LACE THEM UP FOR ONE OF THE LARGEST MACKERS IN THE COUNTRY IN ONE OF THE FRIENDLIEST TOWNS IN THE COUNTRY. MIDLAND MICHIGAN WILL AGAIN BE THE HOST FOR OUR SEVENTH ANNUAL GUS MACKER. WE BECAME THE MOST SUCCESSFUL “ROOKIE” MACKER IN OVER 10 YEARS IN 2014 WITH OVER 254 TEAMS PARTICIPATING AND WE HAVE GROWN EVERY YEAR WITH OUR GOAL OF 400 TEAMS THIS YEAR. MIDLAND ROLLS OUT THE RED CARPET FOR OUR VISITORS AND WITH THE NEW DOWNTOWN STREETSCAPE IT IS EVEN MORE PLAYER AND FAN-FRIENDLY.

THE COURTS WILL BE LAID OUT DOWN MAIN STREET SURROUNDED BY GREAT RETAIL SHOPPING AND RESTAURANTS. ALL COURTS WILL HAVE LICENSED OFFICIALS AGAIN THIS YEAR. SOME OF THE SPECIAL EVENTS PLANNED INCLUDE FREE BASKETBALL CLINICS (SPONSORED BY MIDLAND BASKETBALL ACADEMY), A THREE-POINT CONTEST, AND THE EVER-POPULAR SLAM DUNK CONTEST. PROCEEDS FROM THE MIDLAND MACKER BENEFIT TWO GREAT LOCAL ORGANIZATIONS; THE LEGACY CENTER FOR COMMUNITY SUCCESS AND NORTHWOOD MEN’S BASKETBALL.
