9-Pin Skittles against Brand Green/Pauntley
Saturday 20th April at Brand Green Village Hall. A great evening was had on Saturday at the Brand Green Village Hall for our regular (twice a year) friendly 9-pin skittles match. Both teams were well supported with 12 players – we even gave one of our players to Brand Green to even up the numbers! Turned out we gave them one of our better players! Despite fighting hard to the end, I think we were ‘weighed down’ by the excellent buffet laid on in-between frames 3 and 4. Thanks to Anne and all of her helpers for a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Final scores were Brand Green/Pauntley 357, Upleadon 344 (not quite as per the scoreboard). Let’s see if we can do better come the Autumn for the return match!
Indian Supper Evening
Saturday March 30th, 2019. A wonderful evening was had by those who joined us for wonderful evening of Indian food and sublime Indian music. A variety of starters (including vegetable samosas, vegetable pakoras, chicken tikka, onion bhajis, poppadoms and accompaniments) started the evening off, with main meals following shortly afterwards (chicken tikka balti, chicken tikka mosala, lamb saagwala, vegetable korma, bombay aloo and pilau rice). The meal was rounded off with black forest gateaux or mini magnum ice creams, with plenty of food for all. We look forward to seeing you at our next food event.
Mike’s Fun Pop Quiz
Saturday March 9th, 2019. Mike’s Fun Pop Quiz returned to the Upleadon Village Hall for the 6th year running. Some of the usual teams couldn’t make it, but we still had 10 teams out and they all seemed to enjoy themselves. Again we had a tie for 1st place which made an exciting finish with a tiebreak question. We made an excellent £308 for the hall.
