WOODSMEN'S FIELD DAYS, INC.

Welcome to the NYS Woodsmen's Field Days, located in Boonville, New York. A small picturesque town located in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains in central northern New York State.

The Woodsmen's Field Days, a nonprofit organization, was founded by the Rev. Frank Reed in 1948. Due to the support of its many volunteers, (nearly 400) the Field Days have evolved into one of the predominant lumberjack contests in the United States today. Contestants come from as far away as Canada, Australia, and New Zealand to compete in the lumberjack festivities, which are held the third weekend in August. In addition to the Woodsmen's contest on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, there are displays of various forestry related equipment, covering a wide variety of interests from the professional logger to the occasional firewood cutter.

The primary goals of the Woodsmen's Field Days are promotion of the forest industry in general, and in keeping with the intent of Rev. Reed, the lumberjack in particular, a vanishing breed of men. With these goals in mind we felt what better way to do so than establish a forum on the Information Super Highway (the World Wide Web in particular), there by making related information available to anyone, any time, any place.
