Default Chainsaw Wood Carving Exhibitions/Competitions

I just conducted a successful Ice Carving Contest in Newport, RI and have been asked to check on the possibilities of conducting a wood carving one in mid-April. Would appreciate any thoughts and advice. Email: trowley@cox.net

I attend a chainsaw competition every year on Vancouver Island in British Columbia Canada. There are various catagories that they consider, Beginner,Novice, Amature,Semi-Pro and Professional. What they do is supply the wood and you carve for 4 days. Once the competition is over prizes are awarded in each catagory. Then the carvings are the property of the town of Campbell River where they are placed in various locations and maintained by the town. In fact local business's adopt carvings for the year for the sum of $100.00 and it is their responsibility to maintain the carving for a year. Campbell river now in its 7th year of competition has over 150 carvings placed around the town. Great Tourist attraction and sponsered somewhat by the town. If you would like to check out their site it is http://www.crshorelinearts,com.
Hope this has helped I attend every year so if you want any more help please feel free to email me.
Great minds speak about idea's. Small minds speak about people.
