Thank You from the 63rd Annual Sierra-Cascade Logging Conference

Posted at 11:11 AM on Mar 25, 2012


Words just can’t do justice to the amount of thanks we send your way. This year’s Conference was a tremendous success because of involvement from the entire industry and the community as a whole. Whether it was a slightly improved economy or people just wanting to contribute, we are amazed and extremely happy with the end result. You came through for us!

Our Board, Committee Chairs, Committee Members and all the other people who plan and execute the Conference did an outstanding job in making the event a prosperous one. The Education Auction nearly doubled what it has done the last few years, putting to work dollars for programs like Forestry Institute for Teachers, Talk-About-Trees and the Forestry Challenge.

When we needed sponsors for events, auction items donated or sponsored, support to offset expenses for the logging sports teams, we asked you and you responded with comments like: “sure”, “absolutely” and “we’d be happy to”. When we asked for your time, or for you to attend an event you said: “certainly”, or “we’ll be there”. The past few years have been very tough on all of us but if this year is any indication, the future is promising and things are getting better.

To the public who attended the Conference, we hope it was everything and more than you expected. We go out of our way to make it fun for the whole family. Entertaining while educational is what we strive for. Thanks for coming out and supporting us.

On behalf of the Sierra-Cascade Logging Conference Board and all our volunteers, thank you sincerely, for you participation in helping us to educate the public and the next generation that what we do is a good thing and to encourage them to be a part of it.

Thank you and we’ll see you next year!
