23rd ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION!!!NOTICE: YOU MAY REGISTER NOW, BUT THE BRACKETS WILL NOT BE
AVAILABLE UNTIL MONDAY MARCH 14, 2016
The rules are pretty simple. Each participant will be allowed to complete
up to two different brackets. When you register you will be asked for
Number of Brackets
Brackets must be completed before tip-off on Thursday, March 17, 2016 (we're
not including the play-in games). There are no late entries,
if you miss signing up before the opening tip, you're out. You should
receive confirmation of your entry via e-mail.
The donation is $15 per bracket. If you fill
out 2 brackets and only pay for one, the commissioners will decide
which bracket stays and which bracket gets eliminated. Each registrant
is limited to a maximum of two brackets. Also, for tracking purposes
please use your real name or a close facsimile. When you register you
are asked to choose a username. This is used for logging in and will not
be seen by other players.
Payment must be received by
one of the commissioners by Monday, March 21, 2016
or you will be disqualified. If you cannot pay by March 24th you must notify me in some form or fashion. Remember you can always pay then continue
to edit your picks prior to Thursday at noon.
PERMANENT RULE CHANGE: We have implemented a change in the FIRST ROUND points. Instead of earning 1 point for each win, you will receive the same points as the team's seed. For example, if you choose a #12 seed to upset a #5 seed team, you would receive 12 points for that game if they win. Those who choose the #5 seed would receive 5 points for a win. This scoring system encourages you to choose underdogs and rewards you when they win.
Please send your check or money order to me personally at:
