VALENTINES NIGHT GOES DOWN A STORM
 
Local singer Poppy Francis entertained a full club house on 16th February for the annual valentines celebration. A superb selection of hit songs from the last four decades were well received by the audience a number of whom tripped the light fantastic on the dance floor.
The ticket price for this event included  nibbles and one free drink, a big thanks as ever to the bar staff and the people who set out the club house and provided the nibbles etc. All being well hopefully Poppy will return to entertain us again during next winters social events.

FOUR CLUB CALLENGE 
 

On Saturday 2nd February sixteen Biggleswade Town men took part in the annual 'four club challenge' along with bowlers from Langford, Henlow and St. Andrews. As we were the current holders of the shield everyone was keen to retain the trophy. Following a very close fought game the result was a win by Henlow Park.........congratulations to them, we will endeavour to regain the shield next year. A big thank you to Bedford Borough for hosting the match, and well done to the players from all four clubs for the part they played in a fine afteroons bowling.........

Eagle Travel League
 
Game week eight.............The first game in the 'second half 'of the competition............. Chris, Denis, Brian and Martin stepped out onto the green on 2nd February against Bedford Park hoping to continue the good form that our players have shown in the Eagle Travel League during the first half of the season, The first end was all set up nicely with four Biggleswade woods round the jack until the last wood of the end by the Bedford skip crept in to sit right next to the jack, the next three ends saw our boys play some good woods picking up five shots, but by the fifth end the score sat at just 6-5 in our favor. That then signaled a spell of domination by our boys, by end 15 Bedford were still sat on 5 shots with our total reaching 22. The final score of 23 to 8 was well deserved by our quartet. At the same time as our game was taking place table topping Sharnbrook were finding it hard going against Langford, with our close neighbours inflicting the first defeat of the season on the team from Sharnbrook, those two results have seen us leapfrog both Sharnbrook and Ampthill to sit top of division two on shot difference..................a well deserved position for our boys considering the performances they have all put in so far this season,,,,,,,,,it will be a big ask to stay top but lets celebrate being there while we can   
 
 Our next game is on 23rd February against Langford
