RFS fun day at Shannon Creek Dam
The annual Rural Fire Service fun day - four different stands, as well as boot throwing, and tug of war. The standpipe event - Matt (blue shirt) is about to bowl out a hose. Since I'm not official yet I couldn't compete but got to watch.
Halfway Creek Brigade (Ton and Jeanette (live near me on Parker Road), me, Kevin and Laura, Matt). Matt has just started the basic course unfortunately my application hasn't been processed so I have to wait till the Mar/April course before I can get my gear and actually help with fires. We didn't win any prizes but didn't get any penalties either.
