Every year, during our County's Fair, teams of firefighters gather together to compete for a traveling trophy.

This is the new trophy.  The last time our department won it it was a statue.  

But that was about 30 years back.Embarassed shrug.gif

 

The Firefighters' Challenge trophy is won by the department that can spray a metal barrel over the opposing team's

goal line--a white painted stretch of steel cable.   There are many qualifying rounds to get to the championship match.

Each round lasts 2 minutes.

8 minutes ago, Friends just call me Ross said:

Thought for sure  our 'pun'ny poster would say, "Looks like you're having a 'barrel' of fun." 

The first time I went to fire school was around 1990 and I went to the Dodd-Beals Fire School in Reno Nevada, they use to do the barrel contest but had discontinued it before I attended, so I didn't get to play..

 

After Dodd-Beals closed we started using the Fire Science Academy in Carlin Nevada, they didn't have a barrel wire set up so we didn't get to play there either.

 

I heard that the secret is to get someone to park a truck on the other teams supply line :eek:

 

It does look like a barrel of fun!!!
