Loggers’ Sports Day Saturday

  • Aug. 3, 2005 8:00 p.m.

Sandspit is the place to be this Saturday (Aug. 6) as the community hosts its annual Loggers’ Sports Day.
Come out and watch islanders showing off traditional logging skills and competing for great prizes – or even participate! It’s fantastic entertainment, and there’s not another day like it anywhere in the country.
It all starts at 10 am Saturday with the parade, and winds up with the awarding of the prestigious titles of King and Queen logger, followed by the “infamous” Loggers’ Sports Day dance at the community hall.
If you think you’ve got what it takes to compete in the events, register by 12 noon at the Sandspit community hall. Visitors are welcome to participate! Events will start shortly after noon.
This year there are loads of events for all ages, not just adults. Bring your kids out to compete in the mini novice division (ages 0-6) and junior novice (7-11), which are completely new.
The weekend also features a two-day island ball tournament. Another new highlight this year: fireworks Saturday evening.
Special note to all Sandspit residents: there will be a final work bee at 7:30 pm Friday (Aug. 5) – all volunteers are welcome to show up and help give the grounds the finishing touches.
See you at Loggers’ Sports Day!
