Following the success of last year, the GVFB were asked to man the “Fire Walker” obstacle. This year our involvement was to ensure that the fires were fed throughout the 2 days of the event.
Unfortunately we had to stop halfway through the Saturdays when there were fears that the wall between the jump and the water would collapse. Luckily this was repaired overnight and we were back stoking the fires early on the Sunday morning.
As well as showing the competitors how best to do the obstacle, he also mad good use of the fires to provide sausage sandwiches.
The organisers were full of praise for our efforts even after we were first told to get more flames and then to be told it was too hot! Roll on next year!
Many thanks for Fireman Rowley for the photographs.
