The winner for the 2014 Oregon Logging Conference “Guess The Load” competition was Alex Schryvers of Springfield, Ore. Alex is a fabricator at Peterson Pacific (site of the OLC presidents tour in 2012) and his family used to own a logging company.
The net scale on the log truck was 5,900 board feet. Three entries had the correct answer and Alex was picked randomly from the three.
OLC Director, Jayme Dumford says, “Over 900 entries were received this year. The lowest guess for Net scale was 48.5 bd. ft. and the highest was 20,000,000 bd. ft. Of the entrants who noted where they were from, we received guesses from Oregon, Washington, California, Idaho, Colorado, Arizona, Utah, and Alaska.”
