Rules to play Caber Toss
If the thrower picks up the caber and has to set it back on the ground, this counts as one of his three tries. In official games, competitors must wear a kilt, hose and flashes. Flashes are worn around the top of the hose, inside the cuff, and help keep the hose in place. Scottish clothing can be waived by a games official for novice and first-time throwers.
