Aflac Outdoor Games!

Looks like the Outdoor Games are coming back (well sort of) with a new sponsor, Aflac! The dates are set, June 27 – 29, 2008 at South Commons in Columbus, Georgia.

The agility lineup isn't set yet, so if you'd like to give it a go, they are looking for a few good dogs! We'd love to participate, but even though I'm not nearly as speedy as some of the top national level dogs, I have my moments sometimes, and a highly competitive environment could just bring it out in me. Well...maybe not. And Georgia is just a bit too far for us to travel right now, with the current competition schedule we have going. Ahhh, we can dream for someday, right?

Here's a bit of info from their website...
The Aflac Outdoor Games is a 3-day event providing families and friends an opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors. The inaugural event is scheduled for June 27 – 29, 2008 at South Commons in Columbus, GA. As part of the Aflac Outdoor Games, Columbus will be host to the nationally televised STIHL® TIMBERSPORTS® Series Collegiate and Professional Championships. For more information about STIHL® TIMBERSPORTS®, please visit STIHLTIMBERSPORTS.com.

The Series is comprised of eight competitive events that challenge competitors in the arenas of strength, endurance, stamina, tool skill and agility. The events include Hot Saw, Stock Saw, Underhand Chop, Standing Chop, Single Buck Saw, Speed Climb, Springboard and the Boom Run. The Aflac Outdoor Games has contracted with STIHL® to bring both the Collegiate and Professional Championships of the STIHL® TIMBERSPORTS® Series to Columbus in 2008 and 2009. This event will be broadcast on ESPN2 and ESPNU bringing national exposure to the region.

In addition to the STIHL® TIMBERSPORTS® Series, the Aflac Outdoor Games will be host to a National and Local Bar-B-Que cooking contest presented by Piggly Wiggly, dockdogs, Agility Dogs, and many more outdoor activities.


  1. Hey there. I am debating going only if I can bring my older BC to run agility, and also do some dock diving with my young BC Pre...
    Do you know how to register? or is it invitation only, like ESPN?
