As I continue to post information you will find folders for each decade, each year in the decade, and then each drill within the year. This format will allow me to post not only the yearly overview but also the documents which I took the information from along with picture, stories, etc about each individual drill.
Currently 1974 & 1979 are there. I will continue to add info and will post what is updated/added to this thread.
I hope you enjoy seeing these as much as I have.

1973 added. Missing complete results from Suffolk County drill & Islip Town. May be missing South Shore at Oyster Bay? A schedule shows a drill at Oyster Bay in August, I cannot find any other info about it. Anyone remember this?

The 5th Battalion I think was won by Atlantic Steamers I know they ran it that year. I was there and have some pictures but they are not great. My friend Tim and some of his friend from Albertson filmed it for me. I have to get it put on DVD.

I am currently working on 1978. The schedule that was printed in Firenews shows the the 3rd Battalion Motorized Drill was scheduled for Sat Aug 5th and the 2nd Battalion Drill for Sunday the 6th. I am unable to locate any results for either of these drills. The Walbaums fire occurred on Aug 2nd. Am I correct in assuming that these 2 drills were cancelled due to the Walbaums fire & funerals?
