That looks to be about a 1:00 toss. I have watched this before and it is interesting. I wonder how someone came up with this game.

Thanks for viewing, Ted. This was actually in the open competition. The guy doing the toss was just learning. I thought he did very well. The weight tosses are also quite challenging.

I would imagine some smart old guy had logs he needed moved and young men around who did not want to carry them, so he said "Let's make a game of it."

ROTFL.......Steve a wonderful sense of humour. I would opt for the male p&&ssingg contest. You know "My father is bigger than yours!"

Jerry love the shots. and I gotta agree bagpipe music is wonderful in very short sessions. LOL

Nice pictures Jerry. Highland Games are big in Canada, even in the French speaking areas like Montreal.

Nice sequence of shots Jerry. Strange lot, the Scottish (who invented this sport):-)
