THE LEGACY CONTINUES...
UBC Loggers' Sports has a competitive team: the Thunderjacks!! In addition to being badass, the Thunderjacks competitively train to combine efficiency, technique and speed in the use of hand saws, chain saws and axes.

Competitions involve Canadian and American universities and college loggers' sports teams. The Thunderjacks have travelled to Montana, Idaho, Alberta and California to compete against other colleges and universities!
