All agree last year's conference was an excellent, well attended and successful event. About 1200 students came to the conference on Education Day to see the Lumberjack Show. "Conservation Ambassadors" were there with their cool critters. Career Day hosted high school and College students to explore opportunities in the industry and related fields. The High School Forestry Contest will be held during the Conference. This contest challenges High School students throughout the region in ten areas of general forestry practice. These events include making measurements of trees, use of basic forestry tools, such as the hand compass, diameter tape, and clinometers. Skills will be tested in pacing, map reading, table interpretations, and identification of tools, plants, trees and lumber. Awards are presented to top placments.
Several Portable Sawmill Vendors ran their mills for potential buyers. Antique logging equipment and other old machines were displayed, many of them running. Chainsaw carvers produced incredible works of art that were sold at various auctions during the conference. A multitude of Vendors were on hand to discuss their products and display their wares.
