Once again, it’s March Madness time – and I’m hosting a Tournament Pool again for all you geeks out there who want to participate! Get ready – March 17th is approaching quickly!
Sadly, doesn’t look like my beloved Gators will last long this year, but at least they’re (most likely) invited to the Dance.
So, if you’d like to participate, you can sign up here – the group ID is 30220 and the password for the group is twitterrules. The buy-in is only $10 and winnings will be distributed to the top 3 brackets: 50% to the 1st place bracket, 30% to 2nd, and 20% to 3rd. Please notify me when you’ve registered your bracket to pay for your buy-in. I will be accepting PayPal payments for this.
Who’s your top pick this year? Will Pitt keep being a big spoiler, or will they be stopped by this year’s Cinderella team? Hope to see you in the Social Media Geeks tournament pool!

That’s right everyone – it’s time to start thinking about your brackets and who you’re going to be cheering for again. Sadly, it doesn’t look like my back-to-back National Championship Gators are even going to make it into the Tourney this year, so I might have to find another (SEC) team to call my fave 😦 But just like last year, I’ve decided to host a Tournament bracket pool. I’m opening this up to anyone and everyone who wants to play! Whether you’re a researcher, sourcer, recruiter, PR professional, social media buff, or you just stumbled onto my blog by accident, you’re invited. WE WANT YOU! This year, payouts will be in cash as opposed to prizes as I had last year. Reason for this – I just didn’t have time to solicit any prize contributions. However, if anyone wants to donate a cool prize, I’d surely accept it.
Here’s the skinny on my pool:
Here’s the link to my group – Researchers and Sourcers (group ID#41259 ; password is sourcing08)
$10 buy-in, just like last year – I will accept PayPal payment (preferred) or check
You must provide your email address when you register so I can send you a PayPal request to accept your payment or you will not be allowed to participate
Your payment MUST be received before 12:01am Tuesday, March 18th (Opening Round) or you will be deleted from the pool
Your picks must be made before the Tournament starts or you will be locked out
The overall pool winner will receive 50% of the pool cash; 2nd place, 30%, 3rd place, 20%… amounts will be determined by the number of folks participating
Are you GAME or LAME??? If you’re game, go to my Tournament site and get registered! You can’t set up brackets until Selection Sunday has come and gone, but you can get yourself ready. If you’re lame, well…that’s something you’ll have to deal with on your own 🙂 Hope to see many of you participate!
