Gus Macker’s 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament
This nationwide event encourages basketball players of all skill levels to compete in a tournament that is great for the community. CMU is the only university in the country and the only one in Macker history to have college students organize their tournament. 2018 will be the 9th consecutive year of the Gus Macker class at CMU!
Students who take the Gus Macker RPL 333 class are given the unique opportunity to hone their event planning and management skills, putting on this large recreational event for CMU and communities in mid-Michigan. It has been a big success story.
Scott McNeal’s Dedication
The creator of Gus Macker, Scott McNeal, is a 1979 alumnus of CMU who has already donated $100,000 to the auxiliary gym in McGuirk Arena after famed coach Dick Parfitt.
He has generously committed to ten more years of Macker at CMU beginning in 2019 and another $100,000 to make sure that future Gus Macker events at CMU deliver the same joy to participants as in years past. Of every $10,000 contributed annually, $1,000 will go toward scholarships for students who have taken the Gus Macker RPL 333 class. Help us reach $1,000 more to begin thanking RPL students from the 2018 class and help in creating an annual CMU tradition!
