What are we doing? How close can you get to a target that is 10m away from you, when there are obstacles in the way?
Where should we do it? Driveway, sidewalk, backyard, or long hall (with permission).
What do we need? A tape measure or ruler, chalk or tape, something to act as your palina (ball, rock, can etc), and a bocce ball or tennis ball/softball/rolled up socks, 1 obstacle (large rock, can, rolled up socks)
How should we set up? Place a line on the ground using your chalk or tape and measure 10 meters or 10 BIG steps and place the palina (or what you are using) on the ground. Place your obstacle between the palina and the line on the ground so they prevent the ball from being rolled along the ground directly towards the palina.
How do we do it?
1) From the shooting line throw your Bocce ball (tennis ball/roll of socks) attempting to land as close to the palina as possible avoiding the obstacles.
2) Measure from the edge of your ‘ball’ to the edge of the palina *remember to measure in centimeters.
3) You can take up to 5 attempts and use your best score.
4) Measure how close you are to the palina each time you throw: 5.25cm, 4.75cm, 2cm, 7.5cm, 3.5cm. Submit the time that you were closest= 2cm.
