Ready For Blo-Bowling
The inventors say it's a combination of hockey, football and soccer, and the newest "sport" in America. BloBowl, they add, is a great idea for putting new life into dead or dying county fairs, fundraisers or anytime you need to combine fun with attention-getting action.
The new game - there's even an official rulebook - is played with hand-held power blowers by two teams that try to blow a 7-in, nerf ball from one end of a 60 by 100-ft. playing field to the other.
The gasoline-powered blowers, used for miscellaneous yard and building cleanup, blast the ball back and forth along the ground, the object being to keep it in play as each team tries to move it to their goal line. Echo, Inc. in Northbrook, Ill., "invented" Blo-Bowl to promote their line of blowers and ended up holding a series of games across the U.S., including several tournaments to raise money for the Easter Seal Society. One championship game was played at half time of a professional soccer game in Chicago.
For a copy of the Blo-Bowl rulebook and information on Echo blowers, contact: FARM SHOW Followup, Echo, Inc., 3150 MacArthur Blvd., Northbrook, Ill. 60062.
