Logging competitions see more ladies

Posted: Updated:
FAIR HAVEN, Vt. - Hundreds turned out in Fair Haven for lumberjack competition. It's not just for the guys. Event organizers say the sport growing among women.

Young and old came out Saturday to watch 16 competitors on the town green in Fair Haven. Five of them were women. Those who compete regularly say they see an increasing number of females at the events.

"This sport is definitely growing amongst women, back in the early seventies there were women who would do the cross cut events and then we started to get women doing some of the chopping events, and now, it is really growing," said competitor Peg Engasser.

Organizers say everyone goes home with at least a small cash prize.
