It’s not just for loggers. Anyone who loves a parade, a ball game and a good burger will have fun in Sandspit this Saturday. But the main attraction is Logger Sports, a 50-year tradition, in this resource-based town. Watch the men and women of the islands compete in events like the choker race, power saw buck, log burling, axe throw and standing chop. Or jump in and compete yourself. The King and Queen Logger will be crowned at a dance, featuring local band Riptyde, at the community hall later that night. The dance starts at 9 pm. Tickets are $12 and available from SuperValu, the Sandspit Airport Inn and Brady’s Bistro.The parade meets at SuperValu at 9:30 am and starts at 10 am. Event registration is from 9:30 am to 11:30 am at the community hall for Men and Ladies (17+), Novice (12-16), Juniors (7-11) and Peewee (0-6). A rugby camp for kids is also being held at 11am and for adults a ball tournament will get underway. The events, food booths and beer gardens all start up at noon.
