catchbox.jpegOk, I made a new catch box. Why ? Well...my last two catch boxes ended up in the garbage because I left them out in the rain. :banghead:
At first I wanted to make a from a plastic storage box, but my mom said"NO!". :bonk:
So here it is. :)
Cool looking catch box! This is why parents teach there kids to put their toys away after play time! Keeps the rain from messing them up!

Along this similar idea, I usually keep a small cardboard box with a couple towels wadded up inside it. I will stick a paper target on the outside of the box, toss it in the yard and shoot until it is expired. Put the box in a container, and shake out all the balls that were trapped by the wadded up towels. Then look for another box, and repeat. A beer or soda 12 pack box is about the right size for a 8.5x11 target print out.

Palmettoflyer I forgot the box outside in the rain because I was at my grandfather when the rain started.

Hey, you are doing great! Borrow one of you Mom's old pillows and stuff that in the back of the box and you are good for a long time. Then, throw that old box in the trash and do it again!
