Town of Fairview Hosts Family Fun 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament September 12-13

Are you ready to be part of the biggest community event ever brought to Fairview, Texas? Here’s your chance! The Town of Fairview is sponsoring a family fun 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament on Saturday, September 12 and Sunday, September 13. It will be held in the Village at Fairview shopping center located at US 75 and Stacy Road.

The tournament is designed so that anyone seven years and older can play: Short or tall, young or old, experienced or novice. This tournament maintains the purity and integrity of the old-fashioned driveway basketball game.

Three on three basketball pairs teams of 4 players, (3 players on the court at a time), against other teams that are matched by age, gender and skill level so that the games will be fun and competitive. This is a double elimination tournament with a guarantee of three scheduled games. Teams that lose their first two games will battle it out for the coveted title of “Toilet Bowl” champion. There will also be a slam dunk contest with a $500 prize. Slam dunk contestants must be registered for the tournament in order to participate.

The Town is partnering with the Gus Macker 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament program to run the tournament. The Gus Macker 3 on 3 program began in 1974 as a backyard neighborhood tournament. It continues today as one of the finest family oriented outdoor backyard playground style national basketball tournaments for male and female players of all ages, sizes and skill levels. You don’t have to be an NBA star, a rec league legend or a middle school star to be a part of the Macker experience.

Players, families and friends can enjoy the more than a million square feet of shopping, dining and entertainment available in the area when not playing.

Register your 4 member team of men, women or youth (from age 7). Make it fun for groups and form your basketball teams from your neighborhood, group of friends, recreational sports team, workplace or church. To register your team, visit www.macker.com. The registration fee is $35 per player ($140 per team). If your team is registered before July 1, 2015 a team discounted rate of $25 per player ($100 per team) is being offered.

The mail-in registration deadline for the tournament is August 7, 2015. The online registration deadline is August 10, 2015.

Watering Restrictions

Watering Restrictions


Watering Restrictions Eased in the Town of Fairview Effective May 1st  

North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD) water supply reservoirs have reached sufficient levels and capacities to allow the District to ease watering restrictions earlier than previously planned. Beginning May 1, 2015, NTMWD will terminate all drought stages and will implement its Water Conservation Plan that limits landscape watering to no more than two days per week, and only if needed. The Town of Fairview has taken the same actions as NTMWD and will terminate all drought stages effective May 1, 2015. Even though the Town of Fairview will no longer be under drought restrictions the town’s Water Conservation Plan will remain in effect, which restricts lawn and landscape irrigation to twice per week. With this change in watering restrictions Town of Fairview water customers are no longer restricted to watering on certain days of the week and can choose which two days they wish to irrigate.

The Town of Fairview Water Conservation Plan calls for the following water restrictions:

  • Lawn irrigation watering is prohibited from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. from April 1st to October 31st of each year.
  • Lawn and landscape irrigation limited to twice per week.
  • Watering of impervious surfaces is prohibited.
  • Outdoor watering during precipitation or freeze events is prohibited.
  • The use of treated water to fill or refill residential, amenity, and any other natural or manmade ponds is prohibited. A pond is considered to be a still body of water with a surface area of 500 square feet or more.
  • Rain and freeze sensors and/or ET or Smart controllers are required on all new irrigation systems. Rain and freeze sensors and/or ET or Smart controllers must be maintained to function properly.
  • “At home” car washing can be done only when using a water hose with a shut-off nozzle.
  • Watering areas that have been overseeded with cool season grasses is prohibited (such as rye grass or other similar grasses), except for golf courses and public athletic fields.

Below are a variety of tips that you might find helpful in your effort to conserve water:

•Repair leaks, running toilets, dripping faucets, and broken sprinkler heads.
•Water in the morning or evening when the temperatures are cooler.
•Plant native, drought tolerant plants that require less water.
•Adjust your lawn mower to at least one notch. A taller lawn holds more moisture.
•Water only when plants look like they need it. Most plants die from over-watering.

Some excellent resources regarding smart landscaping and water conservation are:
