03/15/09 146 W, 1 I - + 14 - 13 Tournament Scores, 1907-1941

Here's a nifty compilation of scores from the tournaments at the North Carolina State Firemen's Association conventions. The scores are from the years 1907 to 1941, with a few missing years. The contents are horse hose wagon, hand reel, grab race, and motor apparatus. Absent are the other types of contests held in earlier decades, such as steamer and hook and ladder. The scores appeared in the proceedings from the 1942 convention. The last tournament appears to have been held in 1941. War conditions likely impacted the participation of departments and personnel. War conditions also saw the convention cancelled a couple times that decade. The above document has been added to a new page about firefighter tournaments, that includes compiled scores, rules, and other stuff. Compile scores from 1889 to 1906 are forthcoming, as well as rules for the motor apparatus contests. Plus whatever else Mr. Blogger stumbles across.
