Siskiyou Sportsmen's Expo

The 2018 Siskiyou Central Credit Union Sportsmen’s Expo was the place to be on March 24 & 25 if you like the great outdoors! A cold front made for some crisp spring weather but the awesome food and outdoor activities for the whole family gave everyone the chance to make a memory and leave a winner!

The NorCal Invitational Chainsaw Carving Championships crowned a “Quick Carve” and a “Main Carve” champion on Sunday. In the Quick Carve competition carver Jason Stoner, Fairfield, Pa sawed his way to a first place win which included a $250.00 cash award and a new Echo Chain Saw from G&G Ace Hardware. Jacob Lucas, Bonney Lake, Washington was second and Mitch Hokanson, Redding California finished third. In the main competition Jacob Lucas, main carve champion from our inaugural year in 2014 carved an impressive mountain lion to add a second championship to his list of accomplishments. Lucas was awarded the $1000.00 first prize monies and the coveted NORCAL Invitational engraved “Champion” knife. In second was Mark Culp from Lakeport, California. Mark is a many time world champion but has yet to win the championship in Yreka. Mark took home $750 and a knife for carving “Kaw-Liga.” Third this year was Jason Stoner from Fairfield Pennsylvania with a wooden rendition of Captain Morgan and annual contender Colby Herrington carved an Ibex goat to finish fourth. “The NORCAL Invitational has been a great addition to the Expo and it is hard to believe this was the 5th annual NORCAL Invitational and with the quality of carvers in attendance everyone had a chance to see the world’s best,” stated CEO Cliff Munson, “In 2019 we will be bigger and better!”
