Ten human bowling pins… don’t try this at home

Golfers did a double take in Brisbane this morning at a monster ten pin “bowling alley” which materialised on a steep hill of the inner city Victoria Park golf course.

As we reported yesterday, the stunt was the brainchild of radio station Nova 106.9’s Ash, Kip & Luttsy and it stopped traffic as players and workers alike joined the crowds to witness what a game of “human bowling” looked like.

Nova staff and sporting identities, including dual Olympic Gold medalist, Susie O’Neill and Queensland Firebirds’ Gabi Simpson, strapped into sumo suits and donned mouth guards and protective head gear and shuffled into formation as the human bowling pins.

Five Nova listeners, who had each won the chance to compete, were then strapped in with a friend into a giant Zorb ball and invited to hurl themselves down the hill and knock over as many human pins as they could for cash.

Nova 106.9 boss Jay Walkerden (pictured below) nominated by Ash, Kip & Luttsy to stand at the very front of the human bowling pin formation resulted in Walkerden being repeatedly mowed down by the runaway Zorb ball.
