Step 1: Materials and Tools Needed

Materials Needed
(1) 10 foot section of 2" PVC pipe
(2) 2" inside diameter PVC couplings
(2) Glass bottles
(1) Frisbee

Tools Needed
Measuring tape
Permanent marker
Miter saw or handsaw made for cutting plastic
PCV joint compound

Step 2:

Picture of
You first want to lay out the 10 foot section of 2" PVC and mark a line at the 5 foot mark. This mark will serve as your cut line.  

Step 3:

Picture of
Using the miter box or handsaw (whichever you prefer or have at your availability) carefully cut along the line, cutting the 10 foot PVC into two 5 foot section.  

Step 4:

Picture of
Taking one of the sections of PVC, lay it out and mark out a line that angles from one side to the other side. Use the picture below for your guidance/reference. This will serve as the spike, allowing you to drive the pole into the ground making it stable when playing the game. (Repeat line on both poles)

Step 5:

Picture of
Again, using the miter box or handsaw cut along the line that you previously marked, creating the angle. This is where a miter box is to your advantage, because it can easily and more carefully cut angles.  

Step 6:

Because the glass bottle does not sit nicely upon the top of the pole as it is now, it helps if you place a coupling on top of the pole that allows the bottle to sit more stable. Spread some of the joint compound on the inside of the coupling, and slide it over the top of the pole, making sure it is level. (Repeat on both poles)

Cool - nice work on the graphics. Will do this summer. 2 things - 1 - what happens if the bottle is knocked off, but I manage to catch both the bottle and Frisbee? (W/out dropping my beer of course) and 2 - ever use full bottles (water) and rings instead Frisbee?

If you catch everything, and nothing hits the ground, then there is no points awarded.

We have played with an aerobe before (its like a frisbee ring) It kinda worked but we enjoyed playing it the normal way better.

I will add. If the bottle is hit with the frisbee, then one point is automatically awarded even if you catch the bottle.
