Doc, you'd probably be pretty good at the local Highland games man....you should check them out. Of course, you'd have to try the Haggis man...everyone loves friggen Haggis, with the lights of course...
I know the event you're speaking of, those poles get upward of 600lb, a solid telephone pole weighs over 1000.
EDIT: a 90' pole weighs over 7800lb.
