Irish Road Bowling – Cacapon Resort State Park

10:00 am - 3:00 pm

| Free

Irish Road Bowling consists of a ball made of iron and steel that is heavy enough to pick up speed, yet small enough for any person to handle. Besides the basic rules and terms, all you do is hurl this 28 oz. sized "bowl" with an underhand motion over a 1 to 2 mile country road and see how far it goes! Scored like golf, the fewest number of shots from the start to the finish line wins. Irish Road Bowling is similar to fast pitch softball, except with a running start. It's also like bowling if you had enough room to run 10 or 15 yards. Irish Road Bowling is ideal for young athletes or seniors who are looking to enjoy a scenic walk on a country road, combined with an ancient and exciting, but not overly strenuous, sport! "Gravity is your friend" on this mostly downhill roll through the woods with rocky cliffs alongside. This shaded 1.2 mile course will be cool in the hot summer time and great for beginners. Afterward, lake swim, tennis, golf, hiking trails, horseback rides. Registration begins at 10 a.m. and bowling begins at 11 a.m. Lodge reservations 304-258-1022.
