Ha cants .I remember one of the first GTG's I went to was early in the fall .Late cut cotton wood just full of water . Those danged cants were as  heavy as oak .About like cutting into a big sponge ,water just flew .

I filed a couple race chains and all I had soft to test them in was half cry tulip poplar ,ooh wee cut like a million bucks .Proud as   peafowl so off I went .In that water logged cotton wood I think they might have done better had I put them on backwards . :D

Bill are you going to do 2 cuts for all classed this year?  That would be 4" of wood per saw run. Well for most of us it would be, some take 6" per cookie.  :D

Depending how big of a turn out you have. I used to do 3 cuts and get 4-6 8 and 4-5 10 . You wont need that much IMO.

The last cants I bought were $25 for 8x8x8' and in the $40 range for 10x10x8' I use Rick Hawkins lumber and he is southeast of me about a hour and half. So he should be about 30mins to 45mins NE of you. He and his family are racers so he will know what kind of cants you will want.

I would guess depending on turn out. up to 3 8x8 4 classes and 2 10x10 3 classes.

Just take and lay them on a tarp and then wrap or cover them with a tarp and out of the sun.

Got a call in today to a local guy to see about cutting them. Used the Amish last time. Since I have plenty of time I might be able to source my own logs and have them milled local. I do have mills right down the road a few miles. So lots of options local. I was thinking 2 cuts like you said unless this gets more serious. I would like to have at least 6ea of both sizes.

I wasn't at the last one but time before they got to cutting the cants a little too early on .Fact we ran the 80 cc in 10 by's I think because they cut up all the 8 by 8's prematurely .No big deal I guess ,stuff happens . :)

OK I'm going to through out a date and see where it goes. June 2nd. Hope that works for most people. We can still change it if the masses see a better date.

LOL your real funny LOL  ;) at that rate I wouldnt see another 17 asking something like that. You have to remember I have raced at county fairs, street  fairs, all kinds of festivals in state and out of state and not once has that made her anymore interested in watching chainsaw cut wood.  :D :D
