It’s an ancient rivalry going back to the Viking age – and a great way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day! Put a team together (4-persons) and meet us on the field of battle (Buckman Field) for our urban version of Irish Road Bowling (using the same cannonball equipment). We call it Nordic Urban Track Bowling (aka NUT Bowling), ‘cuz we made it up! All ages welcome rain or shine. Pick a side: are you a fearsome Viking or a darling Leprechaun?
