This event was not only fun but benefited a great cause.  All proceeds went to benefit the Make a Wish Foundation.  In the main event carvers did relief carving into old growth Red Wood.  There were 4 quick carve competitions also in which Jack placed 1st on Thursday and Sunday, 2nd on Friday and 3rd place on Saturday in his division.   Below Jack works on his main event piece.

At the end of the competition on Sunday there was a motorcycle event where all the carvers grabbed their live chain saws and stood under the ramp where cyclist jumped over them.  They did many stunts including this one called the Kiss of Death!
