During the competition, participants had to stack nine logs into three pillars of three.
The competition didn’t just bring experienced log loaders. For one competitor, the two-minute warm-up was his first time ever attempting to stack logs.
“It went pretty good actually I think for never doing it, not knowing what to expect or what even really to do. I don’t think it went bad,” said Sweet Home resident Mike Urban.
Log loaders will continue to compete for the fastest time with the hopes of winning a cash prize.
The logging conference continues through Saturday. Admission is free.
