The Pacific Toyota Big Dig & Diddy Dig

Only in Kawerau will you see the amazing sight of extreme Woodchip shoveling.

Will the Hubbards Razorbacks defend their World Champ title in 2017? or will we see another crew take out the title.

Teams will shovel it out for supremacy, with 4 (1 rolling sub permitted) team members attempting to shovel 3 cubic metres of locally produced wood chip into a giant ‘Foote’ bin and all before the other team.

The equation is simple – do it faster than your opponents and you will go through to the next knockout round and eventually earn a final berth in a winner takes all.

The winners will cash in a massive $1000 for their efforts and the reigning champions ‘The Razorbacks' will certainly be the team to watch out for having knocked the long time champions 'Riteway Diggerz' off their perch last year..

You can see The PACIFIC TOYOTA Big Dig World Champs on Sunday 1st October at the Dig Zome (next to the skate park)

The Pacific Toyota Big Dig is simply a competition of real grit and determination and only the physically and mentally fit will overcome the challenge of shovelling 3 cubic metres of locally produced woodchip into the giant Footebins.




The Pacific Toyota Diddy Dig


Incepted in 2011 the Pacific Toyota Diddy Dig is simply a must see at Kawerau Woodfest on Saturday 30th September.  Similar to the Big Dig but with teams of 4 local children from our Primary Schools will dig it out against 3 other teams at a time. 

The challenge is a moderate half cubic metre of Woodchip shoveled into a specially made Diddy bin.  Top two teams in each round will go through to a winners semi and knockout competition. 

Last year Kawerau South School took out the coveted Diddy Dig trophy which will be up for grabs again this year along with a heap of spot prizes to keep all the local tamariki happy!
