For the last 13 years, the Over the Top Poker Run has been held the last weekend in June. With August 2009 bringing the AMA Women's Conference to Colorado on the 19 - 23, it was decided to move the Over the Top from June to the 15th of August. Keystone, CO is only 150 miles away from Riverside, WY.

The chips fly during the third full weekend in June every year in Encampment as loggers come from all over the country to compete for the title of Rocky Mountain Champion Lumberjack. Using power saws, axes and hand saws, the men and women competitors cut down "trees", chop logs, and saw squared wood blocks in half, racing the clock for the fastest time. Cowboys ride bulls and broncs and the melodrama encourages the audience to get involved. This unique Wyoming event assure a good time to be had by all.
