Dan, if you're carrying your cell, or Mikey is, PM me a number and I'll call you up tomorrow sometime.

Aside from that, here are a few pics of this stuff:

The 28# weight for distance




The 22# Scottish hammer, and the caber

The obligatory "Damn I look big in a kilt and for slacking off on training for a long time" pic



And no wisecracks about my fondness for non-paleo and the apparent resistance I have to fat loss via an IF.

Because, I had only had a protein shake, coffee, and a banana to fuel the entire day (lots of water), and was going strong. I bonked hard after about 19 maximal throws of that damn WOB (which was the last event). 1-19 were strong, 20 and I was broken out into a complete sweat, and 21 showed a noticable decrease in my throwing height.

Where did you get the kilt from? Did they let you rent/ borrow it? There is a HG in IA that I am contemplating about participating in.

Thanks

I got my kilt from Stillwater Kilts, who did an absolute awesome job in shipping it quickly. I'd recommend them. Sportkilt is another company.

A low end kilt is going to run about $45 at Stillwater. I went up the next level and spent $80, but I should get some good use out of it.

What, no mention of the whiskey? Ale?
What kind of highland games were these?

We drank some Busch Lite Draft out of 22oz cans starting during the WOB. The throwers tell me sometimes it's a drinking games, and sometimes it's not.

Third place for someone who

did some throwing with the Master of the House of Hurt, Kip Miller, at his place, so I won't look like a total dick.
is pretty impressive.
