After years of development, Puhoi Axemen’s Club has a group of teenage choppers ready to put on their best performance yet.
Around 10 youngsters will compete at the Puhoi Woodchopping Carnival in the novice underhand event. Puhoi Axemen’s Club president John Sanderson says six of them are from the local club and have been fine tuning their skills for some time.
“They’ve all been involved with the club for a number of years and have been working hard on their chopping since they could start wielding an axe a few years ago,” John says. “All of them train regularly. We’re expecting a strong display from the novices across the board.”
In addition to the Puhoi event, the young choppers will compete at a number of other chopping events across Northland and Auckland this summer.
The Puhoi club welcomes people of all ages to join.
