History and Objectives
Updated On: Feb 01, 2012

 

 
 
The history and objectives of the
 
I.A.F.F. MEMORIAL GOLF TOURNAMENT.
 
In the spring of 2002, several members of Local 104 thought that a golf tournament would be an ideal way to bring together members of area I.A.F.F. locals for a day of relaxation and camaraderie. The events of September 11, 2001 weighted heavily on everyone’s mind and it seemed like the only time members of our Locals got together were during somber ceremonies.
 
The first invite letter referred to the tournament as the first annual “I.A.F.F. Local 104 Golf Tournament for I.A.F.F. members”. Local 104 reached out to Scranton Local 60 and Hazleton Local 507 for ideas and cooperation on getting interest in participation of this event. Award plaques were created for the winners of the Championship, First, Second, and Third flights and the name officially became the  I.A.F.F. MEMORIAL GOLF TOURNAMENT.
 
Wilkes-Barre hosted the first two tournaments followed by Scranton and Hazleton and then back to Wilkes-Barre in 2005. The tournament grew in popularity and has since been hosted by Bethlehem and Easton. Teams from Scranton, Wilkes-Barre, Hazleton, Nanticoke, Bethlehem, Easton, Kingston, and the P.P.F.F.A Executive Board participated annually. These Locals were associated with the North East Pennsylvania Professional Fire Fighters Association (N.E.P.P.F.F.A.). The Tournament committee’s goal was to rotate to each of the Locals associated with the N.E.P.P.F.F.A..
 
The Executive Board of the N.E.P.P.F.F.A. observed the good will this Tournament created among the members and adopted this Tournament and also pushed the Tournament.
 
Much to the delight of the committee Upper Darby Local 2493 will host the 2012 tournament.  Luzerne County Local 840 has expressed interest in hosting in 2013.
 
The committee believes in Local autonomy but asks to keep the following objectives and rules be observed:
 
1. While the Tournament is meant for I.A.F.F. members, the committee has allowed civilians affiliated with the Locals to participate with the rule that a majority of the foursome be I.A.F.F. Members or Retired I.A.F.F. members to qualify for the plaques.
 
2. The cost of the entrance fee be kept as low as possible for increased participation.
 
3. The main goal of this Tournament is relaxation and camaraderie, not extreme competitiveness for prizes.   This Tournament is for Members with all levels of Golfing expertise to enjoy themselves. Please take that into consideration when awarding additional prizes for the Flight winners.
 
4. The James Robeson Award was created in 2008 to acknowledge the member from the Host Local that did the most behind the scene to make the Tournament a success.
