While there have been of course those persons who have moved from the eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey areas to other areas of the county and who have brought their slate quoit boards with them, in general slate boards are not often shipped either by ground or air transport since the weight of the boards makes such shipping costs prohibitively high for the average person to justify on top of the cost of the boards themselves, which are not inexpensive. Slate is used as the game board not only because it is readily available in such area, but also because the playing surface can be sanded to provide the proper texture. In addition, while slate has properties that make it ideal for use in making quoit boards, a drawback of slate is that it chips rather easily, so that greater than normal care in packaging and transporting the boards is required, further increasing the shipping costs. FIG. Through trial and error and a significant investment of time and experimentation, the present inventor has developed a process for manufacturing a quoit board that is made preferably of high density polyethylene (HDPE) having a substantially lower weight than a similarly sized slate quoit board. While such new devices provide new games and the like that are useful for their particular purposes, as far as the present inventor is aware, no one has previously been able to develop a quoit board that can satisfactorily simulate the experience of playing quoits with a slate quoit board but which board is lighter and more durable than such slate boards, and which objective is accomplished by the present inventor's boards. This game can be played at the sea shore in the sand where you can compete on the beach or indoors all year long as well as backyard picnics. Unfortunately, however, quoits has not significantly increased in popularity outside of this general area, and in fact remains relatively unknown in many parts of the United States as well as in most of the rest of the world. After hub 16 has been secured to board section 14, board support 18 is also secured extending along the rear edge 24 of the underside 22 of board section 14 by screws, bolts, or the like extending downwardly through holes 64. It is a still further object of the invention to provide a quoit board that weighs significantly less than a slate quoit board, thereby significantly reducing the shipping costs associated with such boards, but that also has most of the advantages of such slate quoit boards. A quoit board and method of manufacture of a quoit board that is significantly lighter than a conventional slate quoit board, the board portion of which is made from a plastic material and wherein the surface of the plastic is treated to provide a suitable playing surface for receiving rubber quoits tossed at such surface during play.

Nevertheless, judging from the popularity of quoits in the âslate beltâ and closely surrounding areas, and from the popularity of horseshoes in general throughout the United States and world, the present inventor believes that if made readily available and properly marketed, quoits would quickly expand in popularity. After peg 32 is inserted into hole 62, bolt 35 with washers 36 is tightened in threaded aperture 34, securing peg 32 to board section 14 as shown. Thus, by using HDPE sheets having a stock thickness, substantial labor in manufacturing the boards is eliminated. Giant quoits are similar to traditional quoits and were first discovered through the internet. The present inventor has found that this can be accomplished by subjecting the playing surface to a sandblasting process for a predetermined period of time using a fine grit material. On the other hand, if the surface is too rough, the rubber quoits will be quickly become worn or damaged as they are thrown and come into contact with the playing surface. It is therefore a primary object of the present invention to provide a quoit board incorporating the advantages of conventional slate quoit boards during play but that is more durable and less costly to manufacture than slate quoit boards.

It is a still further object of the invention to provide a process of making an improved quoit board from a material other than slate wherein the target or playing surface of the board is textured so that it is neither too smooth for the quoits to properly adhere to the board nor too coarse for the quoits to be damaged when contacting such surface. Hubs of the type shown are well known in the prior art and are currently used with conventional slate quoit boards. 6 is a side view of the hub or central post of a quoit board in accordance with the present invention.

The version of the game quoits just described became popular in eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey because such area is the heart of the so-called âslate beltâ of the United States, where large quantities of high quality slate from which the quoit boards can be manufactured are readily available. The present inventor has identified as a result the need for a lower weight slate board that includes most if not all of the desirable characteristics of traditional slate boards that is relatively simple and inexpensive to manufacture but that does not have the substantial weight of a slate board and therefore is easier and less expensive to transport or ship. marbles tossing, e.g. The tournament quoit pitching distance is between pins but this quoit set can be played at any fun pitching distance.
