Ryan ‘Big Dog’ Hill will be one of the 12 local forestry workers featured in the Studs & Stumps calendar being put out by the B.C. Interior Forestry Museum.

Forestry Museum goes beefcake with Studs & Stumps calendar

Revelstoke's B.C. Interior Forestry Museum returns with a 2014 fund-raising calendar featuring Revelstoke's pin-up woodsmen.

Revelstoke’s B.C. Interior Forestry Museum returns with a fund-raising calendar for the second season, this time featuring the pin-up men of the local forestry sector.

Museum advertising co-ordinator Katie Burrell said the 2013 Chicks with Chainsaws calendar, which featured women from the Revelstoke forestry sector, was a big success.

It has paved the way for more community and business involvement in the 2014 Studs & Stumps calendar. “We’ve had huge support from the community, which has been awesome,” Burrell said, adding businesses have been “super supportive and super stoked” about the calendar concept.

So, who’s Mister January? The roster isn’t yet complete, but committed forest industry models so far include Chris Ford, BJ Cummings, Ryan Hill, Peter Ball and Dave Adshead.

Photographers Keri Knapp, Jessica Stewardson and Zoya Lynch are involved so far, with more to come.

So, will it be NSFW? “What we’re really trying to do is showcase those guys’ personality,” Burrell explained. The photographers will portray the models in their working environment to share what they do and how they contribute to the community through hard work.

Were you and your rippling six-pack overlooked for the calendar? It’s not too late to become Mister December – but you’ll have to bring more than just good looks to the table. “We’re thinking about doing a competition at Revelstoke Timber Days to fill one of the spots,” Burrell said. They haven’t figured out exactly what, but they’re mulling a firewood-splitting competition.

The calendar sells for $15 this year; they’ll have a mock-up, pre-sales and out-of-town order forms available at the B.C. Interior Forestry Museum’s table at Timber Days. The calendar is scheduled to be ready for mid-July.

They also responded to feedback that the 2013 black format was impractical and will print one you can write on this time.

Burrell said a lot of the advertising spots have been sold, but some remain. They’ve created more affordable advertising slots for smaller businesses this year. For information, contact the B.C. Interior Forestry Museum.

Burrell thanked Lakeside Printing for their help making the calendar fund-raiser work.
