Canada or US and then providence or state?   266 sounded good.

New Brunswick Canada. This the second year they had this event last year the logs was strapped to a trailer this year they had a stand built.



They plan on having it every year hopefully it gets bigger and better. With more saws. They added an open class at the last minute so my dolmar could run and the Husky 390xp.  7.9 sec for the husky and 8.2 for the dolmar It was a fun day just wish i would of notice my camera was set to quality videos lol

I like those wooden stands, that would be fun making them then having a run after with a nice hot saw,,,,,, lovely.

This is how I build my log stands here in northern Manitoba, only the best will do ;) Solid steel and 4 inch cargo straps tightened with a 4 ft winch bar ......rules.
  Wooden saw horses with wimpy straps is only for wishful thinkers. ;D
   Two 16 foot cants side by side and as you notice they get pretty short by the time the women get their turn...... :D
BTW we go through four 16 ft cants during an afternoon for the men's/women's speed cutting .
