Howdy y'all,

I would like to build a Bocce Ball course, and the "oyster flour" is about $1,000 for a cubic yard bag.  So, yeah, that's expensive.

Any ideas for a cheaper, natural building replacement for "oyster flour"?

Also, anyone have plans for building a Bocce Ball court with natural and inexpensive building materials?

Thanks,

Adam

There is such a thing as 'rock flour' here from the quarries.  Our son used it in a construction project.  That's all I know though.....
Either 'flour' sounds dusty, or do you have to wet it down before play?
We play bocce ball on mowed grass...not very smooth and we had to go to a larger ball for the small yellow ball because we would lose it or be unable to see it very well.  We've called that small ball the 'snitch' for so long with the grandkids that I don't remember it's real name

the pollino...had to look it up
 
If you are using a wood chipper, you are doing it wrong. Even on this tiny ad:
