Gus Macker returns to Central Michigan University and the streets of Mt. Pleasant on April 27-28 for the first outdoor Michigan Macker of 2019. 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. Gus Macker celebrates its 11th year of operation at CMU thanks to 1979 alumnus and Gus Macker creator Scott McNeal.
The CMU / Mt. Pleasant tournament is the only Macker event completely planned, organized and executed by college students. Thirty-seven recreation and event management students, enrolled in RPL 333 - Production of Festivals and Events, serve as the operational team taught by CMU recreation professor Dr. Tim (T.O.) Otteman. As always, the tournament will have registered officials on every court! Experience 3-on-3 basketball at its very best and embrace this year's Dr. Seuss based theme in the 10th year of the class as they say CHEERS TO 10 YEARS: THE FUSS ABOUT GUS / GREEN EGGS AND SLAMS!
The 2019 CMU / Mt. Pleasant Gus Macker benefits CMU through contributions to the university and partnered scholarships.
