 Chainsaw Carving


Rules for the Chain Saw Carving:  Carving will start at 12:00 noon.  There is a three hour time limit.  At 3:00 p.m. the carvings will be judged then auctioned off to the public.  The proceeds will go to the individual that created the carving.  Competitors will have the option of excluding their work from the auction.  Wood blocks, random sizes (or competitors can bring their own blocks) will be supplied but competitors must bring their own saws.  All competitors must wear appropriate safety equipment (steel toe boots, safety pants or chaps, and hearing and eye protection).



Speed Saw Cutting Back  for 2010!

 Rules for the Chainsaw Speed Cutting Chainsaws; safety chaps and safety glasses will be supplied by the committee.  All competitors must wear the required safety equipment.  Two competitors will compete at once.  On the signal “competitors ready”, they will place their hands on the chainsaw idling on the ground (competitors do not start the saws).  On the signal “go” they will make three downward cuts through 8” x 8” log (timber).  No upwards direction cuts are allowed.  This event is timed.  The time stops when the last wood disc hits the ground.  Each competitor is allowed two tries (best time kept out of two tries.)
