One of the regulars at the NZ Regional Tree Competitions dropped in to Treetools to say hello last week while on a flying visit from Aussie. Zane Wedding is well known in tree climbing circles, particularly for his vocal support of fellow climbers at the comps - you can hear him in action on Jawand's and Jimmy's YouTube climbs at the 2009 NZ National TCC. Zane is currently working in Australia and may not be able to attend the tree climbing events during March.
