Logger Sports

Big crowd come out to see the third showing of the annual event

PORT McNEILL—It was a family affair when the local Logger Sports Society hosted its third annual Logger Sports Competition before nearly 250 fans Saturday along the waterfront.

Campbell River’s Dave MacLeod topped the men’s Canadian Logger (Can-Log) points leaderboard, followed by the father-son team of Karl and Carson Bischoff.

Brenda Pouchnik, who husband Derek was a top-five finisher in the men’s results, was the top point-getter among the ladies, while Andrew Murray edged out Scott Thompson and Angus Brown for honours among novice competitors.

Four of the top five teams in the Jack-and-Jill mixed double buck saw event were either married couples or father-daughter teams, including Port McNeill’s Nick and Sarah Russell, who placed fifth.

The event was backed by multiple local, Island-wide and national businesses, including title sponsor Pacific Coastal Airlines. The Hyde Creek Volunteer Fire Department handled site volunteer duties and members of the Reinforest Riders equestrian club took care of timing the events.
