Local Lumberjacks Show Off Their Skills

By  | 

If Final Four basketball isn't your thing, there's a lumberjack competition at the Ingham County fairgrounds this weekend.

Professional and collegiate lumberjacks will compete in 12 different events ranging from cross cut to ax throwing. The competition serves as the Midwest Qualifier, and winners will advance to the national championship in June.

Hundreds of students and people from the logging industry are expected to participate. ESPN will be there to record the pro and collegiate competition to air at a later date this month.

The events start at 3:30 on Saturday.
