Vince is starting Caber Tossing lessons every Saturday morning in order to get a team to represent the gym at the annual Highland Games at Corsair Field in Santa Monica in early April.
Caber Tossing is a Scotch sport in which you throw a 19′ long log end over end. Kent McCord (who plays a police rookie on the TV series Adam 12) has offered to put up an additional $1,000 on former wrestling champion Mike Rowe (U.S.C. Discus Thrower), against 300 lb. wrestler, Billy Graham.
This is a grudge battle to settle a for long disputed contest between these two men. This event is to be staged as part of the 10th Mr. San Fernando Valley Show to be held at Vince’s Gym.
