Road Bowling

Road Bowling is played with a 28 oz. (793.8 grams) solid iron bowl with a circumference of approximately 18 centimetres. Contestants match their individual skills in throwing the bowl with optimum speed, controlled delivery, and international accuracy along a carefully considered and tactically selected path over a predetermined course distance of normal roadway. The winner is the player to reach the finishing line in the least number of throws or shots.
