Bracket battle entry deadline is nearing

Get your entries in now!

The Landmark’s 12th annual NCAA bracket contest gets underway this week. Deadline for entry is Thursday by 11 a.m.

Fax your bracket now to 816-858-2313 or email to

Entries can also be dropped in a box on the counter inside The Landmark office at 252 Main Street, Platte City.

Entry is free and limited to one per person. Winner will receive a $100 cash prize and ever-important bragging rights.

Again this year, Landmark publisher Ivan Foley is offering rewards to those who finish with a higher score than he does. Anyone with a better score than Foley will receive two one-year subscriptions to The Landmark, the only county-wide newspaper. Both years can be applied to the entrant’s subscription or keep one for yourself and give one year to a friend or family member.

Be sure to write your name and phone number on your bracket.

Scoring will be done as follows:

Two points for each correct first round pick; four points for second round winners; six points for third round winners; eight points in the fourth round; 15 points in the fifth round and 25 points for picking the tourney champion.

As a potential tiebreaker, write on your bracket the number of total points will be scored in the championship game.
