The Colonial Quoit Club is a private club based in Hamilton Township New Jersey. We play Trenton-Style Quoits. It was created in 2002 by neighbors Mark Prekop and Nick Lukasewycz. We boast a membership of 25 players and we play on Friday evenings from May to September at 7:00 p.m. It started out as a casual low-pressure evening of friends and friends of friends getting together for drinks and spirited competition. Over the years it has become so much more than that. We began keeping statistics of our matches and recording results such as ringers, total points wins and losses and averages. This allowed us to rank players throughout the season. We play five rounds per night with a maximum of five games per player.
|We randomly draw partners for each match. The matchups are selected by scoring average with the top seed and the lowest seed making up a team. That means you never have a steady partner and the onus is on you to perform. We created a web page and post results weekly at Colonialquoit.com. This is unprecedented in the quoit world. No other club or league does this and it is what separates us from the rest of the leagues in the area. As time went on, more and more top players liked the idea of stats and weekly ink and looked to join us. The quality of play went through the roof. The membership turnover was constant and we have become the best group of quoit pitchers in, dare I say the world?||
The Colonial name is well-known in the area for quoiting excellence. The club is always well-represented in the area tournaments and, usually, the winners circle. What started out as a recreational evening has turned into a highly competitive weekly battle between the premier pitchers in the area. We can no longer allow guests to play as it conflicts with the format. We conclude each season with a singles playoff tournament and an awards picnic in late September. The waiting list to join is lengthy and new members must be quality players and people of good moral standing. The club gets better and better every year and we hope to take quoits to the next level in the years to come.
