Berry Show cancelled,
but the woodchop
is still a GO.

23 January 2022

While the Berry Show Society had to make the difficult decision to cancel their 2002 Show, the Shoalhaven Council have granted the South Coast & Tablelands Axemen's Association (SC&TAA) permission to run the woodchop on Saturday 29 January. But this will not be without a few minor changes to the program.

Unfortunately the Friday portion of the program, three events in total, has been cancelled. Saturday's events will remain virtually unchanged, with 17 of the 18 classes proceeding. The only casualty on the day will be the Medley Relay which will no longer be contested.

Competitors please contact the SC&TAA if you have questions in regards to your entries.

A heartfelt thank you from the Hayden Family

02 December 2021

On behalf of the family, I’d like to thank the NSWAA for the beautiful flowers that were sent to dad’s memorial service. They were absolutely beautiful and we appreciate your thoughtfulness and consideration during this difficult time. Dad absolutely loved woodchopping and being in the arena with all of his friends. We have lots of fond memories watching dad and it was lovely to see so many axemen at his memorial service. Please feel free to contact us if you ever need assistance.
