L’ANSE—It’s now official. The U.P. Firefighters Tournament is coming back to Crystal Falls.
During last week’s tournament, officials of the U.P.’s volunteer fire departments officially approved Crystal Falls as host of the 2015 tournament.
Next year’s 120th annual tournament will be hosted by the Breitung Township Fire Department and will be held in Quinnesec.
As for the 2016 tournament, the West Iron County Fire Department seems to be the favorite to host the event in Iron River. If past practice holds, the U.P. association will make it official during the 2014 tournament.
