On July 25th thru the 27th of the Year of Our Lord 2014 the Great Canterbury Games Championships Will Commence.
A Strength Contest of the Highest Magnitude!
Our extreme physical test starts with the "Manhood Stone" 20lbs of sold rock to be hurled to a distance of 30 feet or more.
The contest continues with our "Mill Weights" 28 and 56lbs each with a 9 inch chain whirled about much like a discus. You will hear the warriors scream "Hit Your Power Position"!
"Drive with your right"! "Sink and Pull"! These are the victory songs the chants our warriors must sing to toss over 40 feet the weights we fling.
This test of strength will continue with the "Hammer Toss" 16 and 22lbs a cannon ball supreme! The athlete must stand with his back to the field of battle and heave the cannon ball that is connected to a 55 inch Rattan handle; not once not twice but a spin of thrice is the only way to toss the hammer.
We finish this excellent show of shows with 2 premiere events: The caber toss 21 feet and 140lbs of pure MICHIGAN log. A tree trunk cut out of the woods of Carleton tapered at one end, heavy at the other. Picked so to speak from the ground and carried vertically and then tossed end over end.
Finally we grab the 56lb weight with one hand and throw it over a high bar. (Compared to tossing a 10 year old boy over a double decker bus)
An excellent time will be had by all! An event you cannot miss!
