Lance Price, Alliance Captain, arranged a fun-filled afternoon on 1st September which included a tremendous meal kindly prepared by Mandy aka Mrs Price. On a pleasant afternoon a very motley crew, some of whom had remembered to come in fancy dress also enjoyed some novelty bowling, a quiz and in some cases a wee too much whisky.
On the green Brian Brown won the ‘Spider’ and was also Skip of the winning team on the day thus being showered with even more prize money. John Cummings was fined and will be reported to the Committee for parking his camel on the green.
Although the Alliance games are always played to win, it is essentially a relaxed afternoon with good camaraderie and a chance for either a reflective pint at the end of the game or a lemonade and a game of pool for the younger members.
Lance gave a little speech and told his one joke that we all thought was highly amusing…once again.
