Bowls for Glasgow Games' athlete's village ?

Postby DustTown » Wed Jan 15, 2014 12:13 am

The "artist impression" video showing the athlete's village for the Glasgow Commonwealth Games has a couple interesting looking bowls !

It's at 2:18 here....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uK6eAh_T7o8

Anyone know anything about it ?

Had a little read around and looks like skate parks are mentioned quite a lot in propasals for spending legacy money. The only one I found (in a very brief search) was one in Fife called Cupar.

Interesting, I hope they've got fences all round or I can see quite a few boards ending up in the drink :shock:
History, it's just one fucking thing after another :roll:
