Blackwater Falls, Team
June 18, 2022
Many say this is the best double header weekend of the season! This course has quickly become a favorite of veteran and new bowlers alike. In 2018, the WV State Championships and the North American Regional Finals were hosted here. With the close proximity to Canaan Valley, this is the perfect weekend to spend in the area taking in the sights and enjoying 2 days of quality Irish Road Bowling.
The rare loop course (finish where you start) offers smooth blacktop, a corner for lofting, sun, shade, a horseshoe turn, and long sweeping downhill turns that when bowled just right, could let your bowl roll out of site! During the women’s exhibition match at the North American finals in 2018, the 2017 WV Women’s Champion recorded a shot of 323 yards with a perfectly place bowl. So, get ready for some big bowls, a little bit of luck, and a lot of fun!
Registration begins at 12:30. Bowling begins at 1:30
