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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
