Maide Leisg, Scots-Gaelic for "lazy stick"


* A game descended from Vikings, adopted by the Yakuts in the Sakha Republic of Russia, and spread around the World by bored sailors.

* One of the greatest tests of two people's functional strength; fighting over a stick for all the glory!

* Athletes sit in front of each other heel to heel, prop their feet againt a wooden board, and pull on a stick. (Highland Games traditionally use a swingletree, a wooden shaft used to connect a cart to a horse harness).

* Strength, agility, speed, and leverage all play a roll in this sport.

This is what it's all about: A couple of spectators at the Tucson Celtic Festival giving something new a try.  We'd say they had quite a bit of fun!
