The annual Skittles match between Eling Manor and Mayflower Lodge took place on the 24th of November at Kings Court Masonic Centre, Chandler's Ford. Both Lodges were well supported and after some drinks at the bar the evening's match soon started. After first round of the skittles there was a break in proceedings for the buffet from Charles. The food that was supplied was excellent with some unusual items you would not normally see in a buffet. 

One of the more notable parts of the evening was the presence of children who were helping with the match by returning the balls and standing the skittles up at the end of each persons go. It was great to see them contribute to the evening. They were thanked by the organisers and a collection was made for them and presented at the end of the evening.

There was also a raffle held during the evening raising £244 which was divided equally between the Lodges

At the end of the evening, after the scores were added up by the treasurer of Eling Manor the result was declared and the Peter Restorick Skittles Trophy was once again presented Eling Manor. The wooden spoon was also presented to Mayflower Lodge for coming second. Both Masters of expressed their thanks for all who attended and looked forward to the re-match next year.
