The competition will be held over 4 hours followed by judging, the Prize Giving Ceremony and then the Grand Auction.

The Competition: each competitor will draw for logs, that will measure about 8ft x 22", probably of Sitka Spruce, and then the 4 hour clock starts, no extra time will be allowed before the judging. All competitors must wear safety gear, and must take care to protect themselves and the public at all times. Only chainsaws may be used during the competition. Help can be obtained to move the timber if required.

In addition to the main event competitors will also be asked to participate in a Quick Carve event where they are given 30 minutes to prepare a small carving. All proceeds from the auction of the Quick Carve pieces will then go to benefit the local community.

Please see the Event & Competition Rules page for details of the competition and rules.


The Judging; Five judges will mark out of 10 and the carver with the highest score out of a possible 50 points will be declared the winner, the chief judge will have the casting vote in the event of a draw. All pieces will be judged on technical difficulty and artistic merit.
