EBL DINNER DANCE AND PRESENTATIONS

A large group of bowlers and their families attended the annual east beds league dinner dance at the Weatherly Centre in Biggleswade on the 18th January, this is where all the winners and runners up of the East Beds League competitions are presented with their trophies. 2019 was another successful year for B.T.B.C. 

Our men's A team collected the runners up plaque for division two. The ladies A team were presented with two runners up plaques, one for division one and the other for the knockout cup. Top prize in the name of our club was presented to our Ladies C team as winners of the knockout cup.

Well done to all the players involved with those teams, another proud night for our club...……

Eagle Travel League

With a number of our squad away on a short tour of the south coast it was left to Frank. Denis (playing his first game this season due to injury), John and Danny to line up against the Borough A team. Things could not have started better for out guys and after four ends we were 5-0 up, the good play continued and when the coffee beak was called at 11 ends our lads had stretched the lead to 11-4, a funny feeling for us as things generally been different to that so far this season. After the break a bit of a disaster saw us drop a five to make it 11-9, still we could recover from that couldn't we? some decent play by both teams took the score to 13 all with one end to play, it would be a last end shoot out then...…..unfortunately for our quartet it was not to be.....Borough picking up a single to take the game by one shot, 13-14

our team will battle on though, this had given them all the belief that we will get a victory before the season ends...…..
