log rolling and tree falling competition in macedon

Here's somewhere to go this weekend that could prove to be very entertaining, and perhaps, educational as well.
The 29th annual Macedon Center Community Lumberjack Festival, September 10 and 11, includes log rolling, two-man crosscut and tree falling. Gates open at 8 a.m. Saturday and Sunday at the Macedon Center Firemen's Field. Amateur competitions begin at 9 a.m. Saturday; the New York State Professional Lumberjack Association-sanctioned competition kicks off at 10:30 a.m. Sunday. Admission is $3 ($2 for seniors; $1 for ages 6 to 14; free for ages 5 and younger). Call (315) 986-3732 or go to macedoncenterfire.org.
