A team of U.S. Army Corps of Engineers took on the Tualatin Fire & Rescue team during the 10th Annual Giant Pumpkin Regatta in Tualatin, Ore., Oct. 19.

It was the Portland District engineers fifth appearance in the annual regatta.  Going into the race, the engineers were 3-1. The team’s captain, Alan Stokke, Engineering and Construction Division, says the smack talk between the eight engineers and the fire fighters around July-August, and builds as the October match-up gets closer.

The event was an action-packed, close race with Tualatin’s fire fighters barely squeaking out their second win in two consecutive years!

Always good sports, the Corps engineers congratulated the winning team … but are still planning for victory next year.
