I sure wish we lived closer together, Donna, I'd love to meet you in person I'll have to make a west-coast gathering one of my retirement trips !

I think making the board out of fiberglass would be a great idea, Nicholas. It would be a lot lighter, and stand up better to the elements, than those made from painted plywood. You could likely market it after working out a good mould for it. As I am not set up for the same processes you are, I wonder about using a board made out of thin (1/8 or 1/4") Baltic Birch ply, and laminating it with glass. It would be a bit more time consuming than simply molding one, but as a one off item, it would save lots of time on the mould making process.

Take lots of photos along the way, I am eager to see your process and how it works.

I used to play this game quite a bit over the years, along with horseshoes, but in the past 15 years or so, we have mostly played all-terrain bocce, or Snake Toss, as they break down better for transport while RVing. The lighter Corn Toss board might make that more appealing once again.

In my books, any game you can play one-handed, while holding your favourite beverage in your other had, is tops in my books.

Just think, you can have a game that matches your trailer, now that is glamping.

So that is what that game is called. Yeah, drinking helps.

"All-Terrain Bocce" has been played in my backyard (actually in 3 backyards at once). The ball that we aimed for was actually a softball so that it could be spotted in the grass after you lobbed it over to the other yard, and the bocce balls had to have quite a bit of 'ooomph' put into the roll to get across all the grass hummocks.

Love the idea of a lightweight, transportable game. The plywood ones are pretty big and awkward to pack.
