Well maybe this should be subtitled "Afters". This is a shot of the woodchop section of the Redcliffe Showgrounds following our recent show, The stands that you can see all in a row are where the Logs are held in place while sundry individuals assault them with axes. The last Woodchop competition that I attended (Atherton North Queensland)there was a young 23 year old who thought he was the greatest thing since sliced bread, but on the day he came up against a former, World Champion who in spite of being 72 years old looked in good nick to me, and as the bookies were offering 10 -1 against him winning, I thought it was worth a $20 bet, and really it was the easiest $200 I ever made cause I didn't even need to lift the axe. The old guy had finished and was just licking the paper on his rollie when the young guy came back to earth - With a Thud!
