Keele spillen zu Lëtzebuerg mat d’donkel Bloen!!!

Good fun was had by members of the Cambridge and Oxford Societies at the keelen (“jeu de quilles”) event last Sunday afternoon in the traditional brasserie setting of the Bereler Stuff, together with some tasty tapas in keeping with the “multi-kulti” mixité of Luxembourg.
It was rather a close call in the end, with the “Lenke-Bauers” team winning overall, following a tiebreaker knockout round against the “Schicki-Mickis”, and with both the “Mega-Flotters” and “Tipp-Toppers” not so far behind.



Thanks to everyone who came along!  It won’t be long before we have calls to organise another similar event!!
