Lumberjack Contests In Full Swing

by Donna McCollum

In Nacogdoches three days of lumberjack competitions have attracted college teams from across the southeast United States. They're here for the Association of Southern Forestry Club's 48th Annual Conclave. SFA is hosting the event.

The boom run kicked off the competition. That's where you walk the length of a floating log.

Thursday evening the power tools come out with the chop and stock chainsaw competition. Chainsaw competition goes from seven to ten.

Log contests will get underway Friday at 12:30 p.m. On Saturday the excitement gets going bright and early at eight o'clock in the morning.

All the fun is at the Nacogdoches County Expo Center.
