All competitors should familiarize themselves with the new rule book prior to QTCC. You can view a copy here

Gear check:
Ensuring all competitors are using equipment that is safe is the first task of all our tree climbing competitions. If you’re new to tree climbing competitions, or would just like a refresher, the ISA have a complimentary Gear Check Video that covers how to properly conduct a gear check for a Tree Climbing Competition (TCC).
The video, which looks at a range of topics relating to proper equipment, maintenance and safety, can be found here. Alternatively, check out the documents below:

Gear check will be held at the Pony Club on Thursday 7 September from 4pm – 5.30pm. Avoid the comp day paperwork by getting your gear ticked off prior to competition day. Gear check will also be run on Friday morning for those who are unable to make it on Thursday. 
Events such as QTCC don’t happen without a multitude of amazing volunteers. We are looking for people to help as judges, tree technicians, and with Masters set up.
If you aren’t competing at QTCC this year but still want to be part of this amazing event, volunteering is a great option. To find out more and to register your interest click here.
