Bruie Plains – Cold Drinks, ABBA and Plenty to Sing About

Bruie Plains Brigade, located 26 Kilometres from Trundle (in the Central West) has plenty to sing about…

Photo Competition, $1000 up for grabs

The VFFA is inviting its members from across the state to send in that extra special image you’ve captured. If you’re an amateur or just a beginner photographer, get your camera ready to support your brigade with this great prize.

We’re looking for that extra special photo for the front cover of our Winter edition of the VFFA Magazine 2015.

Due out in June 2015, we’re looking for something special to take the major position on our front page. It could be something from this coming fire season such as a brilliant fire related image, it could be a photo of the RFS’s oldest or the worst or let’s just say; the most Rustic RFS Fire Station in NSW.

Here’s your opportunity to use that brilliant photographic image you caught by chance and get your brigade something it’s in need of. Your brigade might need some extra Hose, a new Branch, a hand held UHF Radio or a Fireground Radio.

You can use the $1,000 to spend on anything your brigade may need from any authorised supplier to the NSW RFS. The VFFA will pay the invoice direct to the supplier and delivery will be included to anywhere in NSW.

Closing date is Saturday 28th February 2015 and all entries should be sent to: media@volunteerfirefighters.org.au and make sure you note “PHOTO COMPETITION ENTRY” along with your name, brigade and contact phone number/s. A confirmation email receipt will be sent to confirm your entry.

The winning entry will be announced 15th March 2015 and the winner will be contacted by phone.
