Aug. 6-7, 2016 will be the 22nd year of the Sheboygan Gus Macker Basketball Tournament. Held along the shores of Lake Michigan near the beautiful Deland Park in Harbor Centre Marina, the two-day basketball tournament is open to players of all ages and abilities. Put 715 Broughton Drive, Sheboygan into your GPS and head towards the fun.
The tournament, run by dozens of dedicated volunteers, benefits the Boys & Girls Clubs of Sheboygan County and Lakeland College.
Approximately 350 teams are expected to take to the courts in 3-on-3 play at the Sheboygan Gus Macker. Early registration is encouraged. Teams are limited to four people each. In addition to tournament play, there will be a slam-dunk contest, a Dream Court for the mini-Mackers, and more.
For those of you looking for additional quality family time, be sure to indulge and enjoy the soft sands of Lake Michigan. The clean, blue water is located just steps away from the tournament.
Great onsite food and concessions will be available, in addition to Sheboygan’s fantastic restaurant scene. Another destination for fun and music is Sheboygan’s annual Sheboygan Jaycees Brat Days Festival which is being held the same weekend (July 30-Aug. 1), just a few miles away. Entertainment includes a carnival, brats of all flavors and genres, live music and more. Located in Kiwanis Park, http://brat-days.com/.
