Solihull vs Stratford Skittles

skittlesAfter extensive research into available venues we have now booked the skittles alley at the Masons Arms, Welford Rd, Long Marston, Stratford-upon-Avon CV37 8RG, from 7:30 pm until about 10pm on Wednesday 24th August. Where possible we may be able to help organise car sharing for those wishing to do so.

Food will be provided and the cost will be about £10.00 per head for a mixed buffet and a member of the pub staff to act as “stacker” during our match. If you have special dietary requirements, please let us know.

This presents an excellent opportunity to meet our friends from Solihull Group as well as some from Stratford that  you may not see very often.

Please support us in this and our other ventures this year. The interest shown in such events will help shape our future Social Events calendars and enable us to provide events of interest to a wide range of Stratford members. We are essentially a “training” organisation but we do want an active and interesting social content for the benefit of our existing members.
