Landmark's annual bracket contest ready

Prize money and pride are on the line in The Landmark's annual NCAA basketball tournament bracket contest. Prize money this year is $50 to the winner. Entry is free and limited to one entry per person.

The field of 64 teams will be announced on Sunday, March 10. To enter, fill out a copy of the bracket (clip one out of the daily papers, pull one off the Internet, or simply make your own legible copy) predicting winners for every tourney game. As a potential tiebreaker, predict the total points scored in the championship game.

There are several ways to get your entry to us. The most popular way has been by fax to 816-858-2313. Entries can also be emailed to, mailed to The Landmark, PO Box 410, Platte City, Mo. 64079, or brought to The Landmark office at 252 Main Street, Platte City.

Entries are due by 11 a.m. on Thursday, March 14. This part is very important: Be sure to put your name and phone number on your entry. If you'd like emailed updates on the standings of the contest as the tournament progresses, put your email address on your entry.

Those who enter will be able to test their prognosticating skills against Landmark columnists Greg Hall, CK Rairden and Ivan Foley.

The Landmark's scoring system works this way: One point is given for each correct first round pick, two points for a correct second round pick, three for a third rounder, etc.
