Photos Courtesy of Cameron Photography Huntley Firemen To Host Hose Training (Waterfights) Photo Courtesy of Judy Kunde The Huntley Fire Department invites you to the annual Hose and Water Training Competition (formerly known as Waterfights). The event will take place this Saturday, June 28, on Woodstock Street at Coral Street (on the Town Square). Huntley Firemen will compete against teams from other area departments. Each five-man team tries to control the hose (with 80 pounds of pressure coming through the nozzle) and aim the stream of water at a barrel centered between them. The team that forces the barrel past the other team in a 2-out-of-3 contest wins. Registration begins at 4:00 pm; competition begins at 4:30 pm. If the scorching heat of last weekend is still with us, this could be a GREAT WAY TO COOL OFF! Ask the Garden Experts Day This is your chance to have all those gardening questions answered!
