Show notes:

Backyard Blackjack Rules:
Set up frame a set distance away from a marker (shooting line), approximately 3 yards/metres.
If the winner of the last round is there, the new player goes first.
The first thrower throws all 3 of their bolas.
The second thrower then throws all 3 of their bolas.
Bolas are collected after the 2nd players throw.
Top bar - 3 points per bola
Middle bar - 2 points per bola
Bottom bar - 1 point per bola
One bola on each bar - 10 points
Winner is first to 21. If players go over their score resets to before their last throw and the rest of their round is forfeit.
