2012年度的 "香港攀树锦标赛", 就在这周末 11月17 - 18日举行, 地点是新界沙田马安山乌溪沙安俊街2号的YMCA渡假营里面, 入场费用全免, 但须用身份证作简单登记去换取识别手镯, 以便进场。 场门口有 TCHK 柜台协助登记手续。

是次锦标赛共邀得两岸三地和新加坡的四十余位高手参赛, 令是次比赛成为远东区目前参加人数最多的攀树锦标赛, 全程赛例完全按照 "国际攀树锦标赛" (ITCC) 的标准进行, 是中国地区唯一一个 ISA 承认赛果的比赛项目。

举办攀树锦标赛的目的是为了找出更安全快捷的攀树技巧, 在树上工作。 树上工作是充满危险, 使用棚架和升台往往不切实际和费时失事, 使用攀树技巧有时候是唯一方法, 在什麼劳工安全和职安健条例出现以前, 攀树技术已在100年前出现了。 如果有人依然坚持用搭棚来取代绳索攀树的话, 可能已经与世界潮流唱反调, 也漠视了攀树发展的历史。

2012 香港攀树锦标赛的出现, 是经过百多人多个昼夜工作的努力才会出现, 这些人当中, 他们的技术来自美洲、欧洲和澳洲都有, 也是不分门派背景, 同心一致, 为是次比赛付出血和汗, 完全值得所有人的敬佩。 但愿是次比赛, 能再度提高本地区的树上工作安全和效率, 为社会作出贡献。

11月17 - 18日在现场相见吧 !

Dear Station Members,

The 2012 HK Tree Climbing Championship (HKTCC) will be held in Wu Kai Sha YMCA in Ma On Shan, HK this coming Saturday & Sunday. Please check out the promotional materials in the attachment for details.

The HKTCC this year is the conglomerated efforts of over a hundred volunteers for much hard work in the past year. Tree climbers of various training background have joined hand to come together to make this event happen. TCHK is the organizer of the event, under the watchful eye of ISA HK/China. Nearly every TCHK & ISA HK/China staff has taken part in the preparation of the HKTCC, from planning, gathering sponsorship, sourcing venue, preparing invitation to site preparation.

The 2012 HKTCC will be run to the stringent standards of the International Tree Climbing Championship without deviation. Our judges have training hard for a year already. We are also very grateful to our sponsors for their generous support to make the event break-even financially. We are indebted to Wu Kai Sha YMCA for providing this wonderful venue that can house thousands of spectators. We expect the event to run smooth without the difficulties of the past this time.

45+ tree climbers from HK, Taiwan, China & Singapore will compete in the two day event at the HKTCC this year. The 2012 HKTCC is by far the biggest TCC in the Far East without govt support, & we anticipate thousands of audience will visit the event. HKTCC Committee has already informed the media on the details, & promotion has been made through our contacts for months to attract public attention.

All are free to come to visit the HKTCC this weekend. Any visitor just has to register at the gate with ID, & will be given a bracelet as a pass to enter this private holiday camp for the day. No parking facility will be available, because the MTR is nearby. It will be a great family out for the weekend indeed.

Come & support the 2012 HKTCC. See you all this weekend !
