Woodchops is a traditional drawcard event seen at all agricultural shows, showcasing the skills of axemen. The woodchop competition is an iconic event acknowledging the rich history of the timber industry. Most of the events being performed evolved from the actual tasks and work-day skills required of axemen just prior to the appearance of the chain saw.

Competitors require strength, a sharp eye, speed and accuracy while using the razor-sharp competition axes. To compete in this years competition, download and complete the Woodchops entry form.
