Volunteer Signup - Texas Tree Climbing Championship 

Online volunteer registration is now closed.
Please call Jim Dossett at 512.240.3060 to volunteer.

The time is once again upon us to volunteer our time, energy and especially your expertise to put on the Texas Tree Climbing Championship.  For many years, you all have been the heart of the championship and we need your help again!

The championship will be held this year at Getzendaner Park in Waxahachie.  The park is amazing—huge trees, diverse species, lots of space.  This may be one of our best sites and I’m excited about the possibilities the park affords us.

As usual, we will have a service/pruning day in mid-April, with the championship to follow on May 18-19.

We are changing our process for volunteering this year to make it easier to keep track of who is volunteering and to make following years simpler to make the call for volunteers. Please register as a volunteer as soon as possible so we can identify the resources we will need (hotels, food etc..) ahead of time.  While the volunteer site will remain open, I am asking for you all to register by March 15.

 Here you will be able to identify your past experience, share preferences as well as dates you will be available.  Likewise, you will be able to fill out you release forms ahead of time.

Markus and I truly appreciate all you have given over the years but it is the cadre of climbers who come from all over the state and the country to compete that benefit the most from our efforts.  We all know how powerful the championship is for the guys and gals in the field and it would not be possible without all of you!

Many thanks, and I look forward to seeing you all in Waxahachie!
