Sandspit’s the place to be Saturday

Get your chainsaws sharpened and oiled, put on your caulk boots and get ready to burl – Sandspit will be hosting Logger Sports Day on Saturday!
Logger Sports Day is a longstanding tradition on Moresby Island, and has been held annually for at least the past 23 years, said volunteer Sherry Price, and probably even longer than that.
Everyone is welcome, whether to compete or just to watch the action. There are men’s events, ladies events and novice events, and for the kids there’s even a caulk boot toss, and there are some great prizes to be won.
The day starts off with a parade at 10 am (marshall at the SuperValu parking lot at 9:30 am), and a ball tourney which will be on all weekend. If you want to compete, you have from 10:30 til noon to register for your events. Food booths will open at noon, and the competition will begin shortly after that.
For a special treat, there will be helicopter rides available from 2 pm to 4 pm near the Sandspit harbour for a fee. The day winds up with a dance starting at 9 pm.
