SKOOKUM…it’s a weird word…what is it?  Skookum is a Chinook Jargon word that has a variety of positive meanings in English – strong, brave, powerful, good.

This Saturday’s Skookum event at MetraPark’s Montana Pavilion brings together many sports that exemplify these qualities!  Men and Women will compete in cross fit, taekwondo, powerlifting, wrestling, arm wrestling, pole vault and more!

If you’d like to compete, you can still register in the morning on site on the day of the event.

If you just want to check it out, admission is $12 for the whole day of events which begin at 9am and ends at 6pm.  Kids 12 and younger are free.  It’s a great chance for kids to learn about non-traditional sports.

Check out More on their Website.
