View Original Notice ? Long Beach lawn bowling opens greens to public with open house

The Long Beach Lawn Bowling Club will host an open house Saturday, May 7, at 1109 Federation Dr. at Recreation Park.

Long Beach’s event is part of a nationwide lawn bowling open house. It will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

There will be free lessons from certified instructors. All of the equipment is provided.

In a release, the club says lawn bowling is suitable for all ages and is a great social and outdoor activity, requiring strategy and finesse. Currently, there are more than 100 members of the club.

The premise of the game is simple — roll a ball as close to the target ball as possible. One complication, among others —the ball is biased, or unbalanced.

Those attending the open house should wear flat-soled shoes. The group’s website is www.longbeachlbc.com.
