  • Tschärrättu
    “Tschärrättu” is a variant of the sport of Hornussen. The “Tschärrätt” is hit as far as possible out into the field using a stick (Tschärrättschtäkn). The distance of the hit is measured.
  • Leffel Pfyl schiässen
    In spring, especially in Kippel, hand-carved arrows are thrown using a throwing whip. You need good motor skills, a good throwing technique and intent. The arrow is fastened to the whip. There is an indentation for this in the middle of the arrow. The whip is stretched across both hands and is thrown with the momentum of upper body movement. The distance of the throw is measured.
  • Mischlu
    “Mischlu” is a variant of the game of skittles. Six split pieces of wood (“Mischla” 60-70cm in size) are set out in a row. The thrower now tries to knock over the pieces of wood with a stick (Wurfmischla). Everyone gets three tries to knock down the skittles. The person who knocks down the most “Mischlä” is the winner.
  • “Ring loifen”
    This form of skilled running with a wheel and a stick requires a feeling for the right tempo and some elbow grease.
    An old bicycle wheel (without the tyre) is pushed along using a “Holzschtäkn” (a wooden stick about 30cm long) and ushered through a simple course to the finish line. The person who completes the course in the fastest time is the winner.
  • Naglu
    Nails are bashed into a block with a special hammer. The winner is the person who hammers the nails into the block with the fewest strikes.
  • Burdi-Seil-Triäglu gufru
    A loose Burdi rope is thrown onto a Lötschentaler “Tschäggättu”. The person whose rope lands the closest to the Lötschentaler mask has won. “Triäggla” measuring point – the stick of the mask.
