With the early inter-county fixtures cancelled, Warwickshire took a trip to Flitwick BC to play a game of four triples against Bedfordshire. The host county made hay while the sun shone, winning 89-55.

Keith Austin (Three Spires), Chris Vipond (Matrix) and Senior Vice President Nigel Hewitson had a slow start, reaching the midway point eight shots down. With four ends to play the deficit was now seven but a surge from Hewitson and co cut that down to one with two ends to play. The hosts scored a single on the penultimate end but a double saw the Bears earn a 17 all draw. Paul Brown (Sherwood Park), Martin Preedy (Lillington) and Fred Bastock (Rugby Thornfield) had a good start but were all level after six ends. Bedfordshire pulled ahead but Bastock and co fought back to lead by a shot after twelve ends. The hosts scored twelve shots in the remaining third of the game, limiting the Bears to just one shot in reply, final score 12-22.

Steve Martin (Grange), County Secretary Michael Jackson and Past President Brian Mace Humphries recovered from an early five to lead by a couple of shots after eight ends. Thirteen unanswered shots took Bedfordshire clear with four ends to play. Mace Humphries triple hit a three and single but the hosts replied with their own triple and a double, final score 26-12 to the hosts. County President Peter Vale Humphreys, Richard Pope (Bilton) and Past President Geoff Moran led by one after five ends but dropped twelve shots over the next seven ends.
