Almost thirty of the best lumber graders from across the province competed in COFI’s 44th Annual BC Interior Lumber Grading Championship on May 5th in Kelowna. And of course since those of us concerned with quality control always stick together, I’m pleased to note that Dave Munro of West Fraser has been crowned this year’s champion! Dave and I were in the same memorable class at BCIT for two years, in the Wood Products Manufacturing Program (’92 – has it really been twenty years?). When it came to lumber grading, I recall Dave being tops in our class, taught by timber specialist and program head Eric Worthy. It’s not surprising to see Dave now tops in the province, with a mark of 96.4% in the championship. Congrats!
