UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON IS LOG ROLLING AGAIN!

January 05, 2017

This has been hoped for and now it's a reality!  The University of Washington, Seattle, has joined the collegiate LOG ROLLING community, thanks to the staff at UW Recreation and the accessiblity of the portable Key Log®!

Washington has some strong log rolling history but the difficulty of sourcing and moving heavy wood logs has relegated the sport to the photo archives at the university library. But portable Key Logs® have given campus rec programs everywhere access to the sport, and very soon the Washington Huskies will be spinning up some whitewater in campus pools.  We're keeping our fingers crossed for a revival of the annual log rolling tournament in the Drumheller Fountain, AKA, Frosh Pond.  Roll on UW! 

More than 100 college campus recreation programs have joined the Key Log Rolling® revolution. Campus Recreation magazine lists the top five reasons here.  We'll add a sixth ... get your college students learning and training for the first collegiate United States Log Rolling Championships™!
