WV Irish Road Bowling

1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

| $5.00

WV Irish Road Bowling is a sport that has been played in West Virginia since 1995, but the roots go farther back to the American Civil War when soldiers from Ireland played. The Irish have been playing the sport since the 1600s. About Irish Road Bowling consists of a ball made out 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! Team events are played with teams of 3 or 4 bowlers. Scored like golf, the fewest number of shots from the start to the finish line wins. Registration: 12:30 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. Cost: $5 Contact Stephen Wallington (KSF Road Master) 304-638-3224 for more information.
