The Codger Pole
The Codger Pole, a 65-foot-tall chainsaw sculpture, commemorates a 1988 high school football rematch -- played fifty years after the first game, by the same participants (Colfax lost to St. John in 1938 -- no word who won the rematch). The pole is actually a fagot of five separate cedar logs with the heads of all the golden-aged players carved into them, topped by a Ponderosa Pine and a generic bearded "codger." It's claimed that the pole is both the world's largest chainsaw sculpture of human likenesses and the world's largest football monument.
Town fathers did a great job promoting and placing directional signs to The Codger Pole, perhaps because town fathers were the same people portrayed on it.
