Lumberjack competition ready to roar

Some of the best lumberjacks in BC will be at the 6th annual Port McNeill Logger Sports Society Lumberjack Competition June 27

The sawdust and wood chips will once again be flying on the North Island as organizers prepare to welcome some of the best competitors in British Columbia for the 6th annual Port McNeill Logger Sports Society Lumberjack Competition to be held on Saturday, June 27 at the Port McNeill waterfront, with the main show from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The North Island will host competitors in a full slate of events including Axe Throw, Grand Prairie Accuracy Cut, Springboard and Hot Saw to name a few.  There will be Men’s and Ladies categories as well as a Mixed Jack & Jill event.  This is an exciting spectator event with competitors racing against the clock and each other, so you won’t miss the action.

This year the society will be hosting the Canadian Championship Event for the Ladies Single Buck and the Novice Double Hand Bucking.  Come on out and see who gets to take home the national championship trophies.

Organizers are very excited to continue their very well-received novice-class competition and they encourage all North Islanders to come out and join in the contest and for some good natured fun. No axe? No problem! All necessary logger sports equipment will be provided for novice-class competitors.  Need a refresher course? No problem! Veteran logger sports competitor Nick Russell and junior champions Ally and Dawn Briscoe will be hosting practice sessions every Monday night in May and June at 6 p.m. at the competition grounds at the Port McNeill waterfront.  Novice-class competitors are encouraged to enter early as space may be limited and entry forms can be found online at:  www.vancouverislandnorth.ca/loggersports

See you and your family at Logger Sports on June 27 in Port McNeill!
