Gus Macker Tournament Returning to Decatur
If you are a basketball fan and love to play the game, grab your friends because the Gus Macker 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament is returning to Decatur next summer.
The time-old tradition started back in the summer of 1974 by a couple of kids who loved to play 3-on-3 basketball. The tradition continued on for years and will be in the Decatur area for the next few years.
"Gus Macker is a 3-on-3 basketball tournament where everybody can play," tournament sales director Mike Fuller said. "Ages 10 years old to 40 years old, 60 years old...it doesn't matter."
The tournament averages over 500 participants and will take place July 13-14 in Decatur.
"You don't have to be a superstar, but it's a community oriented event that brings everybody to the community and we kinda turn it into a little festival," Fuller said.
