No trimming of board holes will be permitted. Competitors must put three spring boards above each other and cut out the front scarf, then descend removing the three spring boards to the ground and put the same three spring boards in on the other side and cut out the back scarf. (Logs must not be cut off from one side.) Any competitor chopping in a previously cut board hole will be disqualified.
The 4 events are limited to experienced axemen and they must state on the entry form whether they are left or right handed.
