Open Stone: The stone shall be putt from the shoulder with one hand only. Once the competitor takes a stance to commence a putt, the stone shall touch or be in close proximity to the neck or chin, and the hand shall not be dropped below this position during the act of putting.The stone must not at any time be brought behind the line of the shoulders.
Braemar Stone: The stone shall be putt from the shoulder with one hand only. Once the competitor takes a stance to commence a putt, the stone shall touch or be in close proximity to the neck or chin, and the hand shall not be dropped below this position during the act of putting.The stone must not at any time be brought behind the line of the shoulders. No approach is allowed
Weight for Distance Throws: The competitor may use either hand to throw the weight, but only one hand may be used. Any style may be used to throw the weight as long as it is deemed safe by the judge. The competitor may start and stop their throw provided that no part of the implement has made contact with the ground or the trig board during the aborted attempt. If the implement has made contact with the ground or the trig board after the attempt was initiated and prior to receiving permission from the judge, then the attempt will be a foul.
Hammer Throws: The hammer shall be thrown in a standing style. Although some movement of the feet prior to the release is allowed, there shall be no approach and the competitor is not allowed to spin the body. The competitor in the starting position, prior to the preliminary swing, is permitted to rest the head of the hammer on the ground on either side of the trig, or on the trig board itself. It shall not be considered a foul throw if the hammer touches the ground beyond the trig or the trig itself at the beginning of an attempt. After initiating the swings it shall be a foul if any part of the hammer touches the ground beyond the trig, or the trig itself.
Weight Over Bar: The competitor may use either hand to toss the weight, but only one hand may be used. The competitor must make a standing throw (either in traditional standing style or with the side sling style). Spinning throws are not allowed.
Sheaf Toss: The toss is made using a pitchfork with a 5-foot nominal handle. Any style may be used to toss the sheaf as long as it is deemed safe by the judge. Competitors may bring their own pitchforks but it is understood that any competitor may use any pitchfork that will be used in the competition
Caber Toss: The competitor may take any length of run he wishes and may toss the caber from where he chooses, as long as it is within the judge’s boundaries. If the competitor allows the caber to fall before lifting it off the ground, this shall count as an attempt. If the competitor drops the small end of the caber back to the ground after having picked it up, this also counts as an attempt. The caber must pass through the vertical position in order to count as a turned caber. The vertical position is 90 degrees and it is up to the side judge to determine if the caber has passed through it. The “clock face method” of judging shall be used. The caber in a perfect toss will pass through the vertical position and land with the small end pointing directly at 12 o’clock in an imaginary straight line extending from the competitor through the initial landing point and in line with the direction of the run. A valid turn is when the small end of the caber passes through the vertical position and falls away from the competitor to land within the 180-degree radius, between 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock. If the competitor does not turn the caber, then it is the responsibility of the side judge to determine the angle at which the caber was tossed with respect to the 90 degree vertical.
