Gus Macker Declares Otsego is the Place to G0
The 6th Otsego Gus Macker 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament will bounce into action this summer in the neighborhood surrounding City Hall and promises to be a festival of family fun.
Otsego Main Street, an economic development and community empowerment program adopted by the city in 2013, will present the tournament. Otsego Main Street strategically chooses events and activities that strengthen the local economy and bring unique recreation to residents and visitors.
That makes Gus Macker, the most unique and best basketball tournament in the world, a perfect fit. The tournament promises to bring in thousands of players and fans, and Otsego is thrilled. Residents, schools and businesses have banded together to help make it a special weekend.
Hotels are available on West Main (M-43) and Stadium Drive in Kalamazoo
