ACT-NOW and the Gerrish Township Police Department held their 2nd annual
Guns and Hoses Softball Tournament at the Markey Township Softball fields on
Co Rd. 100 on Saturday 7-21-07. The tournament was a 5 team double elimination
tournament with a combined team from the Gerrish Township Police, Fire/EMS and ACT-NOW,
a combined Roscommon County Sheriff Dept and Higgins Township Fire Dept. team,
Markey Township Fire/EMS team, Markey Township Baptist Church Red team and of course the
celebrity TV 9&10 News team. The tournament began at 9:00 a.m. and continued until approx. 6:00 p.m.
where the combined Roscommon County Sheriff Dept and Higgins Township Fire Dept. team
took home the trophy in a very close championship game that had them edging out the
Markey Baptist Red team 4-3 for the bragging rights and the traveling trophy in 2007. All
teams took home a mean sun burn from the experiencing.
Congratulations and thank you to all for participating. The tournament netted nearly $500.00
for the Shop with a Cop program.
