Chun Quoit
Lanyon Quoit There a number of Quoits in the region of West Cornwall. The term Quoit seems local to Cornwall, similar monuments are known as dolmens or cromlechs elsewhere. These monuments are Neolithic and were originally covered by earthen mounds, which have eroded through time. Chun Quiot sits close to Chun Castle, an Iron Age hillfort. This fort commands a very powerful defensive position in open moorland and was very heavily fortified by stone ramparts. On excavation in the 1920's evidence was found of a smelting furnace, showing that tin has been an important Cornish commodity for at least three thousand years. Chun Quoit is regarded as one of the finest such monuments, but Lanyon Quoit is just as impressive with its huge capstone. It almost looks like a small giant's table. The fact that it was rebuilt in its present form in the nineteenth century does not diminish its appearance. At the time of this rebuilding a collection of jumbled stones was found at the south of where the large mound had been. These were thought to be the remains of an earlier burial. The capstone stands 2m high and is 5m in length. Home Cornwall Scotland Glossary ... Site map

Part of the Website Welcome to 'The Quoit Pits' Home of The Pitching Dutchmen Quoit Club Lancaster County, Pennsylvania QUOITS (generally pronounced " KWAITS " by most purveyors of the sport) is a very ancient throwing game that is recognized as the predecessor to the more commonly-known game of Horseshoe Pitching. It can be played as a simple backyard lawn game or in full competition tournament style involving clubs or leagues. Because Horseshoes evolved from the game of Quoits, both are played in a similar manner, but the "feel of the game" in Quoits is quite different from that of Horseshoes when it is conducted on a properly maintained Quoit court. There are numerous versions of this very old game found throughout the world, and even here in the US many variations exist, depending on the locale. Quoits themselves ca n vary greatly in composition, being made from iron, steel, brass, bronze, rubber, rope, wood, or even plastic.

The name was also borne by the following saints: (1) a Roman tribune who suffered martyrdom under Hadrian; (2) a bishop of Siscia in Pannonia; (3) the patron of the Tegernsee in Bavaria, beheaded in Rome in 269 and invoked by those suffering from gout. The petroleum (Quirinus-oil) found in the neighbourhood of the lake takes its name from him. QUIRITES (literally “ spearmen “; see QUIRINUs), the earliest name of the burgesses of Rome. Combined in the phrase “populus Romanus Quirites (or Quiritium) “ it denoted the individual citizen as contrasted with the community. Hence ius Quiritium in Roman law is full Roman citizenship. Subsequently the term lost the military associations due to the original conception of the people as a body of warriors, and was applied (sometimes in a deprecatory sense, cf. Tac. Ann. ~. 42) to the Romans in domestic affairs, Romani being reserved for foreign affairs. (For the distinction between Quiritary and praetorian ownership, see ROMAN LAW.) Quito derives its name from the Quitus, who inhabited the locality a long time before the Spanish conquest. In ‘533 Sebastian Benalcazar took peaceable possession of the native town (which had been successivly a capital of the Seyris and Incas), and in 1541 it was elevated to the rank of a Spanish city. Its full title was San Francisco del Quito, and it was capital of the province or presidency of Quito down to the end of Spanish colonial rule. It has suffered repeatedly from earthquakes, the greatest damage occurring from those of 1797 and 1859.

Quoits - A Background Background The game of Quoits is ancient, and no-one can possibly know for sure how, when or why it began. So, in the absence of any specific evidence, speculation rules.
In the north east of England, many of today's players believe that their game originated in the Olympiads of Ancient Greece, as an early form of discus throwing. From Greece, they say, it travelled to Rome and from there reached these shores at the time of the Roman Conquest. At this point, it is claimed, an interesting form of class distinction emerged – the officers played with specially-made, bronze quoits, while the troops, whose take-home pay did not run to such luxury, made do with discarded horseshoes. A case of putting the quoit before the horse, one might say.
Another theory which I am fond of, but cannot prove, assumes that, having invented footwear for the horse, man did not rest content, but soon adapted the shoes for his own impractical purposes, and began throwing them at a pin, stake or hook, for recreation and amusement. The game of Horseshoes could have been brought here by invaders or settlers from Jutland or the Low Countries – a suggestion backed up by the fact that the Boers in South Africa and Dutch settlers in America and Canada still play it. Horseshoes, then according to this story, came first and the developed an offshoot called Quoits. At the Dunnottar Quoiting Club near Stonehaven, in Scotland, some of the members subscribe to yet another story, Quoits, they say, was invented by James IV, who encouraged his soldiers to relax and pass the time before major battles by throwing horseshoes at an iron pin stuck in the ground.

