Skittles Evening 21 November 2014
The annual Residents Association skittles evening was even more popular this year, not quite standing room only but both floors of the village hall were needed to accommodate the revellers. In the afternoon the back room boys and girls swung into action: While David Rodgers and crew (note the nautical reference, David) assembled the flat pack alley on the upper floor, down in the kitchen Margaret Dascalopoulos and the creative caterers prepared a magnificent buffet supper. Nigel Else and Alan Morse set up the bar to the accompaniment of clinking bottles while Father Christmas John Letheren arrived minus presents but with lists and scorecards ready to tally the fall of skittles and, as a finale, announce the victor (sadly not me).
The magic hour arrived, as did the guests, greeted by Andy and Cherry Collins checking entry tickets and selling raffle tickets, the trickle passing through the door became a flood before ebbing to nothing, a bearded figure called the first name from the back of the hall and the game began. Wooden balls rumbled along the plywood alley and crashed against skittles which spun and clacked against each other clearing the way to victory or, alas for some, just the depressing thud of ball hitting backstop without knocking down a single pin, but whether to celebrate or commiserate a visit to Alan and Nigel's corner of joy would make you feel better.
Who cares about the fall of the skittles when one has good company and good food, and what food! No ploughman's of stale bread, Tesco value cheddar and squidgy pickled onions but a fantastic fanfare of cheeses and breads, irresistible delicacies and sweet things to finish. Forget the calories and savour the taste; eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we diet. What a perfect excuse for a less than perfect skittles score. “The excess weight around my midriff affected my balance and what should have been a wipe out became a wash out. My failures is down to Margaret and her team, the food was just too tempting.”
Finally, all the balls had been rolled, the last skittle felled and John's mathematical mind had processed the scores. Sheila Scales was announced the worthy winner, our illustrious chairman Lynn Boyns presented the champagne prize, Andy Collins spun the raffle box, more prizes were won (or not), and the evening was over. Alas, I was one of the nots but as a consolation prize was allowed to write this piece, so while other winners raise their glasses to drink their winnings I pound the keys. However, there is a silver lining for I've promised myself a glass of my own commiseration wine when I finish... NOW.
