Competitors of all ages gathered in the small town's sacred proving grounds with hopes of leaving with a year's worth of bragging rights in their respective categories: chopping, sawing, pole climbing, log rolling or boom running. Live vicariously through their talents—and beards—in the following gallery [Photos by Jake Hanson].
