Annual Camp 18 Logger’s Memorial Dedication and Logging Show

Camp 18Loggers-MemorialPlease plan to celebrate the logging industry of the past and present at the 5th Annual Camp 18 Logger’s Memorial Dedication and Logging Exhibition.

The event will be held on Saturday, May 10 at Camp 18 Logging Museum located at milepost 18 on Highway 26 in Elsie, OR.  ADMISSION IS FREE and everyone is welcome, so round up your family, friends and neighbors and enjoy a day of sawdust flying, tree climbing, axe throwing, nail-biting competition and edge-of-your-seat fun!

This year’s event will begin at 10:00 AM with the Logger’s Memorial Dedication Ceremony.  During this time  we will honor the fallen loggers of the past and officially dedicate the newest remembrance plaques to the Logger’s Memorial.  (Please note: the deadline for purchasing plaques to be included in this year’s dedication was April 15th For more information regarding plaque purchases, please contact Danielle Cook at 503-308-3250 or danicook09@yahoo.com)

Immediately following the Dedication Ceremony will be the action packed Logging Exhibition!  This is “the event” for hard working loggers and talented high school forestry teams from all over Oregon to come together and showcase their skills. There are still contestant spots available and logging companies and individual loggers are encouraged to participate – so put together a team, test your skills and join the fun!  Events include tree climbing, choker setting, splicing, double bucking, and the hooktender race.  Team registration for the exhibition begins at 9:00 AM so be sure to arrive early.

Make sure to stick around for the auction!  Donated items include an authentic Robert Tidwell carving form “Knot Just a Bear,” two cords of firewood (cut and split), an Ax-Man Axe, and a log truck of firewood.  Food and beverages will also be available for purchase throughout the event.

Volunteers are needed and donations are greatly appreciated.  For more details on team registration and volunteer opportunities, please contact Mark Standley at 503-434-0148 or logsafeinc@yahoo.com or Darlene Wilcoxen at 503-728-2050 or darlenew41@gmail.com.
