Penn College Student Excels in ‘Game of Logging’ Competition


A Forest Technology student at Pennsylvania College of Technology finished fourth in the recent 2003 National Collegiate Game of Logging competition held at Penn State Mont Alto.

Justin A. Snyder, Pleasantville, competed against 15 students from seven other colleges. The competition featured five events: speed cut, precision bore, precision stump, spring pole and tree-felling.

Snyder will compete next year in Game of Logging’s landowner competition, to be held in Wisconsin.

Game of Logging, which focuses on safe and productive timber-harvesting techniques, also holds a professional logger competition, which was won in 2002 by Snyder’s father, Kevin. During school breaks, Justin, a second-year student, works for his father and uncle at Snyder Logging, Pleasantville.
