It was a good evening tonight with a crowd of youngsters coming from Gunns. The weather was ideal and everyone had a very enjoyable evening. The food supplied by Gunns was their usual high standard.

Thursday 11th May

A very enjoyable evening at Russell Park, Bedford, saw Great Barford narrowly defeat the home side by just a few points. It was particularly frustrating for Kev, David and Fred to be pulled back to a 20-20 draw after having taken a substantial lead at the beginning of the game, but that’s bowls! Russell Park is the most beautiful setting on a spring evening and it was a pleasure to play there.

Players signed up, as players and reserves,  for an away game at Russell Park are:

Joe Lound-Keast
Kev Stephenson
Keith Blaxill
Jennie Oyston
Fred Merrill
Des Cook
Steve Lyon
Maz Lyon
Elaine Lound-Keast
John Griffiths
David Samme
Mike Whitlock

Thursday 4th May

Home fixture against Bedford Priory. Very cold weather so we played 14 ends, losing 49-48. Very enjoyable nevertheless, the opposition being very complimentary about the state of the green. So well done to Bill Quince and all his helpers.
