The Northern Tasmanian Axemen’s Association will conducta come and try day at the Exeter Family Festival Market on Sunday.
Northern Tasmanian Axemen’s Association secretary Amanda Beams.
All required safety equipment and instructions will be provided, with the session to cost $20 per person, required purely to cover insurance purposes, with the session running from 9am-.1pm.
Associationsecretary Amanda Beams said the small fee was only a portion of what it cost to be a competitive woodchopper or sawyer for a season and was a great opportunity for members of the public to try the sport without the expense.
“Our sport is usually only seen at shows and sports carnivals too, so it’s also an opportunity for it to be seen by a different group of people,” Mrs Beams said.
“We’re keen to increase our membership and grow the sport in Tasmania and we believe this is an ideal chance to get a foot in the door, and a necessary stepping stone to achieving our aims,” she said.
The come and try session will be open to anyone over 12 years of age.
Those under 18will require parental consent to participate.
“Once registration and insurance is taken care of, basic tuition will follow in how to chop or saw, as well as safety instructions, after which participants will be given the opportunity to hold and use a racing axe or saw and safely chop wood and saw discs off competition timbers,” Mrs Beams said.
There will be strict monitoring of all equipment and procedures.
Exeter Family Festival Market runs from 9am-3pm.
