Due to the government shutdown, the 18th Annual John G. Palmer Woodsmen's Meet will be relocated from the Cradle of Forestry to the campus of Haywood Community College. HCC will still host all 6 collegiate lumberjack teams, have all your favorite events, and entrance is FREE and STIHL is the presenting sponsor. Come out for a great day of timbersports on October 5th!
