Loved these things growing up. My folks would throw us kids and a lantern in the car and we would walk all over the beach at night for no reason. Always a blast.

coat hanger stuck in it for a probing rod. a lot more fun
than the way it is now. i think they quit doing it on the beach
to save the dunes.

I was a small kid in the 70's when my father and my uncle had the Goofy Golf Course and arcade on the beach. I remember those boxing matches like they were yesterday and I haven't thought about those in years.
