Surrey Branch’s Games Night with the Velocette Owners Club

Surrey Branch’s Games Night with the Velocette Owners Club

 

The Surrey branch hosted at our club room the Stepping Stones on 11 January 2017, the Surrey branch of the Velocette Owners Club for another one of our games nights. We had previously had a games night at their VOC’s former club room in Great Bookham, so we decided to arrange another event at the Stepping Stones. There were 16 members from the VOC and 13 members from the Surrey branch attended this very friendly and social event. There were five different games that were arranged around the room for both sets of members to compete in. These games consisted of the following activities

 

Jenga, Shove Halfpenny, Football Game, Darts, and Bagatell.

 

Mike Petryszyn won some the darts matches, and Ken Rawlinson and Henry Dulate and Phil Hamann won some of the football games. Graham Holcombe and Oscar Frieslaar won the Jenga game, much to the delight of the SNOC members who watched the proceedings with eager anticipation and when the Jenga bricks crashed to the floor a huge roar of approval reverberated around the room.  The football game came from Ken Rawlinson as I managed to get it into the back of my estate car. Ken also provided the Shove Halfpenny, Dave Gibson provided Jenga and Dave Catt the chairman of the SVOC provided the Bagatell game, which did take some explaining as to how it was meant to be played.

 

The Surrey section (SNOC) won again at 10 games to 7 and we once more retained the trophy for another of these events and the trophy was accepted by our chairman Mike Petryszyn on behalf of the SNOC. This trophy was fabricated by our very own painter and sculptor extraordinaire Dave Gibson.

 

The Surrey branch also provided a really large and very enjoyable buffet that was supplied by the Stepping Stones publican, for all those attended this event, and there was so much to eat that there was some left over at the finish.  The event concluded at 9.30am and then after the trophy presentation and the prize giving every one then finished off some of the food, and collected either chocolates or the cans of beer that Dave Gibson so thoughtfully brought along for all those that had won on the games night.

 

It was very an entertaining night and all those that attended enjoyed the very welcoming atmosphere and also to be able to discuss motorcycles from both marquee and also the very warm friendship that exists between members both of the different makes of bike clubs. Dave Catt said that eight of his members will be attending our annual dinner event on the 28 January 2017 at the Coulsdon Manor Hotel.
