The society has just one contest, individual and team, called "The launch of the Ruzzolone". It takes place on a 500 m track. The game consists in throwing a wooden disc of a diameter of 26 cm and weighing 2 kg. The disc is wrapped in a cord and made to roll with a kind of whipping movement. The contestant who rolls the disc the farthest, and reaches the finish line first, wins.
