Alternative Sports Club goes Lawn Bowling!

Meeting number three took place at the Richmond Hill lawn bowling club, this time there were 10 kids that showed up, and the meeting went from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Once we were all ready, everyone was taught by the senior members of the Lawn Bowling club how to lawn bowl. The sport is not very much like bowling itself, but very similar the backyard game boche, the only difference is that you have to curve the balls with a weight difference that the balls have on either side. There were two groups both with two opposing teams and we played several rounds with it being quite the challenge at times. We played two games, which had about ten rounds in them. Once we were done we had a few snacks and chatted, then headed home.
