Butcher Block Chop

Teams of three competitors take turns chopping through a massive block of cottonwood (22 – 26 inches). Not only must they be fast, they also have to be accurate – each competitor must take a minimum of eight swings but no more than 12 to get through the log in the shortest time possible.

Squamish Days has challenged the competitors even further on occasion, by holding a two man butcher block, with competitors taking turns chopping through an 18 – 20 inch block of cottonwood.
