The Beat the Chief competition was held at the Flin Flon Fire Hall Friday afternoon. Six firefighters tested their skills and fitness during a variety of tests. The top three were very close with Les Taylor first at 50.28 seconds followed by Aaron Simon at 50.70 and Chad Falk at 59.27. They were followed by Brandon Powell at 1:05.50, Jordy Reykdale 1:06.56 and Nathan Elliott at 1:13.35. Taylor says it was anyone’s race and good for the firefighters and the community. He says coming from his last department they never did anything like this where you run an obstacle course and he thinks it get everyone together, the community together and the kids together to see that they do and it’s a fantastic experience.
Twenty kids took part in the earlier Beat The Chief Kids Competition.
