Oregon Sports Action
A huge thanks to Oregon Sports Action in supporting PLBC's recent purchase of lawn bowls for juniors!
With excellent instructors, equipment, and a bar, Evergreen Curling Club recently helped over a dozen PLBC/PPC members and friends spend a fun and humbling afternoon.
In groups of 4 or 5, each instructor patiently educated us on some of the basic aspects of curling:
how to deliver the stone (challenging), sweeping offensively (tiring), sweeping defensively (satisfying).
We topped off the afternoon with some 3 end games and a few beers to seal the deal.
Clearly the Scots weren't too creative when developing new sports. The object of the game, terminology, and scoring for curling are the same as lawn bowls.
We will return the favor of instruction and play to the curlers on June 3rd.
