Coming March 2, 2014. Looking for something unique to do this weekend? Check out the 3rd Annual Irish Road Bowling event in Lawrence, Kansas. What is Irish road bowling, you may ask? Irish road bowling, AKA bullets or long bullets, is a sport that originated in Ireland where you toss an iron and steel ball (the “bowl” or “bullet”) with an underhand throw over a country road (usually 1-2 miles long) as far as possible. The goal is to reach the finish line with the fewest number of throws. Sounds like a fun way to kick off the St. Patrick’s Day month!
