Sometimes close does count in this game! End all of your scoring disputes with an official measuring device! This is the most popular style of measuring tool in use in the sport today. It can measure for all possible scoring combinations. The straightedge measures for ringers. The notch hooks around the stake so that the tip of it is 6" from the stake-- Any shoe that the tool can touch when it is notched around the stake, is within the single point scoring range. The calipers can then be used to determine which shoe is the closest and thus, the point winner.

These stakes work best when mounted in a wood beam (approx. 18 inches long by at least 6 inches high). A piece of railroad tie or a log works great! Drill a 7/8" or 15/16" (preferred) diameter hole at a 12 degree angle from vertical into the center of the wood beam and tap the stake in with a sledge hammer. Make sure it goes several inches into the wood. Bury it with 14" exposed above the ground level, with the angled stakes leaning toward each other-- recheck the angle (it's important) before you fill the pit back in. Stakes should be 40 feet apart.
