By March 8, 2019News

Well, another State Open has been run and won – huge thanks and congratulations to Esperance VFRS for a well run Championship (especially Brian Willoughby and Harry Moir) and to Southern Ports for their sponsorship of this year’s event.  Thanks also to the Minister for Emergency Services, the Honourable Fran Logan MLA, FES Commissioner Darren Klemm AFSM and local MP Peter Rundle (National Party and Member for Roe) for dropping in and helping to present a few trophies. The competitors appreciated you all taking the time to visit our Championships.

Summary of Results:
