4 year old caber-tosser proves the Highland Games are in his blood!

Jamie Arthur is only four years old and he loves tossing the caber. His mom says, “All he talks about is the Highland Games.” Jamie started “giving a toss” when he was three and now his dad, Ben, has cut and peeled Jamie’s second caber. The first caber is now tossed with ease; the second one (shorter but heavier) is still a challenge.
For everyone who’s a Scot, for those who wish they were, and for anyone who appreciates great value for their dollar, the 72nd Red Deer Highland Games will be held at the Westerner on Saturday, July 22. See https://www.reddeerhighlandgames.com/ for everything you need to know.
