Braemar & Open
Women throwers use a stone that weighs usually between 11 and 13 pounds. This is the heavier of the two stone events and must be made from a standing position for three attempted throws. The throwing area is a box 4'6" wide and 7'6" long. The thrower must keep one foot inside the throwing area and not step over the back line or across the trig into the field.
Women throwers use a lighter stone for the open throw that weighs between 8 and 9 pounds. Throwers are allowed to make an open approach to the trig of any style for three attempts as long as the same boundaries are maintained as listed above.
