The IAA annual climbing event took place in Indianapolis at SouthEastway park once again. Although it was a soggy start, the competition went smoothly. We had 16 competitors climbing for the chance to move on to the Masters Challenge. Jeff Clark won the competition and will be representing Indiana next summer at the ISA International Tree Climbing Competition in Washington DC. Congratulations, Jeff!We would like to say THANK YOU to all of our volunteers who helped with setup, judging and tech support. There were many and they will be recognized in our quarterly newsletter. Special thanks to Wright Tree Service, Pings Tree Service, TreeStuff, Jason Diehl of @Height and Paul Pinco, competition chairperson.
