Landmark bracket contest

Don't look now, but it's that time of year again.

Yes, it's time for all those shameless plugs about The Landmark's annual NCAA Tournament bracket contest. This year's winner gets $50 in cash in the popular local contest.

The field of tourney teams will be announced this Sunday, March 10. Entry into The Landmark's contest is free and limited to one per person. 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 tournament game. As a potential tiebreaker, predict the total points scored in the championship game.

Then get your entry to The Landmark by 11 a.m. on Thursday, March 14. You can fax your bracket to us at 816-858-2313, mail it to us at PO Box 410, Platte City, Mo. 64079, e-mail it to, or bring it to The Landmark office at 252 Main Street, Platte City.

Be sure to put your name and phone number on your bracket. If you'd like e-mailed updates on the standings of the contest as the tournament progresses, put your e-mail address on your entry. The progress of the contest can also be followed each week in Ivan Foley's Between the Lines column. Those who enter will be able to test their prognosticating skills against Landmark columnists Greg Hall, CK Rairden, Brian Kubicki 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.
