e!

s logging is Campbell River’s heritage and prime industry, in 1975 the Salmon Festival introduced Jim Lilburn Salmon Festival Treasurer a Loggers Sports demonstration as part of the celebration and in 1984 it became a sanctioned competition of the Canadian Logger Sports Association (CANLOG)! This first formal competition consisted of 1 Canadian Championship, 15 events and $5,000 in prizes. Popularity and support for the event began to grow each year and in 2004, with a

prize package of $25,000, the Salmon Festival’s Logging Sports event hosted it’s first World Championship. In 2005, it hosted 2 World and 7 Canadian Championships, 31 other events and over $30,000 in prizes ranking it No. 1 in Canada. Today this competition is still ranked No. 1 in Canada and is ranked No. 4 in North America. Although an impressive record, the World Class Competition would not exist without the support of the city, sponsors and spectators. Thank you for making it possible.

Logging Sports

istorically logging has been the prime resource based industry for the coastal areas of British Columbia. From the days of hand logging, bulls, horses and steam machinery to today’s use of grapple yarders, self-loaders, and helicopters the industry has seen many changes. Throughout these changes the one thing that has remained constant has been the loggers

getting together to show off their skills in friendly competitions. Today, nearly every major logging community has a form of these competitions, which have become to be known as “Loggers Sports“ and Campbell River is no exception. Since Campbell River is the major center for the logging industry on Northern Vancouver Island as well as the many coastal islands and inlets, it is only natural that Logging Sport Competitions became a major event in the community.

Logging Sports are not just competitions amongst the loggers but they also depict the heritage of the North Island by incorporating entertaining events that show both past and present logging practices. Events such as axe throwing, tree climbing, spring board chops, log rolling, hand bucking and high speed power saw cutting never cease to amaze the crowds at these competitions.

Logging Sports has become so popular in Campbell River that TSN Television network aired our 2000, 2006, 2007 & 2011 Logger Sports as well as AChannel, CHCT TV, and Shaw TV routinely cover our Logger Sports on their news and sports broadcasts. In 2006 and 2008 we were able to host the most prestigious Logging Sports event in Canada, “the Canadian East-West Logging Sports Challenge”. This competition hosted Ontario, Quebec and Maritime Loggers as they competed against Alberta and British Columbia loggers to determine who are the best, East or West. The West won both events. In 2010 two competitors Mitch Hewitt & Dave MacLeod were chosen at our show to represent Canada at the World Timbersports in Austria. Canada came in 4th out of 17 countries. The 2013 competition will host 2 World Championships and 7 Canadian Championships along with 30+ other Open, Intermediate, Novice, ladies, Youth, and Teen events. International and local loggers will be competing for part of the $30,000 prize package at this World Class Loggers Sports Competition. For 7 consecutive years the Campbell River show has been the largest Logging Sports Competition in Canada and is currently ranked 4th in North America. This is definitely one event you don’t want to miss!

We have what it takes to keep you going whether it's work or play!
