ILLUSTRATING just how far he has come in his early competitive woodchopping career, Bombala’s Aaron Girvan has been invited to take part in the axeman events of the Royal Adelaide Show.
Aaron has been accepted to participate in the Junior Round Robin contest which is open to competitors between 12 and 18 years, with the event being designed to encourage and develop new talent.
The young local woodchopper was selected based on his performance at the Sydney Royal Easter Show earlier this year, where he won the Junior Development 1st Division.
His events will kick off on September 9, and Aaron will cut both underhand and standing block throughout the rounds.
Aaron is now busily training in order to give his best throughout the Adelaide Show woodchopping events, while he and his family are also working on fundraising for the week long trip.
