Renaissance Festival and Caber Tossing

tags: MRF, caber toss, Lisa

For the third consecutive year, my friends and i went to the Renaissance Festival. This year's group (about a dozen people, described later) was a bit different from last years. This weekend was the Scottish Weekend and sadly i didn't have a kilt yet. Caber Tossing was brought to the Festival as a special event.

Lisa had a huge — 20 foot long, 8 inch wide diameter — branch fall in her backyard. We bought a bow saw to break it down for firewood and disposal. In honor of the Scots i cut it into a lanky looking caber. We'll post dimensions and pictures soon.

I'm gonna try turning it sometime soon. I have a feeling those who watched the tournament at the Renn Fest will want a try, so we'll keep it around for a while.

We learned that scoring of caber tosses is not based on distance, but instead on straightness. A hay, bet ya didn't know that. We learn something new every day.
