ISA HK/China --- Winning at the 2008 ISA Asia Pacific Tree Climbing Championship


To all Station Members & HK People,

By the least expectation & overall surprise to everyone, one of the two tree climbers representing ISA HK/China to compete in the 2008 Asia Pacific Inaugural Tree climbing Championship, won the 1st place at the Head to Head Footlcok Event among the other 40 tree climbers from UK, Australia, New Zealand & Singapore. At least 5 of the competitors were former world champion of one kind or another & this is the first time ISA HK/China, & our climbers, ever competed in an international event. We also shocked the organizers by winning at an amazing 16.71 seconds, breaking the Australia record of 17 seconds, & closing in for the world record of 13 seconds, for the Men's 15m Footlock Climb.

Now who can say ISA HK/China can not climb?

The winner of the event is the Mr. LEE Kai Wang of the Fung Kai Climbing Team trained by the Station Manager & TCHK. He is currently 19 & a student of IVE, not a very good academic but has exceptional quality as tree climber to bring pride to the HK people & our community. It is not known before that HK tree climbers have ever entered into an international tree climbing competition & won anything. This is our first time & has written history for HK in tree climbing & arboriculture.

Now after all the efforts to train these young men & women, they have flowered & rewarded our society with an honour respected & surprised the international community. The sponsorship of Sam Chun, Fung Kai School & others is not wasted & well rewarded. HK has created yet another miracle & fulfilled history in our tree care mission. The Station Manager did not sleep for 3 nights already before coming to Brisbane & stood to attend the event for 7 hours before the competition in preparation fighting a running stomach all the way to await for the moment. It turned out to be all worthwhile. If anyone was there to listen to the cheers & applause of the crowd, tears will come to their eyes, because HK has won against all odds. ISA HK/China has achieved yet another HK Miracle without adequate funding & proper instruction, & we did it.

Attached are some pictures of the climb in the dark & the award ceremony. Do feel proud & be part of it when you view them. May they bring aspiration & hope to our territory in our current sinking political sentiment. May they raise the spirit of our community again & give hope to our young men & women.

ISA HK/China looks forward to give you a better report in an Informal Dinner after our return on May 15.

best regards,

Sammy Au
Station Manager from sunny Brisbane, Australia

A little dеteгminatіon can get to the battery in the connection ѕtage.
I usually ρгoѵіdе it wіth a quick eliminate with a pіеce of tissue аnԁ sοmething nаrroω
howеver blunt like а straw рluѕ
it does the technique fоr me. I'd personally imagine a dried out cotton pot would work equally well, but that is usually the cause of a charged battery not working.
