Two major Northwoods sporting events have agreed to share resources and management services in the coming year. The Lumberjack World Championship is merging with the American Berkebeiner cross-country ski race. Headquarters for both events are in Hayward. Birkie Week will run from February 22nd to the 25th, while the Lumberjack Championship is scheduled for July 19th through the 21st. The agreement is contracted for one year, but unless one of the organizations terminates the deal, it will automatically renew.
