Irish Road Bowling typically takes place each September (Half-way to St. Patty's Day)! This is a lot of fun and very easy to learn. Teams consisting of 4 players (21 and older) "bowl" a small cannonball as far as you can down a country road. Scoring is on the honor system and it's like keeping score for golf. All throws are done underhanded and team-mates move down the road ahead of you to watch where the team's ball stops. Team members take turns rolling the ball. The team with the fewest number of "rolls" at the end of the course wins!
There are 3 Divisions: Men's, Women's, and Co-Ed (2 Men + 2 Women) to compete in and there will be 3 prizes in each division. There will also be a contest for "Best Theme" Team so break out/create some fun outfits to show off!
