fist visit to Royston for one our last games before the season ends and I
have to say how impressive the clubhouse is and on top of that the green
onto the game , It started off on a dry note and the bowls were flowing on
the greens , After 9 ends i made it that we were 1 up overall so all to
play for. The clouds started building and after a few spots of rain about
13 ends in I had a quick check and thought we were winning. With a couple
of end to go the rain then decided to fall so everyone grabbed for there
waterproofs. At the end the results were annouced and we ended up losing
63-62 in a very close but enjoyable game.

Hitchin and Biggleswade
was Still very hot against Hitchin so we played 12 ends. After 6 ends we
were leading by 5 shots and with the final end to go i made it we were up
1 shot. However getting the final result was disappointing as we lost
42-30 (Think my maths must have gone wrong or we had some disastrous last
ends. At Biggleswade the weather had subsided and it was a nice day to
play bowls, After 9 ends i think we were down by about 5 shots but
finished up by losing 73-47 (from Memory). However afterwards we
were treated to a superb meal and great hospitality (and i won first prize
in the raffle) so an enjoyable day for which Biggleswade should be congratulated.
Willian and Steeple Morden
Willian , On the hottest day of the year so far it was decided that we
would only play 12 ends. At the halfway stage we were losing by 11 shots,
I'm afraid there was no comeback this time so home advantage (?) didn't
help as we ended up losing 42-30.
Steeple Morden . On the windiest day of the outside season , again we were
losing at the halfway stage (well Actually 12 ends). We were then treated
to a lovely salad and cakes but again we couldn't comeback and lost
This years Gala Day arrived and as Mike said at the AGM, it was guaranteed
to be a sunny day after Dorothy brought the umbrellas ! and so it proved

other past bowlers from other clubs turned up. It was a pleasure to see

Wembley this year
a glorious evening for bowls we were playing in the Cairns Cup against a
strong Royston side. Two rinks at home and two away With the aggregate
score of all four games counting. NHBC home team had a slender lead at the
end of the evening and Mike Jeffreys was getting worried of losing his
100% record , as evidently we have never won a game in this. However
when the Carrier pigeon arrived it appears that Royston had won the home
game by a bigger margin, so Mike's record was safe.
we were treated to a lovely meal for which the ladies should be
congratulated. Also special thanks To Mike and Tricia who left there
holiday resort at 0700 to ensure everything was ready for the evening.
what a game this was. After about 4-5 ends we were losing 13-0,9-0,9-2 and
winning 7-5 on the last rink Only what i can remember so may not be
strictly accurate. So 27 shots down. I'm not sure if the sun came out or
went in but somehow we turned it round and finished up winning the match
77-73 so what a comeback. Langford laid on an impressive spread afterwards
and should be thanked for there hospitality.
despite a greyish start we ended up having some lovely weather for the
evening. A big thanks to Basil for organising. The raffle became the
Malcolm and Ted road show with them both winning 3 or 4 times. However the
winner was the hospice as we raised £110. Thanks for all the food, raffle
prizes and your support.
