Twenty teams of Lumberjacks and Jills from eight universities in Eastern Canada and the United States will test their mettle at the 55th annual Intercollegiate Woodsmen Competition, Saturday January 24 at McGill’s Macdonald Campus in Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue.
Wood chips will fly as over 100 competitors vie for individual, doubles and team honours in traditional woodsmen events that include axe throwing, log rolling, pole climbing, water boil, snowshoe race and more. The events are a showcase of Canada’s rich history in forestry as celebrated by a whole new generation of lumberjacks.
Due to scheduled maintenance, the Athletics On-Line Services site will be unavailable from Thursday, February 21 at 10 pm to Friday February 22 at 3 am.
The newly refurbished Fitness Centre is open. McGill students and Sports Complex members can enjoy the facility free of charge until September 5, after which a membership will be required.
