For more information on how to compete at Kaslo Logger Sports or volunteer to help with the show, please contact Kathy Freeman.
Logger Sports has become one of the main events at the annual Kaslo May Days Celebration. Competitors from across Canada and around the World compete for big prize money and the opportunity to show off their logging skills.
Every year on the Victoria Day long weekend spectators are thrilled by Canadian Championship events such as Tree Climbing, Log Rolling, Axe Throwing and Springboard Chopping to name a few.
The venue is on the shore of beautiful Kootenay Lake with its gorgeous backdrop of the Purcell Mountain Range. Our grounds are steadily being improved with beautiful amphitheater style seating and a new log rolling pond.
Logger Sports is run by volunteers and is sponsored by local businesses, groups and individuals. We’ll see you at this unique and exciting family show.
The 2017 event in Kaslo features 5 canadian championships:
- Unlimited Hot Saw – Open
- Choker Race – Open
