The free competition is open to everyone, and all tools and materials will be supplied. Non-cash prizes will be awarded for men, women, mixed and youth events. Visitors will get the chance to sample homemade baked beans and famous brown bread at the Royal Oak Stamp Mill, across the road from the sawmill.
