Milverton Venturers’ Investment Club social evening

On Friday 8 March the Milverton Venturers’ Investment Club enjoyed one of their quarterly social events with a bowling evening at the New Inn, Halse. Brimming with confidence after some recent (and rather unusual) winning stock picks such as Nvidia, the evening was eagerly anticipated.

The competition was fierce with team captains, Stephen Jones and Tim Bidlake-Corser rallying their respective teams with alcohol (no encouragement needed) and the tactics they would employ. Battle commenced with Stephen’s team selection being rather more astute than his stock selection, achieving a top score after 4 rounds of 315 vs 244.

Individuals of note were Chris Mann who scored 32 and Sally Mears, 29. The New Inn produced an excellent meal and much fun was had by all. Special thanks must go to David Fletcher’s grandson and friend, Cassius and Jack who tirelessly picked up skittles (and avoided many errant bowls) all evening. Thanks also to Georgina Banton who organised the event.
