Parking Violations Spike During Gus Macker Weekend

This year's Gus Macker 3-on-3 Tournament went off without a hitch; unless you were looking for a place to park. Police are proud to report that alcohol, marijuana, and disorderly arrests were at a minimum compared to past years. The only major problem was parking citations. Last year's tournament saw just 59 parking violations, while this year brought a whopping 138. Efforts from the Mason County Sheriff's Office alongside the Ludington Police Department helped ensure another successful and safe weekend.
