The Cannon Ball Toss is basically a rock-throwing contest. It was a popular strength testing competition that was held during the original rendezvous.
Scouts and Adult Leaders will have the chance to show their skill and strength just like the original mountain men. There will be individual awards given for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place for Scouts ages 14-15, and Scouts ages 16-17, as well as the Adults.
The rules of the event are simple. The Cannon Ball is an eight Pound Rock. It can be thrown any way so long as it stays in bounds. Each participant will have three throws, and the longest of those three will be recorded. The winners are determined by the longest throw measured where it first lands.
