On this Friday afternoon, the air smells of salty hot chips. Several families are having picnics by the river and the occasional kid in zinc war-paint and boogie board whizzes past you on a squat acrobatic bicycle, on his way to the last surf before dusk. The colony of cockatoos that inhabits town is noisily getting ready to roost on their fig tree and when the band at the Brunswick Hotel fills the air with its tunes, you know that the weekend has started in earnest.
It took Brent Rees 19 hits to split his log and claim the 2015 Hard Hitting Champion title at Brunswick Heads’ woodchop competition last week. http://www.bhwoodchop.com/
