Caber Toss at the Highland Games

A man competes in the caber toss. The aim of the caber toss is accuracy, not distance. From the games' website: "The competitor delivers his throw at 6 o'clock. He tosses the caber so that it lands in the centre of the dial. A perfect throw is one which goes straight over, with the light end landing at 12 o'clock precisely." The gunshot heard about 10 seconds in was to signal the start of a race somewhere else on the grounds. I hope. Filmed at the Highland Games in Pitlochry, Scotland on Saturday September 11, 2010.
