NZ 2010 National Tree Climbing Championship - 13th Nov 2010

Matt Glen – putting a ‘Super Effort’ The STIHL / NZAA National Tree Climbing Championships were held at the Ellerslie Racecourse in Auckland, November 12 & 13.

Marlies Laser, the event Co-ordinator held the event over two days around the very relaxed but not necessarily tranquil ‘dress circle’ of the Ellerslie Racecourse.

The contestants yet again managed to take the level of climbing up another notch, demonstrating skills and attitudes that will tie in our climbers at the top of the international tree.

Men’s Masters
1 – Scott Forrest
2 – Ross Kite
3 – Tumai Laybourn
4 – Jawand Ngau Chun

Women’s Masters
