Lawn bowls for Engineers without Borders

Posted on 20 Apr 2009 | 0 comments

A lovely sunny afternoon playing lawn bowls and 2 out of 5 manage to get injured…!

Pete invited us to come bowling at the Mosman Park Bowling Club as they were raising money for the Engineers without Borders. Jude had never bowled before and we thought it would be fun to try. It’s a great location too, with amazing views over the river below.

We ended up playing with 5: Lee, Mark, Kathryn, Jon and me. The girls played the guys and won – twice. We gave them all the options to win, but they just didn’t take them 😉

the balls, it's a bit like 'boche' (jeux de boules) for grown-ups as the weight in the balls is not evenly distributed...
