First prize was $10,000. The contest started with each carver selecting a log upon arrival. All the work had to be done on site during the Carvers Rally in the Valley.
Second place was $2000 and Stihl chainsaws were the prizes for third through fifth place.
The week-long rally concluded with an auction of the competition pieces that started at noon on Sunday. Admission was free and visitors were welcome all week. Carvers are taking chainsaw sculptures to a new level.
