Ever played barefoot lawn bowls?

Bowls is an ancient sport. It is known to have been played in the 13th century, but it may have begun even before that. It is most frequently played out of doors on a carefully levelled, rectangular, manicured lawn. It is sometimes also played indoors on a synthetic surface.
Very simply put, a small white ball, called a ‘jack’ or ‘kitty’ is rolled to one end of the green and a mat is placed opposite to it at the other. The players are divided into two ‘sides’, which may be ‘singles’, ‘doubles’, or ‘triples’ or ‘fours’. Members of these sides take it in turn to roll the bowls, the object being to get as close as possible to the jack. These bowls, also called ‘woods’ [from previous times when they were made of wood] are not symmetrical but ‘biased’ on one side, so that they roll in a curve. This bias is taken into account by skilled bowlers, who use it to curve around other bowls and get in closer to the jack.
There are various ways of deciding the outcome; it may be when a singles player reaches a specified number of shots, such as 21 or 25. It can also be decided when one side has a higher score after a specified number of ‘ends’.
There are a number of other rules for serious bowls that don’t apply for barefoot bowls.
Bowls is a highly skilled game of accuracy and judgement and can be played by people of all ages. Difficult as it is to imagine, some vision impaired bowlers are up there in the top league, their other senses intensified to make up for their lack of sight.
For these players bowls is serious but highly enjoyable.
Barefoot bowls is another form of this game. This is intended for pure fun and slots in beautifully with barbecues and barefoot bowling parties, corporate team building, and all kinds of informal social gatherings.
Some clubs have an extra green just for the barefoot fun lovers, and others allot a certain time for them. Many of these clubs cater for these social activities, and can include barbecues and live or canned music as well as catering facilities.
The rules governing barefoot bowls are simpler than those of serious competition bowls. Here are a few rules that you will find in most clubs that you visit.
• Within the boundaries of the rink is where your bowls must stay. If they go out, or go past the jack and into the ditch, they are removed to the ‘bank’.
• The other bowls are scored according to how close they come to the jack.
• Each side gets a turn to bowl alternately.
• Respect the greens, the club, and the members and don’t expose the green to anything that will harm it, such as food and drink, heeled shoes or bowling too hard or roughly.
Your barefoot bowling experience may even lead to a deeper interest in bowls as a sport, but whether it does or not, enjoy the party! Enjoy the bowls!

Where i live it is very popular to play barefoot bowls for social events and corporate gatherings. lawn bowls Melbourne is not just for the elderly any more.

The 2013 Lexus LX 570 emerges more refined than ever

Arriving at local dealerships early next month, the 2013 Lexus LX 570 wears its makeover well with greatly improved styling, a carefully enhanced interior, state-of-the-art technology and unexpected off-road versatility.

“With all of the enhanced features, the LX 570 offers perhaps the most exciting combination of luxury, on-road smoothness and off-road performance of any vehicle in its segment,” said Mark Templin, group vice president and general manager, Lexus Division.

The smarter look comes partly from fresh LED daytime lights accenting a new headlamp treatment with larger fog lamp bezels. The rear lighting cluster has also been updated, along with the license plate surround while the hitch has been better integrated into the overall appearance. Front and rear bumpers have a new chrome accent and turn signals were added to the sideview mirrors.

The LX 570 comes with a bodacious, load-hauling 5.7-liter V8, quad cam, 32-valve engine with dual (VVT-i). At 383 horsepower and 403 lb.-ft. of torque it will perform demanding tasks in the lap of luxury.

The new Crawl Control provides unexcelled throttle and brake modification when negotiating rough, convoluted surfaces. A fresh Turn Assist tightens cornering by adding brakes to the inside rear wheel, while an added Multi-terrain selector also allows drivers to customize performance to the terrain before them.

The 2013 Lexus LX 570 gets the greatly improved Lexus Enform, a color TFT display, improved seat cooling up front, a new power outlet in the second row plus new trims and accents, of course.

The navigator is displayed on a new high-resolution display with resident apps, providing mobile phone connectivity to a new level of information and entertainment management.

Owners can access Bing and other voice-activated apps to make reservations with OpenTable, schedule movie outings via MovieTickets.com or surf radio services with Pandora or iHeartRadio.

LX owners can also check-in on Facebook and look for restaurant or business reviews on Yelp. With SiriusXM data services, you can get updates on stocks, traffic, weather, sports and fuel prices. Enform works with iPhone, Android and Blackberry.

The optional Luxury Package ($ 1,510) includes a cooler box, semi-aniline leather-upholstery, contrasting stitching, heated steering wheel, mahogany-trimmed door switch plates, center armrest cover, climate controlled front seats and heated second-row window seats.

The new LX 570 also provides an available rear-seat entertainment system with two display screens, wireless headphones and a three-pronged electrical outlet for $ 2,005. This allows two input sources to be used simultaneously, for example, one for a DVD player with the other running a game or audio player.

For that amount of cash, you gain a revamped exterior, which includes Lexus’ new corporate grille, revised headlamps with LED daytime running lights, updated taillights, and side mirrors with integrated turn signals. The 5.7-liter V-8 carries over from last year’s model, and still offers the same 383 hp and 403 lb-ft of torque. Lexus did, however, update the Crawl Control feature, which is intended to provide optimum throttle and brake modulation over rough, uneven surfaces. A new Multi-Terrain Select feature allows drivers to choose between five terrain settings, while the new Turn Assist function can tighten the vehicle’s turning circle by increasing brake force on the inside rear wheel.

Also included is a new multimedia system, available with Lexus’ Enform Application Suite. Drivers can connect their mobile phone to Enform to search the web, make restaurant reservations by voice command, check-in on Facebook, or purchase movie tickets online. Internet radio services like Pandora and iHeartRadio are also accessible through Enform.

An optional Luxury package is available for the LX, and is priced at $ 1510. The package includes a cool box for beverages, semi-aniline leather-trimmed upholstery, mahogany door trim, heated and ventilated front seats, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, and a Smart Access card key. A dual screen rear-seat entertainment system is also available, which costs $ 2005, and comes with wireless headphones, rear three-prong electrical outlet, and dual-source playback capability.
