Chainsaw Competiton
August 10-13, 2017 at Manitou Beach

The event will be held in the Resort Village of Manitou Beach, SK August 10-13, 2017. This bi-annual event will be the only professional carving competition of this nature in Saskatchewan and our objective is to make it a marquis event for the province.

An added attraction at the event is Kat Spencer, a professional Lumber Jill, who will be performing her axe throwing skills. We also will be engaging our sponsors by having them compete in an axe throwing competition. Kat will tutor sponsors who have donated $500 or more, and will oversee the competition. Another feature of the event will be a 'quick cut' competition.
Carvers will be allotted time on Friday evening and these smaller carvings will be displayed on a pedestal in front of each carvers station for the entirety of the event for the purpose of conducting a silent auction. Half the proceeds from this auction will go to Camp Easter Seal and half will go to the carver. The event will conclude with an awards banquet Sunday evening.

We also plan to have a beer garden, a bouncy castle for kids, and a water boiling competition.
