Tony Wise All-Around

Tony Wise All-Around Sponsored by

The Tony Wise All Around Champion, named after the founder of the Lumberjack World Championships', is awarded each year to the Lumberjack who scores the most points. The key to the All-Around title is endurance and the ability to compete in as many events as possible. The top contestants in every event receive points each day of competition, making it important to make it through early qualifying rounds in as many events as possible. Points are given each day for the top six places in each event, with a first place being awarded 6 points, second 5 points and so on. There are two exceptions to this. Due to the nature of the Springboard Chop and Logrolling, the all-around points for these two events will be scored differently. For the Springboard, the sixth fastest competitor's from Friday's and Saturday's heats will receive double the points. This is because Springboard competitors only get one opportunity to earn all around points. Fifth and 6th placements will be awarded triple points because of only four competing on Saturday. Logrollers receive triple points for their final placement because it is the only opportunity for them to receive points. The Tony Wise All-Around Events are: Underhand Chop, Standing Chop, Springboard Chop, Double Buck, Single Buck, Hot Saw, Jack & Jill, Logrolling, Boom Run, 60 foot Climb and 90 Foot Climb. Jason Wynyard has taken home the All Around crown for an unprecedented 16 years in a row.
