Who are we and what do we do?

The Colby Woodsmen's Team is a student athletic club.   We practice old-time logging skills such as standing-block chop, log rolling, sawing,
pole climbing;and newer events such as axe throw and chainsaw. We travel to about five intercollegiate meets each year in addition to hosting
our infamous Mud Meet here in March.

Our team is co-ed and open to any Colby students who are interested. No experience is necessary!  All you need is a willingness to learn and
a good sense of humor. If you'd like to get involved, feel free to come join us at practice any weekday afternoon.


Upcoming events:

  • We are done for the season! But we will be still be practicing at the Woodsmen field, so come by any time.
  • If you are interested in joining the woodsmen team, this is a perfect time to try it out, we will be at the field from 3.45 - 5.30 pm every day!trailwork dave
