Gus Macker gets big assist from volunteer groups
Today marks 10 years of the Gus Macker 3-on-3 basketball tournament being held on the streets of downtown Morris, and it's popularity has stayed strong in the last decade.
"It's been very well received. We've had good numbers from the very beginning, and it's nice to see the continued interest in the tournament," said Julie Applegate, executive director of the Morris Downtown Development Partnership, which hosts the event.
This year, 276 teams are playing, just a bit shy of last year's 284 teams, which was tied for the record of total teams set in 2005. In the past nine years, more than $92,000 has been raised and given back to organizations in the community who have volunteers work the annual tournament.
