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.


Pub Olympics – Saturday 21st January

Pub Olympics – Saturday 21st January

Despite the cold weather there was a record turnout for the pub olympics of 30 adults and 12 day old Miles who slept through all the mayhem!

Five traditional pub games (skittles, dominoes, shove ha’penny, darts and table skittles) were arranged around the hall and there was just enough room for team tables in the centre. Everyone should have played each game – this worked in most cases but I can assure you that trying to control a room of 30 adults under the influence is a lot harder than a class full of children!

The winning team was the Green team otherwise known as ‘Trump Towers’! but only by a single point (is this reminiscent of the US election?) The ‘yellow perils’ came 4th out of 5 teams despite having 3 of the best scores out of the 5 games – I don’t know what the other team members were up to! or perhaps they didn’t put their joker on the right game. However I think they all enjoyed themselves as did everyone else.

A profit of £110 was made and will go towards the general upkeep of the village hall.

Thank you to all who turned up.
