The Caber Toss
The caber toss is a traditional Scottish game where competitors toss a large tapered pole called a “caber” It is the prized Jem at the Scottish Highland Games. In Scotland, the caber is usually made from a larch tree and it can be up to 20 feet tall and weigh 90–150 pounds. The objective is to toss the caber so that it turns end over end, falling away from the tosser. The goal is for it to fall directly away from the tosser in the “12 o’clock” position. The distance doesn’t matter.
The straightest end-over-end toss scores highest. If the caber lands on its end but falls back towards the thrower, the score is lower than for any end-over-end throw but is based upon the maximum vertical angle that the caber achieved (side-judging may involve a second judge).
End-over-end tosses are scored according to the hours on a clock, with a 12:00 score being highest (falling directly away from the thrower), down to a 9 or 3 for cabers that reach a vertical, before falling to the side.
