Pole Climbing and Saw Contest- Clark Fork 4th of July 2016

Master tree climber, Joe.

Yes, it's way up there and yes, the pole moves around as he climbs it to ring the bell at the top.

The saw contest, small, medium and large cut.

If you are thinking about which brand of chainsaw to buy, this photo should give you a hint.

Let the competition begin.  There were at least a dozen entrants in all categories.

The judges, Rod and Adam, were very conscientious and intense.

 Joe, on the medium saw.

 Our master sawyer and large saw contestant, Travis, gets ready to make his cut.

This is Jen's first year in the saw contest.  He entered all three categories and did well in all of them.  Not too sure about the foot apparel though....

The champion of the large saw competition, Travis and daughter Lyndsie, with Bob awarding the trophy.

Yes, Trav, I am taking your picture, again.

Our 4th of July ended with beautiful fireworks shot off the barge in the bay.  We are so fortunate to have the invite to Cousin Kay's house to watch the event as it's right above it.
It's one of the highlights of our summer.

Thank you to Kay for hosting so many people every 4th of July evening.
