By the evening we are playing "5 Foot Washers" to have any chance of hitting the cup. It works out well because you can shoot next to the campfire and be part of the circle too.

Asking commercial trips if there the ice cream boat as thety float by can be quite entertaining. And of course no layover would be complete for many of us without drugs and alki haul.

KUBB is great fun.....and making your own set is a great winter project.
Googling it will give all the info needed to make a "regulation set", if such things appeal to the geek in you (as they do me), or just make your own unique and non-conforming set. Traditional sets are made of wood, but I've seen them made from short lengths of PVC, too.

We play can jam, bocce, and Portuguese horseshoes. Well I just googled Portuguese horseshoes and it looks nothing like what we play.. so in short Two pvc pipes about 5' tall driven into the sand so that they are about 4' sticking out.. set a beer on top of each pipe... two teams of two. throw a Frisbee at the opposing teams pipe and beer. one point for hitting the pipe. two points for hitting the pipe and the beer hitting the ground, three points for hitting the beer and it reaching the ground.. if you catch the beer before it hits the ground 0 points. play to 21 losing team shotguns two warm well shaken beers.

It's all about balance and finesse by giving them slack and tugging hard. Size, age and sex have nothing to do with winning. It's all about balance, trickery, and staying on your ammo can.

X2 on the ammo can tug o war.
