The Ninth Annual CAG March Madness Contest - Georgetown Destroyed All Of Our Brackets

The First, Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Seventh, and Eighth Annual March Madness contests have gone very well with all of them going down to the wire in determining the winners. I've got a few games to add to the prize pool right now and will be adding more before signups are over, though I would love to have some donated games from generous CAGs to help add to the pool. I'd prefer new, sealed games, but would accept opened games as long as they're mint and complete,
If you'd like to donate games, please PM me. This contest will be conducted through Yahoo's Tourney Pick-'em set-up, which streamlines the process and just lets everyone worry about their picks. You can find the quick link to the group here.

Current Prize Pool
$10 PSN code OR 800 MS points code (winners choice) - DaBoltz
Brink - Xbox 360 - FriskyTanuki
Dirt 3 - Xbox 360 - FriskyTanuki
Gears of War 3 - Xbox 360 - Like New - FriskyTanuki
LEGO Harry Potter Years 5-7 - PS3 - FriskyTanuki
Malicious - PSN Code - FriskyTanuki
Red Faction Armageddon - PS3 - FriskyTanuki
Space Invaders Extreme 2 - DS - FriskyTanuki
Start the Party! - PS3/Move - FriskyTanuki
Touch My Katamari - Vita - Like New - FriskyTanuki
TV Superstars - PS3/Move - FriskyTanuki
The Unfinished Swan - PSN Code - FriskyTanuki

Right now, the tourney itself is still being set up and will be set in stone on Selection Sunday (check out ESPN or whoever else that's doing coverage). However, in the meanwhile, you can sign up and join the CAG group to reserve your spot. The deadline to get your picks in is five minutes before the first game starts on Thursday, March 21.

Entry Guide: Just head to here to create your bracket and then go here and enter the group ID# (1793) and password (breadsdone) to sign up and join the group. The only thing I require of you is to post here if your pick set name or yahoo ID doesn't match your CAG ID so that I know it's you.

If I see people who haven't done this the Wednesday night before the tournament starts (March 20), you will be booted. I will have a list of everyone involved, so you have to be on the list to be eligible to win. I will make a check on the list to line up everyone the night before tipoff and boot anyone I cannot link to a CAG username, so you will have a chance to get back in if you let me know who you are. I will make the final sweep just before tipoff and kick any stragglers left on the list. I thought I didn't need to say this, but only one bracket is allowed per CAG. If I catch anybody with two brackets, both will be kicked out if they do not remove one of them.

Two years ago, Yahoo started allowing people to join groups after the tipoff, so I will be changing the password when tipoff happens to prevent late joiners from crashing the party. I would also prefer that those entering the contest be from the United States and Canada to minimize shipping costs and the chances of shipment errors. I also have the ability to alter the rules if other changes to Yahoo's Tourney rules have been made that interfere with the ones for the contest. The group can hold up to 500 people, so I think we'll have enough for anyone that wants to join. If we do reach that total, I'll create a new group for the rest of the CAGs that want to enter.

I will probably pick winners the same way I did last year: the top 3 scorers will get prizes. Depending on how many prizes there are, the top winner will get first pick on the list, then second place, and third place gets what's left. Any donators that win will be barred from choosing their own prizes.

Feel free to chat about the tourney, your team's chances, and all that fun stuff once you sign up. If you have any questions post here. Good luck to everyone that enters.

Also, keep your posts civil and mature. If you can't do that, then don't post in this thread.
