Gus Macker in Ludington is a charity event, benefiting local sports and service clubs, and organizers are looking forward to making significant donations again this year. The event is organized by the Ludington & Scottville Area Chamber of Commerce and supported by numerous business sponsors.

In 2019, Ludington tournament resulted in over $27,500 in donations back to the community. The Family Resource Center and high school athletic departments were among the recipients. The tournament has been postponed the last two years due to concerns over COVID-19, so the Chamber of Commerce is delighted by the return of the event for 2022.

Gus Macker Tournaments are designed for basketball players who love the fun of the driveway game – male or female, from ages 7 and over. With a Lake Michigan beach backdrop, Ludington will host 50 courts that will line Lakeshore Drive and Stearns Outer Drive. 

Community members interested in volunteering at the event should contact Kathy Fisher at 231.845.7018.
