In the vibrant town of Ludington, where the love for basketball knows no bounds, a remarkable chapter in the Gus Macker saga was about to unfold. Dr. Andrew Riemer, the visionary behind Riemer Eye Center and Stix Bar, joined forces with the charismatic Chris Nicholas, the owner of 102.7 WMOM and 99.9 WHCH Radio, on a mission that would redefine Ludington's basketball legacy.
Their shared passion ignited a spark that would aim to make the Ludington Gus Macker not just an event, but a grand spectacle – the largest and most thrilling Macker tournament. With an unwavering commitment to community, they sought the blessing of the Ludington City Council to take the helm.
