Here's a link to the photo's I captured with my cameras at the Muster events. My apologies to the Turkish team as I didn't capture any shots of them due to the drenching inflicted on my kit by one of the local firefighters so I had to leave the course to dry off my cameras and switch lenses. www.flickr.com/gp/ebuckley/fB8588

cross-posting : A quick heads up for anyone intending to go to the Firefighter Muster event today (Saturday), the venue is on the parade route for the local July 4th Parade so the street in front of it will be closed to traffic... something to consider for anyone like myself that was intending to drive and park nearby.

Hi All,

Is there anyone going to the Sprint orienteering from Springfield way? as I am trying to get there after doing the Ultimate Firefighter event but public transport looks to be very long and complicated.
Any help or suggestions would be greatly welcome

Many thanks Al

Craig Luecke We are preparing to announce free bus rides on the Fairfax County Connector bus system. Looks like if you take the 402 (blue) to the 306 GMU (green) that will get you there. Here is the map I found this. Show more Loading content, please wait. 2 years ago

Jason Abitz There will only be practice times set aside on the 29th and 30th. If the competitions end early we may consider opening the course up after each day for 2 hrs in order to provide some practice time. However, that will be a decision made closer to... Show more 2 years ago

Hi All,
I'll be one of the WPFG volunteer photographers on duty for the Muster event so if any of you need particular pictures taken for your home publications do let me know and I'll do my best. Also if there are any irish competitors do let me know as I'm travelling from Ireland for this and hoping to write up a few stories on Irish competitors for my journalism portfolio.

Is it possible to borrow a tunic and helmet on the day?

Has there been any decision yet on what age brackets are competing on what day? Need to make sure it does not conflict with my team sport. Registration closes in a few days. If there is a clash do we get our money back if we unregister??

Hi I am looking for 3 other over 45s who are up for entering the Ultimate Firefighter team event.
Each member just has to run one of the four events
We did it in Belfast and a lot of fun and would be good to have a go again. If interested just reply here or message me.

Many thanks

Hi Craig, Can you confirm which date the Ultimate Firefighter is starting on. Is it the 30th of June as stated on the webpage or the 1st of July as it says on the events schedule? Many thanks Al

Craig Luecke It is now July 1 - 3. I am in the process of updating everything on the site to reflect the new dates as a result of bracketing and meetings with the Federation. Very few changes. Alan Smith 2 years ago

In the WPFG only bracketed sports are published and individual sports competitors are not. There are a variety of reasons why this is done. Bracketed sports will be posted soon.
