The logging show

Logging Ma n Pa2

This weekend is the Clallam County Fair and yesterday was the logging show. For the uninitiated (me, for instance), the show is focused on competitive skills: we watched sawing and axe throwing. What you see here is “Jack and Jill” two person manual sawing. Simply said, the couple is timed as they saw through a log as fast as possible. It’s like an instant snapshot metaphor of marriage in action.

Logging is part of the local history and heritage here. I’ll show you more of the action tomorrow.

  1. Who would think? A logging show? I don’t think we have those down this away. Your right about working together in a marriage…y’all better push and pull at the right time! Looks like fun, though.

  2. The country fair season has just begun here. Competitions like this vary across the country. A logging competition fits with PNW.

    And, no, Meryl was not there on Thursday night, so I don’t know how she reacts to very good meals.

  3. Our state fair starts in a few days and I’m sure that there will be similar activities there, too. Those men are good team worker, but it looks too vigorous for me.
