+ Bowl for the gold
The Sarasota Lawn Bowling Club is hosting Canada and Scotland’s national lawn bowling teams Sunday, Feb. 23, through Friday, Feb. 28. The two medal-hopeful teams have been using the venue as their training camp for the 2014 Commonwealth Games, which take place in July in Glasgow, Scotland. After the camp, each country will choose five men and five women to represent their respective countries during the games. The public may watch the teams practice. Hosting the international teams helps bring the Sarasota Lawn Bowling Club closer to its goal of hosting the 2016 U.S. Open.
