Malakwa’s The Burner to host chainsaw carving exhibition

Event to host a variety of talent from B.C. and Alberta.

The Burner owner Dave Stickle is organizing a chainsaw carving exhibition for Oct. 6 to 9.

The Burner Restaurant is gearing up to host a chainsaw carving exhibition, Oct. 6 to 9.

Owner Dave Stickle, who reopened the landmark Malakwa restaurant earlier this year with Shannon Neubauer, says the event will host a variety of talent from B.C. and Alberta. He’s also looking for any local talent who might be interested in taking part.

“Anybody with anything to do with chainsaws, come one come all,” said the restaurateur and chainsaw enthusiast.

Stickle says the chainsaw event will be, in part, a tribute to the building’s former owner, Ray Hanson, who had the vision to transform move and rebuild the old beehive burner as a restaurant.

Some of the stars of the chainsaw exhibition include Randy Gauthier of Moberly, B.C., Marina Cole of Medicine Hat, Alta., Micheal Penny of Fernie, B.C., Liam Tromans from Nova Scotia – now living on Vancouver Island, Adam Youngblut of Vancouver Island and Darren Smith of Elnora, Alta.

Kids can also try their hand at carving, not logs but pumpkins, on Saturday, Oct. 8., and Stickle is planning on cooking up some deep fried turkeys on Saturday to help celebrate Thanksgiving.

The event will also be an opportunity to pick up an original piece of chainsaw carved art.

Anyone wishing to participate in the event, or who might be able to pitch in, are encouraged to contact Stickle at 780-446-8533.
