This entire contest is extremely time sensitive. When a contestants number is called, they will have 2 minutes to get to the event arena or time will automatically start.
There will be no limitations on size or specifications of what chainsaw each contestant chooses to use for the entire contest. Keep in mind there will be an event that is more beneficial to have a lighter saw, and events where it will be more beneficial to have a heavier saw. Whatever saw each contestant decides to use for the entire contest, that will be the one and only chainsaw allowed for the day. Contestants will be allowed to share chainsaws, however, there will be no extra time allowed when your number is called, for sharpening or any type of service. Once the 2 minutes is up after the contestant is called, the time will start, ready or not.
No bitching. This is a fun event and the registration has been kept to a minimum (considering the large prizes) so we can all enjoy the day.

AGAIN, CONTESTANTS AGREE THEY ACCEPT FULL LIABILITY FOR THE ENTIRE CONTEST. Contestants agree that they are held responsible for all of their own property regardless of circumstance or situation.
