Well, we just wrapped up our fifth year of the Gus Macker 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament held at Drivers Village, and what a weekend it was. The weather cooperated beautifully and that provided us with extremely large crowds which included at times three generations of family members.

The event went off without a hitch — well, maybe until the rains on Sunday morning that dampened but didn’t deter the enthusiasm of volunteers set on getting the field in condition to play the championship game.
