Mike Haerling talks with GoLakeChelan about 18th Annual 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament

8/21/11 (30)

GoLakeChelan visits with Mike Haerling, Tournament Director, about 18th Annual Chelan 3-on-3 Tournament. 

GoLakeChelan's Dave Rogge caught up with Tournament Director, Mike Haerling.  He found him trying to stay cool under the registration and tournament management tent.  Mike shared with us that this was his 13th year of managing the tournament and the team registration has grown each year.  This year they had 92 team compared with 72 last year.  Dave asked why he thought the tournament was such a draw.  He pointed out that the tournament is scheduled the same weekend (3rd wknd of August) every year which gives parents an opportunity to block it out on the calendar.  He also mentioned that many families take this an opportunity to make this a vacation spot.  We generally have good weather and that with the lake and the tournament make it a great draw.  Take a moment to listen to Mike and his other thoughts about the tournament success.
