The annual event, this year hosted by Cal Poly’s forestry club, features competitions in ax throwing, log rolling, boom running, pole climbing and power sawing, said Haley Marconett, communications director for the College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences.
Competition began Wednesday with technical, throwing and water events, as well as pole climbing. It will continue Thursday and Friday with events in chopping, buck sawing and choker racing taking place in the Nelson Learning Center on campus at 7:30 a.m.
