Men's events

Croquet and tenpin bowling

THE Southlands Men's Group had a great tenpin bowling evening at York Tenpin, Clifton Moor, on Tuesday, 14th November.

This followed a very successful snooker evening at Castle Snooker, in Tower Street, York, on 17th October, when we discovered that our snooker abilities needed a lot of improvement.

During the summer months we paid four visits to York Croquet Club, playing fun variants of croquet which were much enjoyed by the men taking part.

The first three of these outings took place on Tuesday, 27th June, on Tuesday, 18th July, and Tuesday, 1st August, when we played Croquet Pirates (no fancy dress involved) and Croquet Golf.

On the final outing, on Tuesday, 5th September, they were joined by new pastoral missioner John Bailey for an evening which included Croquet Golf and another fun variant called Bringing In The Washing. 

Earlier this year the men had outings to York Tenpin at Clifton Moor for tenpin bowling evenings, to Castle Snooker Club in Tower Street, York, for an evening of snooker, and to the Longboat, in Blossom Street, York, for breakfast.

It is hoped to arrange further outings and possibly a breakfast over the next few months.
