The most popular Gus Macker Tour stop…..the beachfront tournament in Ludington, Michigan is hosting it’s 25th birthday party on June 18-19, 2016. This Macker is right on the shores of Lake Michigan, just a short jumpshot from downtown Ludington at Stearns Park. The tournament has been the largest on the Macker schedule for years due to the beautiful setting and small town hospitality. The Ludington/Scottville Chamber of Commerce is the host organization, along with the City of Ludington and numerous local charity and civic groups. This 25th edition of the Ludington Macker will include many special anniversary activities, so please plan to attend this historic celebration.
The short video clip is of last year’s exciting Ludington Macker Dunk Contest, in which international dunk legend, Porter Mayberry, dunks over a motorcycle and rider to take home the dunk title. The 5’5” Porter travels the world entertaining crowds with his highflying 53” vertical jumping ability. His legend has been featured through social media for a few years, where Lebron James and other basketball celebrities spotted his talent. Porter is from Grand Rapids, Michigan and has been to many Gus Macker events….winning his first Macker dunk contest on the Central Michigan University campus in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan three years ago.
