It was the hottest weather we have had during any of the past competitions, but the climbers and volunteers showed perseverance to overcome the heat and give their all. And we had great spectator turnout despite the weather. In addition Adam Alves had a good turnout for the Kid’s Climb. Goodman Park in Madison provided us with a good site and some fun trees.
Here are the results:
Overall in Men’s Division
- First place – Colin Bugg
- Second place – Andrew Gollnick
- Third place – Matt Bever
- First place Women’s Division – Shelly Wollerman.
- Our overall Team Champions were Group A – Colin Bugg, Cameron Lundin, Ernie Pearson and Thomas Schumacher.
- Our Spirit of the Competition award for 2015 – Randy Fairman.
As always, the response by our many generous sponsors was outstanding, and allowed for great prizes for the top eight placements in the five preliminary events. The competitors were presented with commemorative climbing bags and ribbons at registration. Special thanks go to the setup crew that worked with me through even hotter temps on the Friday before. It was another successful competition and we look forward to the WAA Tree Climbing Competition next year for 2016. Thank you all who participated in making it such a great event!
