2022 TIMBERSPORTS Camp Single BuckIf you haven’t heard of logger sports before, then now is the time to find out more. TIMBERSPORTS® has its roots in Australia in the 1800s when lumberjacks would compete against each other outside work to see who could chop through a log the fastest. The idea behind the sport itself hasn’t changed much in that time: the object is still to get through a log in the quickest time! But, with an official set of Rules and millions of fans worldwide, it’s now a competition series where the top athletes get to travel the world competing in front of huge audiences.
