Tom Shanley scors 8 again, but will it be enough?

The inter-services annual skittles match was held at the Dartmouth Yacht Club on Thursday 7 March. There were 10 teams in all drawn from RNLI volunteers from the Dart lifeboat crew, the fundraising team and the Visitor Centre. The NCI volunteers from Froward Point contributed 2 teams as did the Dartmouth Coastguard volunteers, past and present. The "Thin blue line" represented the police and "Flaming Fire" were drawn from the retained volunteers at Dartmouth Fire Station.
At the end of the first round the Dart lifeboat team were in 1st place, with Flaming Fire close behind. Lynn and Rob Clements had prepared an excellent meal for the half time break and Iain Simons worked hard keeping the scores all evening.
The final positions after round two were; RNLI Visitor Centre in 3rd place. The lifeboat crew were just in 2nd place by one point, despite Tom Shanley taking the prize for scoring 8 in both rounds. And the winners were......Flaming Fire!
£425 was raised by a well supported and thoroughly enjoyable evening.
