Gus macker fans and participants,
On behalf of the Peoria City Council and the citizens of Peoria, I would like to offer a warm "Welcome to Peoria" to all of you! Whether it is your first trip to Peoria or you're a returning fan, our goal is to make the return of the Gus Macker one you'll remember.
Peoria is a basketball town with a history of hosting the IHSA March Madness and a legacy of basketball excellence from our public schools to Bradley University. We'd also like to thank Northwoods Community Church for providing a spectacular new location with additional activities for fans of all ages.
As we welcome you to your return to Peoria, we invite you to explore the new surroundings of this years event. This years Gus Macker tournament is located just a short drive from some of Peoria's newest restaurants, retail stores, hotels and recreational activities.
Chosen as an All-American City on four occasions, we believe Peoria truly is a wonderful place in which to live, work, and raise a family. We welcome back the Gus Macker. Please enjoy your stay, and consider Peoria as your home away from home.
Mayor Jim Ardis
