It's just about the next best thing to the Hayward
World Lumberjack Championships .
the 7th Annual Three Rivers Roleo in Onalaska.
Many of the top log rollers in the world that competed
in Hayward just a couple of weeks ago will compete
this weekend on the Black River.
History of the Coulee Region turning out some of the
world's best over the years is just one of the reasons
why this has become a big event.
To have it here is awesome.
Right where we're standing used to be a lumber mill
on the Black River in Onalaska and three more straight
down stream of here, one right across the river.
La Crosse had up to 19 at one point.
So the history and the tradition is here.
But also like you said with the amount of pros we
have in the area is very unique.
Free parking...free admission...and more great weather
on tap for tomorrow.
Amateurs begin competition at ten a-m.
And the professionals will take to the river around
