VTCC 2013 a great event
November 25, 2013 by Secretariat Leave a Comment
VTCC 2013 was a great success and, despite some rain, we were able to get everything finished on the day, which after the second wash out and the delayed start to the day came as a bit of a surprise.
The support of our sponsors is invaluable in providing the finances that make the Victorian Tree Climbing Championships one of the most contested and popular competitions of its kind in the world! Sixty people registered for the day, though it looks like two didn’t turn up. With 58 competitors being run through the events in one day everyone involved should be proud of this achievement, as should everyone who participated.
We had a lot of prizes for participants and it was good to acknowledge the winners but I’d also like to encourage and thank everyone else who competed. If you keep at it each year you’ll see your scores improve and gradually move through the ranks. It was particularly gratifying to see the number of students involved. They are the future of our industry and we’re delighted to see them be so actively and enthusiastically involved in the day.
If you would like to see who the winners for each section were, you can find them on our website here: http://www.vtio.org.au/PDFs/VTCC2013-Scores.pdf There were also a couple of roaming photographers on the ground, one of which was our Secretariat, Kathie Thomas and our President’s mum, Jo Hall. You’ll find a set of photos at ourFacebook page and we’re also developing a Flickr group for people to share their photos athttp://www.flickr.com/groups/[email protected]/ If you have photos you’d like to share, particularly any from our presentation that evening, that would be most appreciated.
The next event for you to look forward to is Arbor Camp 27-29 March 2014. Make sure it’s in your diary so you don’t miss out!
