No Wembley this year

 

On 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.

 

Afterwards 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.

 

Report Langford Away

 

Well 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.

 

 

Hospice evening.

Well 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.
