Bowling & Billiards

“Well, ya got trouble, my friend … right here in River City … Trouble with a capital “T” and that rhymes with “P” and that stands for pool.”

Remember The Music Man? Well, thankfully, there’s not that stigma about the pool hall anymore.  (Although, I suppose if you’re a teenager, you wish there was.)

Silverbrook U-Catch Trout

Back in the day, it was a stick and a string and a poor wriggly worm.  And you had to hike uphill both ways in the snow in bare feet.  Well, you’re in luck, at Silverbrook U-Catch, there’s a rod with your name on it (well, it doesn’t really have your name on it; you’ll have to share), a lake with your fish in it (really), and, chances are good, you don’t have to hike uphill both ways to get there.  You even get to take your catch home with you for dinner! Yummy! Hope Granddad’s around for the gutting!

Turn it into a feat of strength.
