New Farm Bowls paddleSun 28 Jun 09 ()
Join us for a Sunday paddle to New Farm, followed by barefoot bowls at New Farm bowls club. We will paddle in seakayaks to Merthyr bowls club, load the boats on to the trailer (which Ernst will drive up) and then walk to New Farm bowls. Someone will drive the trailer back while the others return to the University by citycat.

It is possible to only go bowling (i.e. no paddling), but you need to register with the organisers for this as well.
