Tim-brrrrr! On a brisk, spring day more suited for burning wood than cutting it, Pennsylvania College of Technology's Schneebeli Earth Science Center hosted the Mid-Atlantic Intercollegiate Woodsmen's Meet. Penn College students, whose team finished third overall, competed in 19 categories against their counterparts from four other institutions with forestry majors: Haywood Community College, Clyde, N.C., (which placed first); Penn State Mont Alto (second); Allegany College of Maryland (fourth); and Montgomery Community College, Troy, N.C. (fifth). The day's festivities included a 40th anniversary reunion of more than 40 Williamsport Area Community College and Penn College forestry alumni, one of whom – Ronald Yaple, of Sheffield, Mass. – drove 282 miles to attend.
