Game Day Activities

TUG OF WAR

In Scotland, is more than a sport.   The Scottish Tug of War Association was formed in 1980 and included in Highland Games.  According to Craig Petch a Staff Sergeant for the 15th Signals Regiment, Braemar, "Tug of war is 50 percent skill and fitness, 50 percent thinking you're gonna win it. It's a team sport. You're only as strong as your weakest man"

HAGGIS TOSS

The story of haggis hurling tells of a wife preparing a haggis for her husband’s lunch while he was out working in the fields or cutting peat. In the presence of rivers and bogs, the wife encountered many obstacles.  To save time finding a suitable crossing point, the wife would toss the cooked haggis over obstacles for her husband to catch with the front apron of his kilt. Dropping it would mean haggis coated with dirt for lunch.
