Quincy’s Mike Lavery Named to The Gus Macker Hall of Fame

We had Scott McNeal on the air with us this morning. Scott is the founder of Gus Macker Basketball which will be coming to Quincy for the 23rd consecutive year on May 25 and 26 at Washington Park. Gus Macker itself is celebrating it’s 40th year of existence since it’s founding in Lowell, Michigan in 1974. Macker basketball probably would never had happened if it weren’t for Quincy’s Mike Lavery.

The Quincy event began in 1990 when Quincy Exchange Club member Mike Lavery attended another Macker tournament and brought the idea to the Quincy Exchange Club which held its initial event in 1991. It was an idea that has raised thousands of dollars for the betterment of the Quincy Community. All of the monies raised from Gus Macker are used for the local projects of the Exchange Club.

As a result, it was announced today that Mike Lavery has been selected to join the Gus Macker Hall of Fame. He will join other notables including Indiana Coach Tom Crean and Sports Illustrated senior writer Alexander Wolff.  He will be inducted at the 2013 Macker Anniversary Festival on August 1st through August 4th in Belding, Michigan. Lavery will be the 43rd inductee into the Macker Hall of Fame.

Congratulations to Quincy’s Mr. Macker, Mike Lavery.
