Mase Madness VI was held over the weekend at the Johnson City Middle School in their dual gymnasium complex.  Several hundred basketball teams took part in the three-day event.  Competitive levels ranged from players with Division I experience to those who compete or competed at the high school or recreation league level to 12 and under ages as well.

Proceeds from Mase Madness benefit the Mason P. McKan Benevolence Fund.  The fund helps support youth and youth programs in our community.  Heading into this weekend's tournament close to $60,000 had been raised over the previous five years.
