Events

Hammer Throw


The modern or Olympic hammer throw is an athletic throwing event where the object is to throw a heavy metal ball attached to a wire and handle. The name, "hammer throw", is derived from older competitions where an actual sledge hammer was thrown. Such competitions are still part of the Scottish Highland Games where the implement used is a steel or lead weight at the end of a cane handle.

Caber Toss


The caber toss is a traditional Scottish athletic event practised at the Scottish Highland Games involving the tossing of a large wooden pole called a caber, similar to a telephone pole or power pole. It is said to have developed from the need to toss logs across narrow chasms to cross them. In Scotland the caber is usually made from a Larch Pine tree. A caber typically is 19 feet 6 inches (5.94m) tall and weighs 175 pounds (79 kg).

Pipes & Drums


A pipe band is a musical ensemble consisting of pipers and drummers. The term used by military pipe bands "pipes and drums" is also common.

The most common form of pipe band, the Scottish pipe band, consists of a section of pipers playing the Great Highland Bagpipe, a section of snare drummers often referred to as "side drummers" several tenor drummers and one or two bass drummers. The entire drum section is known collectively as the drum corps. The tenor drummers and bass drummer are referred to collectively as the "bass section" or in North America as the "midsection". The band follows the direction of the pipe major; when on parade the band may be led by a drum major who directs the band with a mace.

Standard instrumentation for a pipe band involves 6 to 25 pipers, 3 to 10 side drummers, 1 to 6 tenor drummers and 1 bass drummer. Typically in concert settings instrumentation is augmented to include additional instruments such as additional percussion instruments or keyboard instruments.
