Turf Bowling to open today

May 07, 2003

The Hagerstown Turf Bowling season will open today at Pangborn Park, if weather permits.

The object of turf bowling is to roll 3-pound grapefruit-sized balls down a 90-foot lane and have one of the balls come as close as possible to a smaller ball called a jack. The jack, about 2 1/2 inches in diameter, is rolled down the lane before the game begins. The team that rolls a ball closest to the jack scores a point. The first team to score 21 points wins the match.

Anyone interested in this open-air form of bowling may contact Thelma Myers, president of the Hagerstown Turn Bowling League, at 301-739-4469.
