Arborist In The Making And Only 4 More Sleeps Till Arbour Camp!
September 30, 2014 | Michael Spence
Well it’s official… Patto, one of our members of staff has started his apprenticeship! He’s only been with us for 6 months, he’s been super keen for a while now but there were a few things we had to organise first. It’s going to be good watching him learn new skills as he trains to become a qualified arborist in the Gold Coast. if enthusiasm counts for anything I think he’s going to do well. We’ve all been updating our training lately, I forgot how exciting it was to learn new things. I’m sure Andy and myself will enjoy guiding Patto, it’s good to go back to the beginning and over the basics from time to time.
I’ve enjoyed driving around the coast doing my quotes this last week. It’s the school holidays which means I’m not getting caught up in school traffic; although Thursday afternoon was a bit hectic on the roads when that storm that rolled though. It took me 45 mins to get from Carrara to Palm Beach! There’s just myself and Jen in the office at the moment. Koren has jet off to France to watch her friend get married, I’m sure she’ll be sipping a nice glass of vino now whilst indulging in delicious pastries and cheese! Jen’s enjoying spending more time in the office… even Alana has been helping… well kind of!
I’ve got quite a bit of footage from the Go Pro that i need to edit and put on YouTube. It’s really interesting to watch the footage and see things from the climbers prospective. I need to make more time to get out on site with the quad copter too. I’ll be posting some footage to Facebook in the coming weeks, look out for it!
Well it’s Arbor Camp next weekend. The programme was released late last week, it looks awesome!! I’m especially looking forward to the Stihl Timbersports. Take a look and come along, it’s going to be huge! Everyone’s welcome!
