Send the Cal Poly Logging Team to the 82nd Annual Association of Western Forestry Clubs Concave!

We ask for your support in sending the Cal Poly Logging Team to the 82nd Association of Western Forestry Clubs (AWFC) conclave at the University of Montana in Missoula, Montana this April. Given our team’s recent first place title against six other teams at the Sierra Cascade Logging Conference in Anderson, CA this past February, we are excited to send our top 16 competitors to Missoula to defend our title. Cal Poly is also the defending champion of this conclave, having taken first overall in 2019 at Colorado State. After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, our team is eager to compete at the western level to defend that title.  

 We need $10,000 to help pay for the costs of lodging, 1,200 miles of travel, food, and the competition expenses of 16 competitors to attend the biggest competition in the west.  

The Cal Poly Logging Team is a traditional timber sports team that competes in events such as chopping, sawing, tree climbing, axe throwing, burling, dendrology, and much more. Competing at AWFC is a great way for the team to show off their training and test themselves and to represent Cal Poly’s “Learn By Doing” philosophy at the western college stage.  

We ask that alumni, friends, and family members support us in our efforts to compete at the 82nd annual AWFC in Missoula, Montana. We thank you all for your support! Montana or bust!!!
