2011年香港攀树锦标赛, 在赛事三天前突然改变场地, 加上碰上连续降雨, 在八十多名的工作人员努力奋战下, 如期在11 月 19 - 20 日的新场地里成功举办, 创造了另一项 '香港奇迹"。 ISA 总会派过来的总裁 Mr. James Skiera 先生在看毕全程后, 给予赛事高度评价。
是次比赛是历年来最多攀树手参与的一次, 包含新加坡、美国和澳洲的选手在内, 一共有33人。 五项赛果当中 (投掷袋、空中拯救、双绳脚锁、速度攀爬和工作攀爬), 每项都产生了冠、亚、季军, 而五项的总成绩达到某个水平之时, 赛员可以参加11月20日的 "大师赛". 是次 "大师赛" 一共有来自香港、美国和澳洲的男女选手合共9人参加, 却都是由香港选手夺得男女冠军。
附上的照片当中, 描绘了攀树者的纯真一面, 有苦有乐。 所有参与是次活动的人, 心里面只有一条, 就是要全心全意把赛事搞好; 虽然屡经波折, 依然克服困难, 这可能就是这次活动最感人之处。

Dear Station Members,
Despite persistent rain & a sudden change of venue, the HK Tree Climbing Competition (HKTCC) has been successfully held on Nov 19 - 20, 2011 in Sheung Shui, Hong Kong. Mr. James Skiera, Executive Director of ISA, was kindly staying with the event full time for two days, & was impressed by the dedication & efficiency of the organizers & participants to successfully manage it.
Tree Climbers from the US, Australia & Singapore were joining the event. Some of the most candid moments of the HKTCC have been captured in the photos attached for public enjoyment. A photography contest was also held by a professional group to take the actions up & down the canopy. The competition ground has been jam packed with visitors from time to time, to witness the success of the event.
All the competitions were held to the rules of the International Tree Climbing Championship (ITCC), & this was the first time tree climbing in HK ran with such rules. The winners of the Master Challenge & other events have the right to represent HK to participate in the Asia Pacific Tree Climbing Championship (APTCC), & in the ITCC. The HKTCC is a qualifying event to select Tree Climbers from HK to enter international competition. To be in it, is the first step to meet the world.
Tree Climbing is an environmental friendly sport, healthy to the body & mind, & builds conservation concept by action. It is safe for recreational purpose under trained hands, & it opens up a career to young people who prefers strenuous adventure aloft, while contributing to the society.
Looking forward to this healthy sport developing fast in our territory of HK, Macau, Taiwan & China soonest.
