At Macdonald Campus, the Canadian Intercollegiate Lumberjack Association took place with 16 teams competing. There are 4 core team events, 3 core doubles event and 6 core singles event. Macdonald was represented by 1 men's team, 1 women's team and a Jack & Jill team. Congratulations to all competitors!

Below, you can see Martin Schultz sawing at the Single Buck event with white pine. He had to cut through a round log in the shortest time possible using a crosscut saw. Also below, Colin Murphy was provided with a dried cedar block as knot free as possible, 3 matches and a can of soapy water. He uses his own hatchet and the time stops when the water is boiling over the edge of the can.
