Hello 2019

Well another year is upon us so the web site has been cleaned down ready for this years events. What's to come ? (See Below)

 

2nd Social Evening Tuesday 14th May 

 

We Played Target Bowls which seemed to go down well. There were 12 teams consisting of 9 trebles and 3 pairs. We had a great evenings bowling with a Pair consisting of Paul Riseborough and Chin Tory winning the event with 107 points. The lowest placed team got 64 points and were awarded a wooden spoon each.

 

5th game result v Sandy

 

Sandy asked for an extra rink so we ended up with 5 triples. This time we were not to far behind at tea 42-49 and the first win of the season looked possible. It went to the final couple of ends in two games when we lost by 3 on each. One swing the other way , we might have won ! Anyway an enjoyable afternoon with the final score being 80-86.

 

4th Game result v Letchworth.

 

On a lovely sunny afternoon Letchworth led at tea by 21 Points (28-49). Unfortunately the tea didn't do us any good and we ended up losing 48-82.

 

3rd Game Result v Biggleswade

 

On the cold afternoon of Saturday we played Biggleswade and due to the coldness the game was reduced to 15 ends. Unfortunately we ended up losing. Final score Biggleswade 66 NHBC 33

 

2nd Game Result v Riverain

 

We were only 4 shots adrift after 11 ends when we stopped for tea and after it went wrong. However an enjoyable afternoon and Riverain made us feel very welcome. Final score Riverain 75 NHBC 57..

 

1st Game Result v Holwell

 

On a Nice sunny afternoon we played our first game of the season and narrowly lost. We were a player short due to a misunderstanding and won on 3 of the 4 rinks but the loss of a player meant a narrow defeat for the team.
