Basketball fans of Buffalo rejoice! It’s already June and the Gus Macker is nearly upon us. Started in 1974 by Scott McNeal (alias Gus Macker) on his parents’ driveway in Lowell, Michigan, the Gus Macker has since expanded to include over 200,000 players in over 75 cities. Despite our hockey and football crazed reputation, Buffalo now hosts the largest Gus Macker tournament in the country with over 1,000 teams and 4,000 players competing in last year’s tournament. At the scale it has currently reached it is safe to say that it is now more than just a basketball tournament, but one of the most significant events of the entire summer. Hopefully this year the weather will be more accommodating than last year. Don’t delay in signing up, there is less than one week left to register!
