DURING THE MUSTER Games in Vergennes on Saturday, firefighters from seven Addison Country fire departments competed in events that tested their skills and speed. Fire hose water polo (top and bottom photos) was especially popular, and thoroughly exhausting. Addison took first place in Water Polo and the team won the Tom Estey Sportsmanship Award. The Weybridge department won the Bucket Brigade, Vergennes won Portable Pump competition and the Pat Crowley Overall Points Award, and Middlebury won Wet Hose and Midnight Alarm contests. Firefighters from New Haven, Bristol and Lincoln also took part.
