Bowling evening, October 2019

What a great time we all had at the Olympia Bowling Centre on the sea front in Scarborough.

We met at 6.30 pm and soon checked in and changed our footwear ready for the bowling challenge.

The customary pint was needed to calm our nerves before we began the game.

The game started slowly with quite low scoring but then some of the team found the skills obtained from their earlier years. Strikes and Spares came naturally to some.

There were several funny moments, one to remember is Mike Shingler lining up on the bowling alley with a ball to hand ready to roll it down the aisle, but then somehow bowling the ball backwards towards the rest of the team sat having a pint! This happened twice but we were on our guard the second time.

Scores on the doors

Simon Ward won the game with a terrific score of 176, which was some way ahead of anyone else.

After the challenge had ended, we walked down to the Ask restaurant to enjoy a meal and a glass or two of wine.

Many thanks to Darren Kellett for organising the evening and we look forward to the next event.
