Day two of the Urban & Rural Seniors and Rural Juniors Championships has begun with over 137 rural junior members now competing alongside the urban seniors.
Twenty-two teams from 20 rural junior brigades are taking part alongside the urban seniors who are in day two of their competitions. 263 seniors have competed over the weekend from 36 urban brigades.
An official opening ceremony welcomed rural junior members before events kicked off.
The first event of the day was the Low Down Pump & Ladder for 11-13 years followed by the Low Down Pump & Ladder for 11-15 years, the winners of which went head to head with the Chief’s Chargers.
Napoleons-Enfield team A won the 11-13 year race competing alongside the 11-15 year winners Millbrook A and the Chiefs Chargers.
The Chief’s Chargers took a respectable third place with Millbrook A being the overall winners.
Volunteer Programs (Youth) Jen Clement said it’s great to see so many junior brigades involved with the championships.
“It’s great to see our junior brigades coming from all over the state, including Dunrobin/Nangeela, Gapsted and Eldorado.
“Well done to all our urban juniors who took part in last weekend’s championships.
“Congratulations to all competitors so far and good luck to everyone competing throughout the day.”
The youth team alongside many other CFA directorates can be found throughout the day in the CFA corporate tent.
Final results will be shared at the end of the day on the VFBV website.
