Macker to Have Registered Officials This Year to Curb Rough Play

The Quincy Exchange Club is actively addressing a major concern about the Gus Macker 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament which is set for May 24 and 25. That concern is the officiating that has taken place over the years, which has led to some "rough" play on the courts.
