Raindrops fall and wood chips fly at Malakwa chainsaw carving exhibition

Cavers brave the elements for inaugural event at the Burner Grille.




Chainsaw artists from throughout the Interior, and as far as Medicine Hat, carved through the rain and the cold in support of The Burner Grille’s inaugural chainsaw carving exhibition in Malakwa, Oct. 6-9. The event was organized by Burner owner Dave Stickle. Participating chainsaw artist Randy Gauthier of Moberly Lake, saw the week as a soft start to what he and his fellow participating carvers want to see become an annual event.

The Burner and local sponsoring businesses pulled together to provide fuel, logs, food and accommodation for the chainsaw artists, who kept at it rain or shine.
