SEQ Firefighting Championships

The weekend following a fine warm Easter 2012 has seen the Mount Tamborine Auxillaries and the Tamborine Mountain RFB host 23 teams from the SE region in some strenuous and highly competitive events over a couple of very wet days. Despite the weather, upwards of 230 competitors and supporters enjoyed a show of fine skills displayed in tough conditions, with the end result being a first place to the Marburg team, second to Mount Tamborine and third to Chambers Flat. 
Our Rural team, comprised of Maria, Donna, Don and Kent, did us proud with excellent skills and drills and an unflagging determination, which bodes well for a future challenge, perhaps in 2013, when the event will again be held at our Showgrounds. A large number of our members also provided essential help with rewinding hoses and generally keeping things moving, while Geoff and Neville manned the VCE tent to bring their important messages to the public.
Many thanks to all who participated and helped make a memorable weekend. TM1.
