Rules to play Caber Toss
Two or three men stand the caber up with the larger end on top and bring it to the thrower. The thrower slowly hoists the caber off the ground, cradles the tapered end in both hands, and balances it against his shoulder. The thrower then runs forward a short distance to build up momentum. Just before the toss, he allows the caber to leave his shoulder, which causes the top end to fall forward. When tossed correctly, the tapered end lands away from the thrower.
