Hercules Hold

  • Athletes will hold as long as possible; longest time wins.
  • No grip aids allowed.
  • Mouser Power’s Deep Waters Hercules Holds will be used. Available at www.mouserpower.com

 

Weight Over Bar

  • Athletes will throw a traditional Highland Games weight with one hand over a bar that rises higher each round. Highest throw wins.
  • Athletes will have 60sec to get the weight over any given height. If unsuccessful, the athlete is at that point eliminated. Athlete may also be asked to exit the field if the referee feels he/she is stalling.
  • 3 heights allowed per competitor
  • Standing throw only; spinning techniques are not allowed

 

Stones of the North

  • When Bill Kazmaier went to Scotland to lift the Inver Stone, the original challenge was simply to hoist to chest height. Kaz, not satisfied with this, took it up to his massive shoulders, and then pressed it overhead. The Stones of the North honor this feat.
  • Athlete with have 60sec to load, shoulder, or press an Atlas Stone as many times as possible.
  • Loading is worth 1 point. Shouldering the stone is worth 5 points. Pressing the stone is worth 20 points! Most points wins.
  • No tacky. No spray tack. No tacky towels. Do it like our ancestors did for thousands of years.

 

Pole Push

  • Athletes will have 30sec to try to maneuver their opponent outside of the 20ft border circle by pushing against a 10ft pole that both athletes are holding onto.
  • Athletes may not physically contact each other, touch any part of the body except the feet to the ground, or leave the border circle, lest the bout be awarded to the opponent. Pulling is also prohibited.
  • The exact tournament format will be determined once the entries are all received, but we will do our best to make sure everyone gets to face more than one opponent. (winner/loser bracket style)
  • Sleeves, a single belt, gloves, and wrist wraps are legal. Cleats are prohibited. Boots are recommended because regular shoes may blow out. It happened people, it happened.

 

Tire Toss

  • 30sec to make a single attempt. 3 attempts total allowed.
  • Spinning is legal. No part of the body may touch the ground beyond the trig.
  • Furthest distance wins.

 

Mouser Block Carry

  • 60 sec to finish the course, fastest time wins
  • No drops allowed, if you drop, you will be credited with distance
  • 40ft up and 40 ft back. That’s 80ft total for those of you counting at home!

 

 

 

 

General Rules/Usual Mouser Stuff

  • In the event of a tie in the final standings, a tie breaker event will be held. No countback absolutely necessary!
  • Sportsmanship is expected and required. This is the greatest sport in the world, let’s keep it that way.
  • This is a drug free contest. If you are juiced feel free to come cheer on your buddies but please do not bother to sign up.
  • If you have a question, please ask! I would rather take a minute to clarify something than to see someone have a poor showing due to a misunderstanding.
