Club Meeting – Slot Car Racing

The Club’s fellowship month continued this evening with a visit to the Wolverhampton Scalextric & Slot Car Club.

Based in the grounds of the Aldersley Stadium and with two tracks it offers adults and children of all abilities the opportunity to build and race slot cars. Its amazing how far the cars have come since the time when most of us were playing with Scalextrix tracks at home and it is now a competitive sport with intentional teams visiting the Wolverhampton Club to race.

Needless to say that the members of the Tettenhall Club will not be posing a serious challenge on the international stage in the near future but the racing did make for fun night with John Margetts crowned Club Scalextrix champion.

Congratulations to the podium finishers:

1. John Margetts
2. Ken Whalley
3. John Francis

Club Meeting – Bowls Competition

It’s August and for the Tettenhall Club that means its Fellowship month – when our regular monthly meetings are suspended in favour of social events. These events offer a further opportunity for members to build on the friendships which are such an important part of Rotary.

This first fellowship meeting of the year saw the staging of the Club’s Crown Green Bowls competition at the Summer House pub in Wolverhampton.

The competition took the form of a doubles competition this year but despite that and the attempt to level the playing field by matching last years champion Greg Instone with one of the Club’s worst players Greg still charged his way through to regain the Club title for further year in what we hope will bode well for the Club in District competitions.
