(SALEM, Ore. ) - Thousands of basketball players and fans will descend upon Oregon's Capitol City this Thursday through Sunday for the 16th annual Oregon National Guard Hoopla.

Streets in front of, and around the Oregon State Capitol Building are transformed into basketball courts for the annual 3-on-3 event. Organizers and the City of Salem say they expect some 800 teams and 700 volunteers to take part in this years event, which is free and open to the public.

Also to added to this years event, Bob's Hamburgers will have a booth all tournament long. The booth, will be selling the same food they did at the Marion County Fair, including: hamburgers, cheeseburgers, double cheeseburgers, Big Brutes, fries, and Kid's Meals.

They will also be selling bottles of Bob's famous secret sauce during the Hoopla. The best news is that 100 percent of the net sales from the bottled secret sauce as well as a percentage of the gross food sales will be donated directly to Bob Corey's non profit Chemeketa scholarship fund.
