January is over, start booking February now! Plan to be in Stratford for the inaugural Taranaki Open TCC and Mountain Climb over Waitangi Weekend, 2011. Five Trees, Two Days, One Mountain, Two thousand five hundred and eighteen meters!The Taranaki Open TCC is planned for Saturday, February 5 at King Edward Park in Stratford. Covering 20 acres, King Edward Park is a combination of park, bush and river with plenty of old established trees. And… it's climber friendly, dog friendly, family friendly - just about perfect for tree climbing.
Participants in the TCC are eligible for NZAA Top 20 ranking points.
In response to requests from climbers at the 2010 NZ NTCC, the Taranaki Open will feature a judge/climber de-brief session following the competition. The de-brief session should help everyone gain a better understanding of the decisions made during the day.
Sunday will conclude the event with a climb of Mt Taranaki - a tree climbing weekend not to be missed.
Camping available at the adjacent Top Town Holiday Park .
