This evening, my theme is Lawn bowls   which has a very ancient pedigree, possibly dating back to ancient Rome, Greece and Egypt. The game is played outdoors and requires participants to roll balls (5 inches or 13cm in diameter) called bowls or woods over a flat lawn. Object is to get as many balls as possible nearest a target, which is a smaller ball called the jack.

Lawn Bowls is popular in Scotland with participants tending to be of mature years. Most communities have greens.

Elsewhere today I have:

  • Arranged a one day mini-coach tour to Loch Ness and the Highlands for two groups of visitors to Glasgow.
  • Arranged Highland Dress (kilt) hire in Inverness for a group of gentlemen on an upcoming small group tour.
  • Posted information on Madden family history to my separate Glasgow Ancestry blog.

Weather today in Glasgow has been dry and relatively warm.
