Event details: The UBC Farm is hosting the Great Canadian Classic, an annual logger sports competition that celebrates B.C.’s forestry heritage. A section of the farm will transform into the “Timberdome” as the host team, the UBC Thunderjacks, face off against rivals from across the Pacific Northwest, including athletes from the University of Montana, University of Idaho and Vancouver Island University.
The competition, now in its sixth year, will include axe-throwing, pole-climbing, single- and double-buck sawing, and speed chainsaw. The ultimate event will be the Canam relay which will see team Canada and team America run, chop and saw their way to the finish line.
