Members begin practicing Lumbersports in the winter and lead up to county competitions. County teams compete provincially at 4-H Provincial Rally in May of each year. Lumbersports consists of a number of fun activities including Cross Cut Sawing, Pulp Sawing – Single and Double, Water Boil, Back Tank Race and Pulp Throw.
How to qualify: Each county chooses their team in their own way, but each club has an option to participate at a county lumbersports event first. Each county is eligible to send a team to both categories at 4-H Provincial Rally: Lumbersports Skills Competition, and the Lumbersports Competition.
The Lumbersports Skills Competition is open to Junior Lumbersports teams from across Nova Scotia. The Competition takes place at 4-H Provincial Rally.
