First-ever log splitting contest in downtown Hillsboro, Illinois

  • 0

Participants in the first-ever contest put their wood chopping skills to the test by seeing how fast they could split various sized logs into smaller pieces with an ax and then stack them into a pile. The event was hosted by Atlas 46, Imagine Hillsboro, the City of Hillsboro and Hardcore Hammers. The chopped firewood will be donated to local organizations in need through a collaboration with Lifeline Community Church and the City of Hillsboro.
