The 2012 Anson Ag Expo & Fair will once again host the South Atlantic Woodsmen’s Association (SAWA) Lumberjack Competition on Sept. 22 at the Lockhart-Taylor Center in Wadesboro. Beginning at 12:30 p.m., the event will continue throughout the afternoon.
The day will feature several exciting lumberjack events. Competition events slated for the day include Axe Throwing, Underhand Chop, Standing Block Chop, Single Buck Saw, Springboard Chop and Stock Saw.
Winners of individual events will be announced at the end of the day and an overall winner of the Wadesboro competition will be named. Throughout the fast paced SAWA competition, announcers will involve the audience in trivia questions, giveaways, forest education and games for the kids.
When the competition is over, the lumberjacks will be glad to sign autographs for SAWA fans young and old on the “cookies” cut from the competition logs. Anson native Logan Scarborough will be among the lumberjacks competing and signing autographs.
The Anson Ag Expo & Fair would like to thank the following generous sponsors of the Wadesboro SAWA Lumberjack Competition: Anson County Tourism Development Authority, Anson Wood Products, Plank Road Forestry and Wadesboro Rotary Club.
