New White Bull Skittles Evening; 14 January 2014
A very enjoyable evening of Long Alley Skittles was had at The New White Bull, Giltbrook, with a team from Blue Monkey, Nottingham CAMRA and The New White Bull “A” and “B” teams taking part and fighting it out for The Bill Thorley 5’s trophy. We can report that despite some sneaky training prior to the matches taking place, we found ourselves competing with Blue Monkey for the wooden spoon, and if it wasn’t for the loan of Maureen from the Blue Monkey camp, our star player with much natural talent (some say she’s banned from the coconut shy at Goose Fair!), we dare say that Nottingham CAMRA would have come last! The eventual winners were the pub’s “A” team. However, it’s the taking part that counts and we would like to express our thanks to all teams for a most memorable evening, and despite a cloud of uncertainty hanging over the future of this community pub, spirits were high (as well as our drinking glasses).
