What I want to know: where is the caber?

I was going to compete in the scottish heavy athletics this year but I have to say, the caber toss scared the heck out of me. something visceral, I could imagine the but of that tree trunk coming up and catching me right under the chin. Lights out I imagine.

For whatever the reason the weight for height was not as scary.
