APF 2024 & UK Loggers Championships
APF 2024 is taking place at Ragley Estate, Warwickshire on the 19/20/21st September 2024. As part of the event we are hoping to stage APF Loggers Championships. This event would be a precursor to the possibility of the APF and UK Loggers submitting a bid to stage the World Logging Championships at APF 2028. The event could be branded with the sponsor or sponsors name.
The WLC competition consists of five disciplines which all competitors must compete in to decide the overall winner. These events are the felling, precision crosscut, crosscut by combined cuts, fitting a new chain and snedding. The events are judged on speed and accuracy. The action takes place in two arenas and is fast and furious and makes for great spectator viewing.
The event would be run to the International Association Championship rules with 25 to 30 competitors from both the UK and Europe. It will take place over the three days of the show and culminate in a team event.
To run a competition of this size and complexity to World Loggers standards is expensive. To be able to run the competition we need sponsorship to cover the costs. This could either be one main headline sponsor or a sponsor for each of the five disciplines. The cost to sponsor one event would be £6000 + VAT. This could be purely cash or the provision of materials we need for the competition such as the machine rounded poles.
The arenas would be in a high profile location in the centre of the show site. In addition to full arena branding and naming the event after the sponsor or sponsors, sponsors would also get the following benefits:
- Sponsors logo on all APF 2024 advertising
- Sponsors logo on the front cover of the APF 2024 catalogue
- Sponsors logo on the home page of the APF website
- Dedicated posts on our social media in the lead up to the event
- Sponsors feature article in an edition of Forestry Journal
- First refusal for sponsorship on future APF and UK Loggers competitions.
- Provide branded clothing for competitors and officials
