Darien Center, N.Y. (WKBW-TV) After months of obstacles and worry, the Gus Macker was a success according to organizers.

About 1600 players from 400 teams hit the courts at the new location at Darien Lake. The numbers are less than other years, but organizers say considering the uncertainty and the weather this year, it was a good turnout.

Officials say they are hoping to move the tournament to Darien Lake permanently, but nothing is official yet.
