The “Gus Maki” 3-on-3 Basketball competition first held during Finn Fest ’96 is making a return appearance during Finn Grand Fest 2005. The tournament will take place on Saturday, August 13 at the Marquette City Gymnasium on Baraga Aveanue.
“We wanted to bring back the Gus Maki because of its success in 1996 and we know how popular basketball is to Upper Peninsula residents,” stated Jim Goin, Tournament Director. “3-on-3 competition is fun and doable for all ages.”
There will be male and female divisions as well as age divisions. All participants will receive a Finn Grand Fest “Gus Maki” T-shirt while champions in the age categories will receive medals as well. Entry fee is $56 per team. The tournament is open to 60 teams with entry deadline on August 7, 2005.
