2012 Buttonwood Quoits Tournament

2012 Sunline Meet and Great @ Buttonwood Quoits Tournament
Just posting a quick note regarding a new event at Buttonwood next year. A Quoits Tournament. Here in the Slate Belt of Pennsylvania Quoits are very popular. Realizing that people “foreign” to Eastern PA may not know what it is all about; I have included the rules below and a link to a local company that has pictures and good information explaining the game. Depending on the numbers interested we could have single or double elimination tournament or perhaps a couples tournament would be fun. (i.e.: husband/wife, parent / child, master / dog), but then I guess thumbs would be needed to play the game. Familiarize yourself with the game and if you find you may be interested in participating look for the sign ups later in the year.
Happy Camping,
MM

Quoits Tournament
June, 2012
SUNLINE OWNERS CLUB @ BUTTONWOOD

Quoit Rules
Quoits can be played with two people, four people, or, if you want to practice, individually. Below is a list of all of the standard rules.

Starting A Game:

1. The quoit boards are placed 18 feet on center (from hub to hub).
2. One-on-one - You pitch from the same side of the boards when you travel to the opposing board. Non-diagonally.
3. Two-on-two (a.k.a. couples or doubles) - Your partner pitches from the diagonal side of the board
4. There are 4 quoits (2 for you and 2 for your partner). You can determine who throws the first pitch of the first game. After the first game, the loser of the prior game makes the first pitch to start the game.
5. Pitching turns alternate with each quoit.
6. The pitcher's forward foot may not extend beyond the hub of his "home" board.

Determining The Score:


1. The first person or team to reach a score of 21 wins the game.
  • Every "ringer" (meaning the quoit landed on the hub) is worth 3 points If a player should make a ringer and have his second quoit closer to the hub than his opponent, he receives 4 points (Three points for the ringer and 1 point for the quoit closest to the hub).
  • Each ringer pitched counts as 3 points, except when the same player pitches two ringers, one directly on top of the other. This player is then awarded 3 additional points, for a total of 6 points. When the first player pitches a ringer which is topped by an opponent, it is the opponent only who receives 3 points. When the first player pitches a ringer which is topped by an opponent and then topped by the first player again, the last ringer made by the first player counts as 3 points for the first player. As a premium, when four ringers are made, the player pitching the last ringer wins the game.
  • Every "leaner" (meaning the quoit is leaning against the hub but not a ringer) is worth 1 point.
  • If there are no ringers and leaners, the person who throws the closest quoit gets one point. If the same person's second quoit is the next closest he/she gets two points.
  • The rings on the board are used to determine the closest quoit. If you cannot determine the closest quoit from the front side (closest side of the quoit to the hub) you can usually determine it by comparing the backside (the side of the quoits furthest from the hub) to the outer rings.
  • If a quoit is touching the ground, or has touched the ground, it is a "dead quoit". Remove it from the board before the next pitch. If you don't remove it any quoits that touch a dead quoit are also dead.
  • A quoit can be hanging off the side of the board. As long as it has not touched the ground the quoit is still good. This is called the daylight rule because you can see “daylight” through the quoit since it is hanging off of the board. This rule is sometimes disputed, so decide if you want to play “Daylight Counts” before you start playing against your opponent.
  • Interference due to a wandering dog or small child (which sometimes happens) is grounds for a "re-throw" (a.k.a. do-over) if the quoit is deflected during release or in mid-air.

MM, I haven't played quoits since I was a kid. My grandparents had a set that we used quite often. I have a set that my parents purchased many years ago. Neither my grandparents' nor my parents' had a quoits board. We played like horse shoes with the stakes driven into the ground. Also, there were no rubber quoits; they were all cast iron or steel. I better get mine out a practice before next year.

Hmm...interesting. Sounds a lot like Cornhole in the Midwest.

Al,
The steel quoits around here are called "Trenton Quoits". They are the steel rings thrown on stakes in the ground. Very popular in the central Jersey area. This area of PA is rich in slate quarries and it is just a natural progression to the slate boards. So far we have 3 boards available for next Meet and Greet, 2 slate and 1 composite. Around here many bars have quoits right inside available to play through the winter. Many tournaments and some very serious throwers.

Jon,
Yes I have heard of Cornhole. Is that the corn bags thrown into a hole on a board? Same concept except you have a hub to score on as compared to a hole. These slate boards go 60 - 70 #'s a piece so that's why I went to the composite boards for camping. I have 1 composite and 1 slate board, Mike has a slate board. So between the 3 we could have a good couples tournament. Hope to see you and your folks next year. How is school going? PM me and update me on your internship.

Regards,
Jay

One-hundred-ninety dollars for a freakin' toss game!!?? Are they serious?!!??

Geez, we Rebs just take the ol' grey mare's cast-offs and pitch 'em at a pole in the ground. We use the remaining $170 for beer and barbecue (eastern Carolina-style, of course).

Bumping this up to see if there is any interest. I can supply 2 sets of quoits, 1 composite and one slate. We could have a men's and woman's tournament or perhaps in the interest of time have a couples tourney. Who is in?

Sounds interesting, and could maybe be played near our community tent. That might help get others to join in ??

I forgot all about this. A neighbor created a similar game (more like it than cornhole) and it uses big metal washers. They have two wood boxes, maybe 16" square, with a ~3" piece of PVC pipe attached in the center. They then filled the box with sand most of the way. The goal is to throw the washers back and forth, and you get more points to get it in the center than in the box on the outside, and of course that's worth points over not getting it in anywhere.

Being the fan of PA that I am and given the Sunline being what it is, it seems like quoit boards should be a mandatory piece of equipment in there!

Great, there seems to be some interest, I bring two set quoits and sign up sheets. We can play doubles or mens and womans eliminations. We will try to schedule times around other activites. We can take Kitty's sugestion and have it near the activity tent.
Regards,
MM
