Oh, you probably want to know what Feather Bowling is, right?  

Well, it's a unique Belgian sport that could be described as a cross between bocci ball and shffleboard.  It is played using wooden discs or balls that resemble a wheel of cheese and are rolled from one end of a trough shapped lane to the other, with the object being to land the balls closest to a feather "planted" at each end of the lane.

You'll be glad you were there!
