Cadets & Otters Strike It Lucky

It was a case of swapping buoyany aids for bowling balls on Saturday afternoon 24 February as a group of Gunfleet Cadets and Otters got together at Clacton Pavilion for their own Bowling Tournament.

Organised by Cadet Officer Claire the ages ranged from six to seventeen years and there was two hours of fun and laughter, plus a bit of series “skittle flattening”!

There were three teams – the “Tiddlers”, the “Middlers”, and the “Old Grappers” and each team had two games.  In the Tiddlers it was Francesca that won both games, whilst Henry took the Middlers in the first game but had to share the second game honours with Ted and Jude – a three0-way tie.  In the Old Grappers it was a game each to Harry and Tom.

Cadet Commodore Harry said “It was a really good afternoon and not only was it fun bowling but a load of us got the opportunity to meet-up and socialise outside of the sailing season.  I would like to thank Claire for arranging the event, she certainly did us proud we were all bowled-over!”
