In 1926 — the same year that Winnie the Pooh was published and the first Pontiac was built — Eatonville made the Cruiser their official mascot. A timber cruiser goes out an examines a stand of timber to determine it’s potential value. This might be kind of an obscure mascot, but a perfect choice for the little logging town.

I’m not entirely sure what sport these newly-named Cruisers played, but they were Puget Sound champions in 1928-29.
