indoor disc golf using plastic bottles and caps

by:HongXing     2020-05-15
Play disc golf indoors by making your own miniature disc catcher (
Or a \"capcatcher\" in this case \")from a 20-
Oz sports drink bottle, using the old bottle cap as a flying disc.
For those who are not familiar with disc golf, it follows the same premise as regular golf, except not to try to put the ball into a cup in the distance with the least number of hits, you try to put the pan in the basket in the distance. shaped target.
Start by finding the right bottle.
I used an old vitamin water bottle because it was the kind of bottle I drank.
I think Gatorade or other types of bottles will work, but as you can see, they may require a little more effort from you.
In addition to bottles and bottle caps, you need the following materials: pins of various sizes of cardboard scrap fabric cords (
1/8, 5/16 or 1/4)
You may want some extra caps.
Most sports drinks and family drinks are the ones to look --
Juice bottle size.
The basket frame will use a bamboo string and the tripod base will use a 1/8 \"pin.
We first need to make some cuts in the bottles that insert these sticks.
The bottle I use has six panels on both sides and two small bumps on each.
If you use the same type of bottle, you can mark your bottle as shown and get the same result as me.
Otherwise, you will have to measure and list the cuts on the particular bottle you want.
Two pictures of milk in the bottle show where it is possible to mark the cut-out of the skewers and pins inserted. (
The milk is only there, so the mark on the photo will show better. )
The purple mark indicates where the bamboo string will go to take the basket, and the red mark indicates where the pin will go to take the tripod.
The purple mark should be in the same position on all six panels.
Red marks on adjacent panels should have different marks.
Small \"X\" cuts with sharp blades at each marker position.
Before we insert the pins and skewers, you will need to place the upright pins in place.
Cut a pin of 5/16 or 1/4, so it is 18 inch long.
Track the bottle mouth on some cardboard and cut out the resulting disc shape.
Cut several X cuts in the center of the cardboard disc with your best judgment.
This will serve as a centering ring for 18 \"pins.
Glue the bottom of the pin to the inner center bottom of the bottle and glue the cardboard disc to the top of the water bottle, and the pin will pass through it.
Cut three 1/8 \"pins\" into 7 1/2 long.
Cut off the tip of six bamboo skewers.
They should have around 11 without their points.
Starting with the skewers, insert one into the top purple X on one of the panels and make it exit the lower purple X on the relative panel.
Work counter
Insert all skewers clockwise to ensure that each new skewer exceeds the previous skewer as shown in the figure.
You may need to make a few changes to them, but they are very flexible.
Similarly, insert pins, just insert them into the lower red X, and insert them from the top red X on the opposite side.
Each skewer should be highlighted a little from the bottom (maybe 1/4\")
, The pin should be highlighted from the top in the same way.
Adjust the tripod legs as needed to make the upright positioning pin fully upright.
Place some hot glue where each ske and dowel enters or exits the bottle.
My gun is a low temperature gun that melts the plastic a little, so be careful if you use a high temperature glue gun.
According to the size shown on my pattern in the photo, cut out six pieces of fabric. (
If you have to adapt these instructions to a different bottle type, you may need to take out your own size for the basket strap. )
I used some old canvas and if the cap flew straight into the basket without hitting the guide cable first, it worked quite well to prevent the cap from slipping out. (
I tried using nylon on this prototype and it was so smooth. )
Glue the edges together and overlap 1/2 \".
I found it easier and faster to stick the mesh together first, forming a soft umbrella shape.
Then I put the whole piece on the basket frame and nailed it in place with hot glue.
Cut six bamboo skewers, about 1/2 long.
As the structure is reversed, stick a skewer to the top of each part of the net and fold over the fabric, then stick it down on the skewer.
This makes the whole basket hard and, as a lip, adds an additional measure to prevent the cap from sliding out of the basket.
Draw two 10 \"circles on some cardboard with a compass.
Cut the cardboard plate.
On one of them, a circle with the following radius is measured and marked with a protractor: 4 1/2 \"3 3/4\" 3 \"2 1/4\" and 4 1/2 \"radius circle per 30 degrees.
Use a sharp blade to cut about 1/16 \"wide to 4 1/2\" cuts from the outside of the disc.
