WOODCHOP: There may have been only four wood­chop­pers com­pet­ing at the Biggen­den Show this year, but there was still plenty of ac­tion in the arena for pa­trons to watch.

Pros­ton’s Craig Wag­ner has been chop­ping at Biggen­den for 30 years.

He said he en­joyed com­pet­ing at the coun­try shows.

“They are all friendly and it’s the ca­ma­raderie af­ter­wards that is most en­joy­able,” he said

Coal­stoun Lakes’ cham­pion ax­e­man Danny Staib said some of the usual chop­pers were work­ing while oth­ers had out­side com­mit­ments.

Staib won the show A-grade cham­pi­onship from Craig Wag­ner and Mount Perry’s Kurt Din­gle.

The chop­pers are now look­ing to­wards the Gin Gin Show in the com­ing weeks and the Royal Bris­bane Show in Au­gust.
