Firemen’s Challenge – Netcong vs Stanhope !

This August fire departments of Netcong borough and Stanhope borough will stage hose companies on opposing shores of lake Musconetcong for an epic duel of strategic fire hose operation and raw power.  August 19 at 4 PM spectators will watch these two neighboring towns fire departments blast their hoses for bragging rights of the first Firemans Challenge. An empty beer barrel will be placed in the lake between the two fire departments. The department able to drive the barrel to the opposing departments shoreline will without delay be declared the 2017 challenge winner. Spectators can stay dry or get wet at either the Musconetcong state park boat launch off Allen street Netcong (behind the Growing Stage) or at Stanhope Lakeside Park off route 183 ( next to the Enrite gas station). For more information call Netcong borough hall 973-347-0252
