CELEBRATING 45 Years of 3-ON-3
LEARN MORE ABOUT THE
Mt. PLEASANT, MI GUS MACKER
Gus Macker returns to Central Michigan University and the streets of Mt. Pleasant on April 28-29 for the first Michigan Macker of 2018. This unique 3-on-3 basketball festival will take place in and around historic Finch Fieldhouse in the heart of CMU's campus with brackets for all ages.
As Gus Macker celebrates its 45th year of operation, CMU will celebrate its 10th anniversary of having a Macker, thanks to 1979 alumnus and Gus Macker creator Scott McNeal. Experience 3-on-3 basketball at its very best and embrace this year's theme: "THE WIZARD OF AHHHS: THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE FINCH" based on the iconic movie.
The CMU / Mt. Pleasant tournament is the only Macker event completely planned, organized and executed by college students. Thirty-three recreation and event management students, enrolled in RPL 333 - Production of Festivals and Events, serve as the operational team taught by CMU recreation professors Dr. Tim (T.O.) Otteman and Brittany Milan. As always, the tournament will have registered officials on every court!
