With at least a dozen upstart clubs and classes in the metro area alone, log rolling is officially a thing for people other than lumberjacks. We asked the high priestess of local rolling, Abby Hoeschler, a world champion log roller and CEO of Key Log Rolling, what modern-day log-rolling’s all about and where to try it.
On our innate connection with log rolling. . .
I kind of think of it like taking a log rolling lesson is the physical equivalent to buying a NORTH hat. It’s a fun and experiential way to celebrate and be proud of our North culture.
On log rolling not just being for lumberjacks anymore. . .
I’m partial to the belief that everyone, everywhere, should give log rolling a spin. Twin Citians in particular, whether they know it or not, share a personal and unique connection to the historic sport for modern times.
On how to get started. . .
To get rolling this summer, contact your local parks and rec or community ed program and tap into your roots.
