Please - any help appreciated - I need to make a large number of Rodeo Golf games of differnt colors - is painting something that can be accomplished without it eventually cipping or peeling from normal play? If so - what kind / brand paint should I look for? If painting not an optioon, does anyone know where to purchase pre-colored pipe/tube for making the games?? Please advise & thank you !!

There are plastic spray paints on the market, and if you let them dry (cure) for many days, they will fair well, however, as with any "paint", they will wear with time (ie. scratches & nicks) fromt he bolos hitting the plastic. You can obtain this plastic spray paint at your local hardware store in a multitude of colors.
As for colored PVC, you would have to go through a plastic company, since this would be a specialty item and unless you are buying in bulk, it won't be cost effective. The third option is something that I had seen awhile back from another builder of this game (mainly called Ladder Golf or Hillbilly Golf). He had used a variety of colored films that were applied to each pipe either via heat or a sticky back and that would color the PVC as an overlay. That site is no longer around, so I can't speculate on it any further.
Currently, your best, cost effective bet is spray paint made just for plastic. Krylon makes a good brand.
