I believe in Lawn Bowling. This is a sport that

a person can have a very good time playing.

I remember when I was quite young maybe 4

years old, my mother took me and older sister to Santa Monica, CA. to show us where she first came to California. We went by a park where men dressed in white were on a field. One approached to talk to us and told us what they were doing. Well it played well with me and since then (age 4) I wanted to try. Finally at age 47 that day came. In the local paper was an artical, upon calling I was invited and have been a proud member of the Hermosa Beach Lawn Bowling Club. The game is a cross between chess, pool, and bachi, more of a challenge than meets the eye. You never know the outcome until the last bowl is delivered. Anything can happen. So if you like to laugh, have fun, meet new people, look up lawn bowling and perpare to be in good form.