Mark 3 \"radius circles every 15 degrees.
Use a sharp blade to cut a small hole at each mark.
3 circles with a radius of 3/4 \"and 2 1/4\" are used to guide the line, and we use these circles when we glue the rope deflection ring to this disc.
The regular disc golf catcher has a series of chains hanging on the upper structure above the basket that ideally absorb the momentum of the flying disc and deflected it into the basket.
To make a similar functional device, I used about 5/32 Poly rope.
The price of £ 75 feet at Home Depot is $3. (
I think any similar string can work properly. )
Cut 24 ropes 10 \"long.
Make sure all parts are exactly the same.
Cut 12 13 \"long ropes.
Use a lighter at all ends of the cutting piece to melt the rope to prevent it from wearing out.
Cut four fabrics 3/4 wide, two of which are at least 8 inch long and the other two at least 10 inch long.
24 shorter ropes should be glued to one of the 8 ropes
An inch of fabric.
Divide them about 1/16 \"to make sure the ends are uniform and the bottom of the fabric strip is uniform.
Wrap the fabric in a ring with an outer-facing cord and glue it together (
As shown in the photo).
Extra 8-glue
There are inches of fabric strips on the outside, sealing the rope inside the fabric ring.
Do the same for the longer 12 ropes and 10 ropes
An inch of fabric. (
If you look at the finished picture of capcatcher, you may notice that there is a fabric of 2 1/2 at the bottom of the outer ring of the rope.
I added this to cover the rounded upper part of the plastic bottle and the cap will hit and bounce directly from the catcher.
I cut the rope a little short.
In this step, my measurement of the length of the rope eliminates the problem I am having. )
Insert the ropes into the holes and gaps on the cardboard disc, and even using the reference lines we drew before, glue them down.
Before you start gluing things, make sure that the smaller ring with 24 ropes is on the inner sleeve hole on the disc.
On two cardboard discs, make a few X and cut it into the center of the upright pin.
Cut ten pieces of cardboard by 1 inch.
Use a rope to stick four of them to the center hole on the disc.
These will serve to keep the disk perpendicular to the pin.
Stick this disk to the upright pin, leaving about 1/2 of the pin.
Stick the other six cards on this disc as spacers to keep the second disc parallel to the first one.
Now stick the second disk to it.
The cardboard I use is 1/4 thick, so the total thickness of the cardboard disc with spacers in the middle is 1/2.
I cut some long cloth strips 1 1/2 wide and carefully glued them to the appropriate position to cover the opening between the two discs.
To finish it, I made a small carrying ring with some wires stuck in the small holes I drilled into the top of the main pin. There you are.
Your catcher is finished!
To make the most of your homemade capcatcher, you should set up a series of interesting holes at home.
You can make more traps or move the same ones for each hole.
Just like an ordinary outdoor disc golf course, there should be a lot of variety to get a fun and challenging experience.
Here are some ideas to help you develop an in-room course: 1.
Create all kinds of holes
Type, some difficulties, some are not very difficult. 2.
Assign a \"par\" rating for each hole.
In the absence of any major errors, the minimum number of successful throws to reach and enter the basket should be par.
When you shoot well, you\'re lucky, or you shoot well, the birds show up. (
There is a standard rating to make the game work.
You must have a standard to compare your performance. )3.
Players with more talent or experience should start each hole from a larger distance or more difficult angle. 4.
Use the specific features of your home to make challenging holes.
Walk along the corridor, get in and out of the room, up and down the stairs, etc. 5.
Specify certain areas or elements of your home as punishment areas.
Here are some examples :-
Create \"sand pits\" by naming certain parts of the floor, carpet or furniture \".
If you land on these, the penalty is that you have to do the next shot with your strange hand (
Left Is Right, right is left). -
Create the \"water\" area in the same way.
If you land in these areas, you have to make a batting penalty and shoot the next batting from where your hat first crosses into the \"waters. \" -Create \"out-of-bounds\" areas.
If your cap falls in these places, you have to bring one
Remake your shot from the previous position.
Also, try to completely ban certain walls.
If your cap comes into contact with these walls at any time, it will disappearof-bounds.
