BBQ and Skittles profit between Wiltshire Air Ambulance and the hurricane fund. £150 to the Air Ambulance and £250 to the hurricane fund.

Last chance to enter the KC Skittles competition

skittles5133365Last chance to enter the KC Skittles competition.

Sunday 11th June 10.00-13.00 in the village hall.

You do not need to be there for the whole 3 hours. It takes 10-15 minutes to complete the 3 sections with 4 chances on each. BUT if you are pushed for time some of you still have 3 scores from the Ladies Cub skittles in February which can be counted for one section of the competition and if you are really short of time you could always ‘trust to luck’(or skill!) and take just one chance for each section.

Current accumulated scores range from 16-31 but this could all change when we play 2 more sections in September, so anyone is in with a chance of winning. Come along and give it a go. Adults £4, school age children £2.

Reminder: The KC Cup Skittles Competition

You will all have had a flyer explaining how the scoring will work.

The first session for you to try and get some points will be on Sunday 26th February in the hall from 2- 4 pm.  Don’t worry if you cannot make this as I will be running a couple of more sessions later in the year.

The competition is open to all ages and there are prizes for over 12yrs, 6-11 years and 5 and under.  The play will be adjusted to allow the younger members of the village to take part.  Friends and family are welcome but the KC Cup will go to the best villager.

Entry fee – £4 for adults, £2 for school age children. Excess raised will go to Wiltshire Air Ambulance.  Please bring with you when you attend the session.

Good Luck.
