2017 Results Press Release

FIRST TIME LUCKY FOR LITHUANIAN CARVER
CARVE CARR-BRIDGE CHAINSAW EVENT RESULTS

 

Carve Carr-Bridge 2017 0033-1800

It was first time lucky at Carve Carrbridge today (2nd September) for new entrant Raimondas Uzdravis as he practically swept the board at the annual chainsaw carving competition.

The first Lithuanian carver to ever take to the field at Carve Carrbridge, Raimondas not only won the top prize – the coveted Claymore Trophy and a brand new eco-friendly Stihl electric chainsaw donated by Stihl UK – as voted for by a panel of judges, he also won the Carvers Choice (also receiving the new Abb Henderson Trophy) AND the Best New Entrant. The new face on the field carved an intricate dragon which wowed the judges and spectators alike.

This year's runner up was seasoned Carve Carrbridge entrant Tim Burgess with 'Good Knight' and third place and also winning the Peoples Choice award was former champion Pete Bowsher with his golfer 'Four Carrbridge'.

Organisers are still to confirm the days attendance but it's thought to have been a record breaking turn out for the 15th Carve Carrbridge with almost 4,000 through the gate, all of them keen to see what the carvers can make from a piece of Sitka Spruce 22 inches in diameter and eight foot long – in only four hours! And as always, the results were amazing!
