11th annual Fire VS Police golf tournament

September 16, 2016

The WFD golf team recently hit the links at Pine Ridge GC to face our brothers in blue in the 11th annual Battle of the Badges.

Event co-organizer Darren Bayluk reported some heated battles came down to the wire during the day-long Ryder Cup format championship, but in the end the WPS team took home the hardware this year.

I’m told Brother Bayluk has already put the team on notice that winter golf clinics are being booked. (Or were those winter golf trips?…)

This year’s team was made up of new & old, active & retired UFFW members:

Darren Bayluk (C) Ray Riddolls, Neil Cudmore, Tim Ringland, Dave Hermanson, Don Harrison, Darrell Desjardins, Hugh Duncan, Cam Ridley, Jamie Pachkowski, Justin Smook,Ryan Kalinski, Jarrod Small, Ashley Votto, Sheldon Bone, John Graham, Roman Namiuk, and Doug Roberts from East St. Paul. image

One group of unsung heroes involved in 9-11 are the IRON workers of the International Association of Iron Workers.

Alex is pictures below with proud Iron worker “Wild Bill” who worked on the Pile side by side with our Firefighters during the recovery efforts.

They worked to ensure our New York brothers were able to recover the deceased through the unimaginable steel wreckage.

Many of these workers have now contracted cancers related to their work.
