Some of the most important people in this log show never receive a trophy. Seventeen years ago we started something new. A gold engraved axe is awarded in recognition of unselfish work over the years, in furthering the interest of the Deming Logging Show.
In the past years we have auctioned chrome axes, but money can’t buy a Gold Axe. It’s awarded on performance only. This award is made at Sunday’s show. The gold axe is an old time falling axe donated by Larry McPhail.
We place this award very highly. The highest honor we have is to be Bull of the Woods, the second is to serve as President and the third is to receive the Gold Axe.
