On the bowling green


The late afternoon sun casts a long shadow from bowler John Thomas at the Woodland Park Lawn Bowling Club as he aims for a close shot at the white ball in the distance, called a "jack" or "kitty." The bowler who gets his ball (called a "bowl") closest to the "jack" wins the most points. The closely trimmed surface, called a bowling green, compares to a golf putting green. The sport has been traced back to the 13th century and is played in more than 40 countries. Woodland Park Lawn Bowling Club meets on Wednesdays. The local forecast calls for more beautiful, shadow-inducing weather this week.
