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

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
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 firstname.lastname@example.org, 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.
