There are different ways to use a caber : just have a look at these photos!
Either you carry it or you toss it. It just depends where you come from.
But this is just the same in Bressuire :
There are the people who carry it and we call them the Bockers…
And there are the people who are going to toss it : they are the professionnal throwers
But there are other categories :
The people just like Jean-Louis COPPET who carefully look after them...
And also those like Franck POUHET who just saw them when necessary .
It can help throwers to toss the caber and -who knows ? get a 12 o’clock throw
