Brief description: Include any student preparation needed

Have you ever wanted to throw an axe at a target, make firewood, or use a 7-foot-long saw? Dartmouth Timber Team is a collegiate timber sports club that does just that (think old timey lumberjack skills). We practice out at Oak Hill with experienced students leading the group in making wood smaller. You'll learn fun and responsible ways to use axes, mauls, saws, peaveys, and more! No prior experience required to participate in practices. Practice attendance is required to participate in competitions.
