What to do on a Saturday....

Anything that doesn't fit into the other three catagories

Go watch strapping young men in kilts throw heavy stuff around. (and ignore the announcer when, after five hours, he mentions how old they are because then you just feel really icky and dirty.)

Good times...

Ok, so there were a few legal ones.

Image


Haggis for lunch
Image

Weight for distance
Image

Image

Hammer throw - that's a 16 pound weight at the end
Image

Image


Shief toss - a bag of hay weighing 16 pounds thrown with a pitch fork
Image

Image

Image

Caber toss - about 16 feet long and weighing over 100 pounds
Image

this one finally did fall
Image

Heavy weight for height
Image

Image

When it was all over, I talked them into letting me go up the ladder to shoot down at someone tossing a shief up towards me. I was at the top of the latter, with one of the pro level guys flinging the 16 pound bag over the bar at me... 24 feet in the air at the top of an extension ladder. Cool pictures though!

Oh yeah, there were pipers there too...

And where are these men-fests held? :popcorn2: Because my Saturdays are nothing like this.

Is this the "official" haggis-eatin' position? And why isn't he wearing a kilt? :giggle:

And I'm w/Joyce... MY Saturdays suck compared to yours. :bs: :nono:

lol Count me in for sucky non-man-filled Saturdays as well!

Too many of those strapping lads were not regimental - I saw shorts peeking out. Tsk tsk.

This must have been a spectical to see! I've always wanted to check one of these "man fests" out. I was wondering where Demo's skirt was as well! That's a pretty funny picture anyway!

They are all over the place. Look up "Scottish Festival" or "Highland Games" online.
