Powell River Logger Sports champions return to defend titles

Tyler Brady, Julian Welp and Jeff Coburn set to compete in events at Willingdon Beach

Competitors from Powell River made noise in more ways than one at Loggers Memorial Bowl in 2018.

Tyler Brady claimed three Canadian titles, including Intermediate Husky Challenge, Novice Underhand Chop and Novice Standing Block Chop. He also reached the podium in two other events, finishing third in Intermediate Chokerman’s race and Novice Tree Climb.

A time of 18.99 seconds earned Julian Welp first place in Novice Tree Climb, just ahead of fellow Powell River entrant Verjall Ham, who finished second after posting a time of 19.29.

Jeff Coburn won the Intermediate Obstacle Pole Canadian championship and also teamed up with Cam Cumming to win the Intermediate Double Buck Canadian title. Powell River’s Allan Knapp and teammate Brad Laviolette from Port Hardy finished third behind Coburn and Cunning, who finished six seconds ahead of a second-place international pairing.

Brady, Ham, Knapp and Welp will return and seek more podium finishes as part of the Powell River contingent entering events in 2019.
