Scoring Policy Change

Please note the following policy changes to the database for the 2018 season.

Implement weights and measurements must be verified prior to competition and after any changes to the implement are complete. This includes, but is not limited to, cutting the caber, replacing hammer handles and changing links on the weights.


Caber weights must be based on actual measurements taken and represent the caber entered into the database, not field-side guesses as offered for the audience’s entertainment. This must be done with a calibrated scale and must be done at the competition site on the day of competition. Significant scrutiny will be applied to cabers thrown outside of Canada

Any questions can be forwarded to me. Thanks!

Rob Young,
CSAF President
