Coopers Rock Tag Team

April 30, 2022

Located near Morgantown and Cheat Lake, Coopers Rock State Forest offers Irish Road Bowling a beautiful Spring setting for a family fun event. The park closes the course to traffic during the event, a rarity in this game. In years past, bowlers have traveled from as far as Chestertown MD and Dallas TX to compete.

Typically, team road bowling events are for teams of 4. Straying from tradition, the event at Coopers Rock State Forest will again be the site of a doubles match. Join forces with your favorite friend, relative, coworker, or even pay a seasoned bowler to be your partner.  This year’s winners will receive their own Championship Belts!  Not to mention the customary bragging rights that come with every victory. 

Registration at 12:00. Bowling begins at 1:00
