Irish Road Bowling – Preston County Buckwheat Festival

12:30 pm - 5:00 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! September 30, Preston County Buckwheat Festival, Kingwood, WV www.buckwheatfest.com Sunday 1:00 p.m. The WVIRB Association “Northern Wing” sponsors a terrific tournament with the best prize anywhere, a Buckwheat Pancake Breakfast for the winners. Loft a corner on Pleasantdale and Greens Run Road, one of the best WVIRBA road courses in WV. Road Master Mark Wilt Cell: (304) 698-6817
