For the first time in recent memory, the Laguna Beach Lawn Bowling Club marched in Laguna Beach's 53rd Annual Patriots Day Parade. We were #78 towards the back of the parade, but about 20 spirited bowlers represented the club! A good start I suppose for the largest lawn bowling club in the United States (currently 252 members). 10%. Eh...
Anyway, people were genuinely interested in what a bowl was. Ginger Hatfield brought hers and the parade onlookers were able to hold her bowl when there was a lull in the marching.
Marching? Well actually it was more like walking. However, when the mood hit, we did "1,2,3 bowl" drills and "we're 2 up" drills. We looked good out there in our blue and whites, whites, and dolphin shirts!
A hearty "Well Done" to those who participated. (We saw quite a few bowlers attending the parade as we marched. Maybe next year they can join us!)
Just show up. Pizza served following the game.
