Penn State's Woodsman Team "the PSU Lumber Jacks & Jills" will perform at 2pm. The team sends men's and combined men's and women's teams to compete in New York, West Virginia, Ontario, and Pennsylvania in such events as: Axe Throw, Chain Saw, Pole Climb, Single Buck Saw, Super Swede Saw, Water Boil, Bolt Split, Vertical Chop, Underhand Chop, Cross Cut, Swede Saw, Log Roll, and Pulp Toss.

At 3pm join us to hear the ax's story of hardened steel and hard work. The Ax Whisperer interprets what he hears in the twist of a handle, a dulled edge, a nick or dent--each tell a part of the subtle story of how these most important tools were used and who might have used them.