Greek athletes enjoyed the game where it was a sport to throw a discus. Later the game evolved from distance to accuracy and stakes were added. Quoits became very popular among the English Noblemen. British solders played the game of Quoits while in America during the American Revolutionary War. The British and American solders used it to pass the time. The common man couldn’t afford to have a set of Quoits made and so horseshoes became the next best thing.
The game is made up of two stakes and four rings which are called hobs. It can be played with two players and each player will receive two rings to toss from one end of the play area. Once they have tossed from one end, the score will be tallied and then the rings will be toss back from the opposite end. If you have four players, teammates are at opposite ends of the court and where they remain the whole game. The stakes are set about 18 - 20 feet apart. Scoring varies by whose version you play. If the hob is only one ring away, you receive one point. For a leaner or hobber you receive two points. If you throw a ringer you receive three points and if the other team throws a ringer on top of yours they receive points for your ringer and theirs.
Quoits tournaments take place throughout the United States and in Canada. At Fun-Attic Sports and Toys we carry Muckers, which is rubber version of the steel Quoits. The rubber version has become very popular because it is constructed for all ages. Young children starting out will not cut up their hands from sharp steel edges. The more experienced players will appreciate the feel of the weighted natural rubber rings. To find out more, be sure to visit our

    Interlocking Quoits
    Figure 1
    Figure 2
    I make no claim to have originated this type of pattern. It was derived from the principles laid down in the book The Language of Pattern by Keith Albarn, Jenny Miall Smith, Stanford Steele and Dinah Walker (Page 75).
    I have however added the colour and 3-dimensionality that the authors omitted in the book. To create the image you see at Figure 1 I used that wonderful bit of software, Bryce 4.
    The method of generating these patterns is not at all obvious from the finished products - indeed at first glance they do not look as though they have been created according to a logical scheme at all, but they have.
    Start with the circumference of a circle (in blue - Figure 2). Divide this into any number of equally sized segments. Connect the vertices with straight lines in a random, continuous loop (trying to ensure that the two chords from each vertice are of different lengths) then draw circles with origins at each vertice and radii equal to the length of the two chords from that point formed by the continuous loop. Then, by the judicious removal of parts of the generated curves a woven series of toruses (quoit shapes) can be seen. The rest is a matter of colour.

    What Is Quoits?
    Unless you happen to hail from the Lehigh Valley area, you're probably wondering what the hell is quoits? You may have heard of a version of the game that is similar to horseshoes, where you toss heavy metal rings at the horseshoe stakes instead of the horseshoes. Different. The version of quoits we play here (the Slate Belt version) involves tossing rubber rings at an angled slate board with a short (about 4 inch) stake sticking out of the center. Rules and game play is similar to horseshoes, with 2 teams of 2 players each playing to 21.
    The Board
    The playing surface of the quoit board is an approximately 2-foot-by-2-foot square, 1 inch thick piece of slate (yes, heavy ). The "pin", (also referred to as the hub) which sticks up through the center of the board, is a brass or aluminum cylinder roughly 4 inches long and 3/4 of an inch in diameter. Rings are etched into the board around the pin to aid in measuring whose ring is closest to the pin. A 2X4 block of wood is fastened to the bottom of the back of the board to give it slope. Two boards are included in a set.
    The Quoits
    The Quoits themselves are rubber rings approximately 5.5 inches in diameter and about an inch thick. They are flat on the underside and rounded on top. The hole in the center of each quoit measures 3 inches in diameter. Four quoits are included in a set.

(MIGHT SPOOK THE OPPOSITION) The Northern Game The Association of Amateur Quoits Clubs for the North of England was the name give to the official body that laid down the 15 rules that were published in "The Field" in 1881. This set of rules constituted what is now called The Northern Game and it has remained largely unchanged ever since. Although the Northern Game has lost some of it's popularity, it is still played seriously and enthusiastically in the North of England under the auspices of The National Quoits Association which was formed in 1986 and is undergoing something of a resurgence of late. The game has the hobs (stakes that the quoits were aimed at) 11 yards apart in 3 feet squares of clay, the maintenance of which is quite an art, it seems. Originally, players used an iron quoit which weighed about a pound but regional variations resulted in quoits which reportedly weighed up to 23 lb. which may or may not be an exaggeration. In the Northern game, nowadays, quoits measure about 5 1/2 inches in diameter and weigh about 5 1/2 pounds. Some of the terms commonly used in the Northern game are:
