      Firefighters go bowling on the ice

      Gwinn area residents got together for some bowling on ice Saturday.

      It was the third annual Ice Bowling Tournament at the Peter Nordeen Park in Gwinn. It's a fundraiser for the Forsyth Township Volunteer Fire Department. The event is a friendly competition that also involves food and a large trophy for the winning team. Money raised helps the fire department purchase equipment and train their staff.

      "It's also a fun time for people to get together in the middle of winter when there's not a whole bunch to do up here in the UP," said Michele Copley, an ice bowler.

      The tournament continues Sunday. The fire department asks for $10 per player, preferably with a team of four.
