Page-8-Banner Times Monday, August 12, 1985 Five Hundred Teams Brave Salmon The Ringgold Firemen's Field Days began with a well-attended parade Thursday night. The parade provided a variety of floats, bands and fire companies, to the delight of spectators young and old. APW High School Band grabbed first place in their division in the parade, and the Pulaski Big M took first place for their float. Many who attended the parade proceded to the grounds to enjoy the rides, food and games. Friday night, a spectacular display of fireworks was enjoyed by the crowd. However, for many, the highlight of the field days, was the sixth annual Tube Races, which fulfilled its promise of a great time for all, Saturday. A hot August sun provided good reason for contestants and 'renegade rafters' to take to the water. Spectators lined the river to watch the tubes of 500 teams plus unregistered 'tubers'. Awards were given for designs and best times. The top ten winners in the design category were: Scum of the Earth VI, 159, $500; Bucksnort Resort, 454, $450; American Legion Post 358, 313, $300; Joy Riders, 167, $200; Fulton Boiler Team #4, 134, $100; Class Act, 488, $100; Lost Cause Racing Team, 475, $50; C.N.Y.
