Gus Macker is a nationally recognized 3-on-3 tournament, which is produced by local communities. Teams of various ages, sizes and talent compete against other teams of similar makeup for a chance to win top-quality trophies. By prohibiting alcohol or tobacco-related sponsors, the Macker has maintained the wholesome nature and pure fun of the event, which draws players, spectators and media. The Gus Macker provides an overall economic impact to tournament sites, bringing thousands of players and fans into the community. In addition, the local organizers donate proceeds from their event to local charities.



Hundreds of thousands of dollars are brought into the Mason County community by this event. Over $1.3 million dollars have benefited our local charities throughout the years. Ludington’s Gus Macker provides a great financial boost to our community, benefitting our region economically many times over. As in past years, The Gus Macker committee has reached the 900 team limit, bringing in 4,000 players and an estimated spectator crowd of 25,000 to the Ludington region. In 2019, a total of $12,500 was given directly to charities.
