First "Quoit Night Out"
September 7, 2000
 

On September 7, 2000, we had our first "Quoit Night Out" in my back yard.  I invited 9 of my quoit-throwing friends over for an evening of quoits and socializing. Everyone had such a great time they all would like to get together to do this again before it gets too cold in the evenings this Fall.  Here are a few of the photos I took of the action...

A few of the competitors team up early in the evening.  Kevin Bowers watches as  Tim Meyer, Karl Scott, Brad Kramer, and Dave Callis start a new game.

Greg Sollenberger pitches his last quoit as Dave Callis looks on.  The quoits are sure sticking upright in the clay tonight!

Dave Callis lands a Point while Brad Kramer waits his turn to hopefully take it away.

 

Greg Sollenberger shows good form behind the foul line. Gene Shaiebly is intent on planning his strategy

for his turn at the line.

A good grouping, but "A" comes away with four good points on this pitch, with a Ringer and a Toucher.

 

Troy Frey sends his quoit arcing toward the opposing pit.

Gene Shaiebly lets one fly!

Gene made the best pitch of the night right here -  scoring 5 points for both a Ringer and a Leaner.

This was a close attempt at topping the opponents She-quoit Ringer, but it came up just a bit short!  Remember, She-quoits count only when we play by my House Rules, as we were this evening.  The more points the merrier!!

Greg Sollenberger follows through on his pitch.  Or, is he perhaps trying to hail a Cab?
"Hey, Taxi!"

Kevin's turn to throw. Note the crowbar hanging on the pit cover, which was used to pry stubborn quoits out of the soft clay when they buried themselves deep!

These two pictures, above and below, show the best throwing sequence of the evening.  First, Fred Rowe pitched the two Leaners seen above during his turn. Then below, Dick Parson's second quoit nosed into the clay in front of the pin, flipped over, knocked away both Leaners, and leaned itself onto the pin for 2 points, taking away Fred's would-be 4 points!  Woo Hoo!
