Train for Irish Bowling in Liverpool

Prepare for Central New York's inaugural Irish Road Bowling Tournament

The final training session will be held at noon Sunday February 28 at the Griffin Visitor Center in the Wegmans Landing section of Onondaga Lake Park, Liverpool.

During the free session folks will learn how to road bowl, practice for the upcoming event and be able register a team to participate in the March 14 tournament.

In a sport that's part golf, part bocce and part bowling, four-person teams will "bowl" a small 28-ounce cannonball underhanded along the two-mile course on the Park's Shoreline Walking Trail. The team that completes the course with least amount of rolls wins. The winning team in each of the three categories (four-man, four-woman, co-ed) will receive $200 cash and paid entry into next year's Irish Road Bowling Tournament.

Only 60 teams will be able to play and slots are filling in quickly. The entry fee is $100 per team and includes a commemorative t-shirt, a one year membership to the Friends of Historic Onondaga Lake and complimentary food and non-alcoholic beverages at the Barking Gull awards ceremony for each individual. Proceeds from the event will support educational and recreational programs at Onondaga Lake Park.
