Once again, UBC Farm will be transformed into the Timberdome as the host team, UBC Thunderjacks, face off against rivals from the University of Montana and University of Idaho.
The competition will include pole-climbing, axe throwing, single and double-buck sawing and speed chainsaw. The day’s events begin at 9 a.m. and continue throughout the day. As in years past, the ultimate event, the Canam relay, will wrap things up with Canadian athletes looking to beat their U.S. competitors in a relay that features the best of logging sports categories.
