Event Description:

 For over 50 years, the chips fly during Father's Day weekend in Encampment as loggers come from all over the country to compete for the title of Rocky Mountain Champion Lumberjack.  Using power saws, axes and hand saws, men and women competitors cut down “trees”, chop logs and saw squared wood blocks in half, racing the clock for the fastest time.  Cowboys ride bulls and broncs.  This unique Wyoming event assures a good time will be had by all.  Sponsored by Encampment-Riverside Lions Club.  For more info about the Jamboree, please call Ron Harvey 970-210-2955 or email
