Registration for the championships takes place at Easdale Island Community Hall from 11am on the day itself; if you would like to compete just turn up as there are no qualifying rounds. The competition starts at 12 noon - get down to the quarryside early to avoid the queues!

Categories and entrance fees:
Adult Women and Men (16 and over) - entrance fee: £4
Old Tossers (60 and over) - entrance fee: £3
Junior Girls and Boys (age 10-15 years) - entrance fee: £2
Under 10s Girls and Boys - entrance fee: £1

Anyone of any age and any level of skill can enter. Each competitor is allowed 3 skims using specially selected Easdale slate skimming stones. For a skim to qualify the stone must bounce at least three times - it is then judged on the distance achieved before it sinks.

There will be music on the day from The Shed Inspectors. Films for kids and a very tall clown.
