    Posted: 22 July 2004 at 10:54pm

My friends and I just started a new team and to put it lightly we are horrible. So I decided to make a practice field. Here's what I used:

  • 2 broken-down lawn mowers (riding)
  • 3 empty trash cans
  • 4 pallets
  • 4 rolls of unused chain link fence (14-18 in. think)
  • 1 old grill
  • 2 old chairs
  • 3 large pool rafts
  • 2 pieces of plywood
  • 1 volcano shaped pool raft (6 ft. tall, 7 ft. base) 

So far it's working out great. LOL. You can always put some old junk to use, huh?

I don't have a sig anymore

Hmm awsome, that sounds like a really big course. My friends and I made one for a two man team. We had a stack of tires as the fifty, two grabadge cans as a bunker, two as another, a wheel barrow and a little red wagon and then one bunker made of sticks. It didnt get used often, it was to hard to play.

Improvising is fun, isn't it?

Most importantly - People suck.

Pics are coming soon. The course was in one of our pastures and I had to move it to another because the grass grew too high to play. I expect it to be finished with a few more things by late next week.

Pretty cool, my friends and me use old tires. Any tire company or auto shop will almost pay you to take them off their hands. You may want to try that if you want more bunkers.

I think I may want to do something like this... I have a huge backyard, that has some awesome trees, but not too many of them... I've played it as it is, but there isn't enough trees but for a 1 on 1 game, which I don't like the most... I think I'll get my mum's approval, then get tires and junk yard stuff, then build bunkers, then net it so paint won't hit my house... Junk yard items cost near-to-nothing, the tires I can get for free, from my dad's shop, so the only thing I must pay for is a bit of netting...

Pretty well, I just didn't have a good way to fasten them to the ground so they wanted to blow away. Nothing bricks and duct tape can't fix...

If you live by a river then go talk to the local fisherman and get a lot of old shrimp net or something that has small holes and use that. you could probaly get that for free. i know i did.
I LIKE BIKES!
