Fun Stuff

Before I forget.

I work for Granite State Lumberjack Shows and since about 1993 I have been trimming and preparing wood for the Stihl Timbersports Competition. This includes driving a truck loaded with equipment all over the US and once in Alaska. We even did a show in Munich in 2001.

As far as I know, the 2014 Stihl Timbersports Finals we taped earlier this year at the Scope Arena in Norfolk Va. will be on ABC Sports:

Sunday, Sept. 21 at 5 pm

Sunday, Sept. 28 at 5 pm

Sunday, Oct. 5 also at 5 pm

Who knows, you may spot these old bones on the deck in one of the shots they couldn’t air brush me out of.

I compete in woodsmen’s competitions New England now and then and the only one I can make this year will be the Warner Fall Foliage Festival where they let me help out as well, setting up wood etc.

If you want to come cheer me on or boo the hell out of me this is your best opportunity. Warner has, for a small show, some of the best competitors in the US when it comes to hot saw racing.

An example of hot saw racing would be after taking both hands off the fixed 8x8 white pine cant the competitor grabs a sitting chainsaw starts it and then proceeds to make a down, up, then down cut again in around or under - three seconds.

Below is a piece Stihl did about me several years ago which briefly describes what I do.
