ISA HK/China --- ISA Australia e-news no. 42

Dear Station Members,

Please find below the latest e-news from ISA Australia about the ISA Asia Pacific Conference & Tree Climbing Championship held in Brisbane last week.

When the current Sichuan Earthquake mourning is coming to a close, ISA HK/China will produce a more detailed account of our participation in the Brisbane Conference with a call for an Informal Dinner to show videos & pictures so taken during the event. Some of the information can be very educational indeed.

Thank you for your kind patience & God bless all those who are working hard to help the victims in Sichuan.

best regards,

Sammy Au
Station Manager
