Port McNeill teen Dawn Briscoe fights through the final strokes in the novice single buck sawing event during Saturday's logger sports competition in Port McNeill.

They came, they sawed, they conquered

Logger Sports Society hosts its annual Lumberjack Competition in Port McNeill.

PORT McNEILL—Dave Macleod of Campbell River took home the men’s overall trophy and Janice Burns was the women’s champion as the Port McNeill Logger Sports Society hosted its fourth annual Lumberjack Competition at the local waterfront Saturday before approximately 200 fans.

Dave Patriquin added the Mike Murray Memorial Trophy as the overall novice winner in the logger sports competition, which drew more than two dozen entrants in men’s, women’s and novice categories.

The event featured competition in classifications that included multiple hand- and power-sawing divisions, axe chopping and throwing and the gruelling choker race. Competitors covered the spectrum of entrants, from Can-Log tour professionals and women to local novice loggers, including a pair of Port McNeill teens — sisters Ali and Dawn Briscoe — competing for the first time.
