The Sydney Royal Woodchopping & Sawing Competition Day 1: The competitors wore Volleys!

The modern sport of woodchopping is said to have had it’s origin in 1870 in Ulverston, Tasmania as the result of a £25 bet between two axemen as to who would be the first to fell a tree.

The timber for competition is all grown in the NSW far south coast town of Eden. Each axe costs between $600 and $700. The competitors on Day 1 were all wearing volleys!
