NORWICH – How is this for a sales pitch for potential Gus Macker volunteers?
Come join the best Gus Buster team in the country.
Longtime local tournament director, Tom Revoir of the Norwich YMCA, said his team of Busters picked up a prestigious award at a recent regional Gus Macker meeting in Cicero (near Syracuse).
“We had no idea we were getting an award,” Revoir said, who attended the meeting with several other local volunteers. “Scott McNeal (Gus Macker’s president) announced at the meeting that Norwich was the national Gus Buster program of the year for 2010. He stated that we were the most organized and have great busters.”
Revoir credits the continuity among the Gus Buster leadership from year to year as a key factor in such a smooth running tournament. Head buster Mark Abbott and Super Buster, Steve Benenati, have been with the tournament since day one. “Steve and Mark put countless hours into this before, during, and after the tournament,” Revoir said, who also named at least a dozen other key contributors. “We have so many great people coming back year after year to volunteer and help us out.”
