For many, the end of the fantasy football season has always signaled the beginning of six long, hard months when fantasy team owners must be content to plan next year’s fantasy strategy, to review what worked and what didn’t, and to otherwise occupy themselves with chores and hobbies that just don’t satisfy to the same degree.
This year, Ram Trucks partner STIHL®, Inc. is hoping to change all that. The creator and producer of the premier lumberjack sports event, the STIHL® TIMBERSPORTS® Series presented by Ram Trucks, recently announced the launch of Fantasy Lumberjack, the first-ever fantasy game for lumberjack sports. Fantasy Lumberjack will be hosted on the Official STIHL TIMBERSPORTS Series Facebook page throughout the 2013 season, which kicks off March 15 with the Southern Qualifier hosted by Auburn University.
The STIHL TIMBERSPORTS Series Fantasy Lumberjack game is similar to other fantasy sports—participants act as owners to build a team that competes against other fantasy owners’ teams, with outcomes based on the statistics generated by the real individual athletes competing in the STIHL TIMBERSPORTS Series. Fans will have the opportunity to pick which lumberjack athletes they think will perform the best in each event of the 2013 season for the chance to win a STIHL chain saw and a trip for two to the STIHL TIMBERSPORTS World Championship in Stuttgart, Germany, Oct. 24-25, 2013.
Six STIHL chain saw winners will be identified following each event for the 2013 season based on the highest number of points accumulated per event. The trip to Germany for the World Championship will be awarded at the culmination of the STIHL TIMBERSPORTS U.S. Championship to the user with the highest accumulated points generated throughout the entire season.
Fantasy Lumberjack is free to play and open to anyone in the United States. To begin the ultimate fantasy sports game experience from the ultimate lumberjack sports competition, visit Facebook.com/STIHLTIMBERSPORTS or apps.facebook.com/fantasylumberjack.
Good luck to all who participate!
