The Forestry Club will be hosting the 57th annual Midwestern Timber Sports Conclave, September 26- 28, 2008 at the Ford Center in Alberta, MI.
The event will be sponsored by STIHL INC. and covered by ESPN.
Conclave is a weekend of Forestry sports including:
Precision Match Splitting
Eight Midwestern universities will compete. The schools range from Purdue University to University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point to even Lake Head University in Ontario, Canada.
The last time that the School of Forest Resources & Environmental Science at Michigan Tech organized this event was in 2002. This is an exciting event that showcases our facilities and the Upper Peninsula students from other areas of the Midwest. It should have a great turn out.
If you are interested in helping to officiate at the Conclave, have questions about it, or are interested in supporting it financially please contact:

SAF National and State Conventions
Every year, members of the SAF Student Chapter travel to the National Convention. The national conventions have been held in noteworthy cities such as: Fort Worth, TX, Pittsburgh, PA. Students also have a chance to attend the SAF meetings held in Michigan.
Every April the Forestry Club hosts Spring Banquet. This event honors seniors, alumni, and friends. Awards are given to outstanding students and alumni. In addition, a few "fun" awards are given from between members of the department. This is a time where students get to mingle with alumni and have some good time to relax with their friends before finals.
