Bella Coola Loggers Sports Results

Another successful Loggers Sports competition

Another successful loggers’ sports was held on Sunday, Sept. 11 at the Bella Coola Fall Fair.

Organized by Bella Coola Community Forest Ltd., the event hosted an array of fun and challenging events for all to try.

Marisa Moreno-Blewett, who has won the Lady of the Woods multiple times, but no longer competes in all the categories, gave a shout out to organizers for their hard work in putting on another wonderful event.

“It was a great turnout, the weather could not have been better and the competition in the logger sports was top notch,” she posted after the event.

“It was lots and lots of fun,” Moreno-Blewett said of the loggers’ sports when speaking to Coast Mountain News.

She then commented how while she takes it easy now compared to years past, she still loves the event where she pounds in the spike.

“It’s very satisfying.”
