7th Annual East Coast Lumberjack Round-Up 3/24

The 7th Annual East Coast Lumberjack Roundup was held by the ESF Woodsmen’s team on March 24th at the willow biomass research center in Tully, NY. Twenty four teams attended the meet and competed in a series of events throughout the day. The ESF woodsmen provided four and a half teams; the half team was composed of three ESF students and three UCONN students. The teams were; ESF men 1, ESF men 2, ESF women 1 and a Jack and Jill team.

ESF took first place overall for both the men’s and women’s category, and took second for the Jack and Jill category. Men’s 1 took first place in vertical chop, horizontal chop, team log roll, team pulp toss and team bow saw, giving them the points they needed to win first place. Men’s 2 cut down the competition in cookie stack, stock saw, and splitting with first place wins in those events. If you are keeping track that is 8 out of 15 events won by an ESF men’s team. The women’s 1 team pulled ahead of FLCC by 75 points, taking first place. Their strongest events, where they took first place finishes, were single buck, hard hit, fire build, vertical chop, horizontal chop, team log roll and team crosscut. After regaining their strength as a team, Jack and Jill held their own and came second only to Paul Smith’s. Stock saw, cookie stack, hard hit, cross cut to hell, and team pulp toss gave the J&J team a leg up to second place. Despite the fact that the ESF/UCONN team had never practiced together, they still managed to keep up with the competition and met some new people along the way.
