Instructions for March Madness Boot Camp Basketball Bracket! — Read Carefully!
1. Fill out TWO identical brackets in PEN, all the way to your National Champion. Write your name in PEN on each copy. PLUS, guess a total combined score for the final game, to be used as a tie breaker. (Example: Gonzaga 50, Austin Peay 52 = 102) Write that number next to your name. The person closest to the final combined score of 102 would be the winner in the event of a tie.
2. Paperclip $20 to one copy of your bracket, filled out in PEN, and give both to me. I’ll turn over all brackets to Steve Jackson, the Official Tournament Director, and will keep up with the point totals. I’ll hold on to the money and the Tournament Director’s bracket.
3. The winner of the “winner takes all” pot is the person with the most points, determined by the following point system:
1 point for each of your picks making it to the second round,
2 points for each of your teams making it to the Sweet Sixteen,
4 points for each of your teams advancing to the Elite Eight,
8 points for each of your teams making it to the Final Four,
12 points for each of your teams advancing to The Final,
16 points for choosing the National Champion.
4. Lose your mind, it’s MARCH MADNESS BAAAABY!
