game result v 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.
Game result v Letchworth.
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.
Game Result v Biggleswade
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
Game Result v Riverain
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..
Game Result v Holwell
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.
