Axemen in fine form at Cromwell
Axemen descend on CromwellCHE BAKER IN CROMWELL
Wood chopping competitors from across the lower South Island have sharpened their axes to take part in the 2nd Cromwell Town and Country Club wood chopping competition in Cromwell today.
A total of 21 competitors from Southland, Otago, the West Coast and Canterbury are competing in the event as well as one axeman from Wales.
New Zealand under-21 wood chopping representative Brad Pako, of Cromwell, said it was always a pleasure to be able to compete in front of a home crowd.
However, he was feeling "a bit of pressure" to perform after having a month break from the sport.
