71. Irish Road Bowling

One of the really exciting things about creating this blog has been discovering all these really cool things to do here in Syracuse. Granted, there are some days when I really struggle to diversify things…I mean, there are only so many restaurants you can eat at….However, sometimes you come across great little gems…like Irish Road Bowling.

I have got to admit, the Irish are very clever.

Irish Road Bowling, as defined by Wikipedia, is an Irish sport in which competitors attempt to take the fewest throws to propel a metal ball along a predetermined course of country roads. Again…the Irish are very clever. Click here to read the rules!

This Sunday, at Onondaga Lake Park there will be an Irish Road Bowling tournament to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day…nice weather…culture…you name it! This is something I’m really excited to go spectate.  Registration begins at 10am and is $100 per team of 4. The games will go from 11-2pm and there will be prizes awarded to the winning teams, best costume and/or decorated bowl afterwards! All proceeds will go to support Educational Programs at Onondaga Lake Park.

Tip: Drinks are permitted, however coolers are not allowed on the course.
