Just thought I'd share a Memorial Day tradition with everyone here. Horseshoes are a pretty commonplace picnic/BBQ game, but quoits are mostly confined to the Northeast: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quoits It's similar, but played with steel rings instead of steel horseshoes. Even more obscure still is the version of quoits played in around the greater Trenton area/Mercer County NJ: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quoits#Mercer_County.2C_New_Jersey "Trenton quoits" are larger in diameter with larger inner holes than traditional quoits. I've never really been able to figure out why or how Trenton quoits evolved from the more traditional version that is played in places like the Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania and elsewhere. My theory is that some local metalworkers (Trenton was a big manufacturing center at one time) somehow adapted traditional quoits for their own purposes. Why I have no idea, but growing up, no outdoor gathering in the summer was complete without the "clang" of quoits in the background. You can read up on the rules on the Wikipedia page, but this was the tournament clincher of this year's tournament (I won ): Any quoit players here-traditional or otherwise?
