Volunteers an invaluable asset at Gus Macker

NORWICH – While the focus this weekend will be on the 16th annual Gus Macker 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament itself, it’s a force of over 500 volunteers who routinely make the event so successful year after year.



From set up to tear down, to the dozens of Gus Busters who referee each and every game, these dedicated volunteers are on hand in the days leading up to the event and throughout the weekend, making sure that everything is running smoothly.

According to Norwich Family YMCA Executive Director Jamey Mullen, who’s volunteered every year since Gus Macker first came to Norwich, it’s really very simple – without the volunteers, many of whom return every year to help out, the tournament and fundraiser doesn’t happen.

From garbage pick-up to basket set up, tear down to “Gus-busting,” hospitality, registration and medical, the hundreds of volunteers at Gus Macker are an invaluable resource, said Mullen.
