FVCC Champion Logger Sports Team Hosts Home Competition This Weekend

     Following two first place finishes at the Lumberjack Classic at the University of Idaho this past weekend and the Association of Western Forestry Clubs Conclave at Cal Poly University where they outscored 12 competing teams March 23-25, Flathead Valley Community College’s Logger Sports Team will host its annual home competition, Stumpjumper Days, April 16 from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. in the FVCC Logger Sports Arena on the college’s Kalispell campus. 

Fifty-six students from four colleges and universities in the northwest region including The University of Montana, University of Idaho, Colorado State University and FVCC will compete in various events such as axe throw, horizontal hard hit chop, obstacle pole buck, single buck and bonzaii logger.

The purpose of logger sports is to acknowledge the rich history of forestry and logging and keep traditions alive.  Event participants will be competing for the Bull of the Woods, Belle of the Woods and Top Team Awards.  FVCC has hosted the annual competition since 1972, with the exception of 2006 when the new logger sports arena was under construction. 

Community members are invited to attend, and admission is free. 

The arena is located off of the first road located north of the FVCC campus and east of Hutton Ranch Plaza on Highway 93 in Kalispell.  For more information, contact Bob Beall at 756-3898, email Annie Beall at, or visit
