The one and only Gus Macker 3-on-3 Basketball, America's largest outdoor basketball tournament, will be held in Olean on August 20-22.

The original "Gus Macker 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament" was started in 1974 by Scott McNeal in his parent's driveway.  It now includes over 200,000 players and 1.7 million spectators who enjoy 3-on-3 competition!

Macker tournaments are basketball for everybody with teams bracketed based on levels of experience, size and more. Everybody gets to play for trophies, and the event takes on a family friendly festival atmosphere.  It's great for spectators to come and watch from the sidelines, cheering on their favorite team in all the exciting game after game action!

Meaning of the word Cattaraugus

CATTARAUGUS, from a Seneca Indian word meaning “bad smelling banks,” referring to the odor of natural gas leaking from rock seams. http://www.dos.ny.gov/info/pdfs/countynames.pdf

The word "Cattaraugus" means "foul-smelling river bank." This name is a result of the natural gas that oozes from the river mud. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cattaraugus_Creek.

In our opinion, only some of the river banks are bad smelling. Come on over and visit a creek in Cattaraugus County and tell us what you think.
