Awards

Each year CANLOG will present top competitor awards and two memorial awards at the AGM. The top competitor awards are distinguished by men and ladies rankings - novice, intermediate, and open. Each placing for a CANLOG event will reward the recipients with points. First place will receive 5 points, second will receive ___. At the end of the season, the secretary will tally up all the points to see which competitors were the top competitors from that season.

We also give out a Sportsman of the year award. This award is based on anonymous votes from the current membership. We are proud to say that lots of names get brought up each year.

The results below reflect the past season's winners. Due to Covid-19, the people shown below are reflecting 2019 results.

Sportsman of the Year

Currently, CANLOG has two memorial trophies, the Shannon Herlihy Lady Sawyer of the Year and the Henry Gauvin Axe Throwing Champion.
 

The Shannon Herlihy Memorial Top Lady Sawrey

Shannon Herlihy was a young competitor that left too soon. She was always happy and would light up a room or the logger sports field. She travelled to the shows with her family that she adored and was proud of. She tried her hand at several events, axe throw, double buck and jack and jill with her Dad, Brian Herlihy. While she was good at every event she tried she was known for sawing skills. 

At the end of each season the points of all lady sawing events, single buck, double buck, and jack and jill, are tallied up. The overall female competitor is then awarded a trophy in memory of Shannon.

The last recipient of this award is Allison Briscoe. 

Henry Gauvin Axe Throwing Champion

Henry Gauvin was a working logger and was a yarding engineer at Kokish British Columbia. He joined the logger sports scene in the early 1970s. He competed in many events but excelled at axe throwing. He used an Iltis ox-head, with the tips extended to the full six inches, which the rules allowed. There were few competitors who were more consistent than him. One of his favourite tricks was placing a bottle cap in the centre of the bullseye and splitting it in half. When Henry passed away his wife started the “Henry Gauvin memorial” in honour of his axe throwing skills. Any competitor has the opportunity to win this award, they just have to receive the most points in axe throwing for the season.

The last recipient of this award is Karl Bischoff.
