2016 Logging Jamboree
21st Annual Event
The 21st Annual Logging Jamboree was a huge success, thanks mostly to the extensive planning, preparation, and hard work of the “staff”. Among things contributing to the success were: Great weather, getting lots of publicity out to the public thanks to the media, most astounding of which was the visit by Fox40 the morning before the event. However gaudy that was, we also owe a big thanks to the local papers, local on-line news, our Facebook page, and more.
The photographs that follow were taken by Cindy Micheli.

Makes the photo editor shudder just thinking about what damage this could do to a foot. It is, however, the event I’m most impressed with.
Sawdust man, or woman, or Choker setting competition
Great to see an enthusiastic audience. That’s the reason we put on the Jamboree

Cindy, our photographer, saw the opportunity for this great portrait shot. Nice job, CindyGreat job by Cindy catching George Harrison in this reflective moodOur Richard Small helping out. I was going to ask him to identify some of the participants in these photos, but he’s best at remembering historical people, not present day ones.Richard did a lot of the hard work getting ready for the Jamboree.Jack and Jill log bucking competition

I really wanted the broad axe in the foreground but somebody made a very generous bid on it. Fishing kit was donated by Ebbetts Pass Sporting Goods
