Here is a very inexpensive project that will bring hours of enjoyment for people of all ages!  I can only take credit for the name, which I said after first playing this addicting game in a local sandwich shop. Can

Step 1: Materials...

Materials needed are:

1- 2" metal ring
1- Screw type wall hook (Large)
1-  hook / latch (Small)
7 feet of string/twine

<p>why stop with a ring and a hook,... I make these but now use other item,..<br>a baseball on the string and an upside down wine bottle is one of them,....<br></p>
<p>They used to have these games at a campground we stayed at when I was younger. I need to make one of these. Thanks for the reminder. </p>
nice maxim <br>
Also, you should add a good knot suggestion for attaching the ring to the string and the string to the ceiling hook. I found the '<a href="http://www.animatedknots.com/uniknot/index.php" rel="nofollow">uni knot</a>' to be very useful. Every other knot I tried eventually slipped.
This is a good start for somebody looking to make the 'ringing the bull' game, but the measurements will vary by ceiling height. You might want to add that in. One key thing I picked up for your project was that the ring should be centered over the hook when fully extended. Nobody else mentions that! Thanks.
For just a few bucks worth of stuff from the hardware store and less than 5 minutes to set it up, I find that this game is alot of fun. It's sometimes referred to as &quot;Bimini ring&quot; or &quot;ringing the bull.&quot;
looks like someone forgot to hide the maxims :-o
maybe hes just proud of his clearly well-used poster<br />
