What: The world's largest (and most fun) tree climbing competition!
When: July 14, 15, and 16
Where: Indianapolis, IN
JAMBO 4 is sponsored by:
JAMBO is TreeStuff.com's tree climbing competition - designed to be different from all other climbing competitions.
Our goal with Jambo is to create an approachable tree climbing competition centered around the principles of safety, innovation, communication, and the sharing of knowledge and new techniques. Tree climbing is always evolving, and Jambo strives to continually adapt to the ideas, needs, and culture of our industry.
Together we can create a down to earth competition where climbers are encouraged to experiment and innovate, all while displaying their skills, techniques, and creativity. We want to showcase our contenders, the masters of our craft, doing what they do best - working.
Last year's competition featured three different team-based challenges:
Worksite Challenge: A four person team competes to ring as many bells as possible in the shortest time, including new Chainsaw Bells that can only be rung with the team's one chainsaw.
Rigging Challenge: Four person teams must choose the tools they'll use to demonstrate their rigging skills. They'll have to raise, lower, and move logs large and small.
King of the Canopy: The first true "versus" style climbing event, each five person team will have 15 minutes to place tokens in their game zones, then 15 minutes to retrieve tokens placed by the other team.
Congratulations to our previous Jambo champions:
Chris Coates - 2014
Chad Brey - 2015
Nick Markley - 2016
