Posts tagged with Contest has you covered — from Kansas City to Tulsa (?) and maybe even, possibly, could it be, Houston; details on KUsports Bracket Challenge revealed

With the Big 12 Tournament literally days away, is about to kick its coverage into high gear.

Today, we're unveiling our Men's Big 12 Tournament and NCAA Tournament homepages. Bookmark them today, as they're going to get a lot more interesting over the next week or three.

In addition to all the coverage we're going to offer here — videos, blogs, stories, photos — we're also excited to announce details on one long-running tradition and one that's a little younger.

First, this week, we're excited to announce is returning to the Power & Light district to be part of the pre-tournament Fan Fest. Stop be our tent for free stuff, to sign up for our KU scoring text messages and e-mail alerts, as well as meet and talk to members of our staff. We expect Tom Keegan, Jesse Newell, Nick Nelson, Nick Krug and Matt Tait — among others — to stop by before or after KU's games. In addition, we're also excited to announce that we'll be moving our Big 12 tournament party inside Johnny's Tavern during the game. We'll have a live fan cam from Johnny's that we'll be embedding on the side of our live game coverage.

If you're going to be down in Power & Light, make sure you stop by.

The second announcement pertains to the Bracket Challenge. This year, we're going to take the changes the NCAA is making as a chance to make some of our own. In years past, you haven't had to choose the winner of the play-in game. This year, with four play-in games, you will. So that means the contest will only be open from Sunday night through Tuesday night. Come back to after the brackets are announced and make sure you enter for a chance to win a plasma HDTV, courtesy of Kief's, here in Lawrence. Presenting sponsors for this year's bracket contest include Henry T's, Brotherhood Bank, Lynn Electric, Crown Automotive and Intrust Bank.


Here’s a chance to win a Pachamama’s gift card — just for checking our work

I love to give stuff away.

Books, shirts, coffee mugs and concert tickets. You name it, if we get it, I want to give it to you, our loyal users.

Today, I'm announcing a new giveaway. I'm calling it the Restaurant Database Check Up. The prize is one of two $20 gift cards to Pachamama's Restaurant.

All you have to do is check our work (clever headline, no?). Over the past three weeks, we've been working hard to prune our restaurant database. We've taken out some closed restaurants and added some new ones we were missing.

Now it's time for you to tell us what we're still missing. Full details for the contest are available over on the entry page, but the most important detail is you have from today through next Friday at 5 p.m. to get any error reports in.

Since we launched this contest via social media last night, we've received nearly 10 entries. But I'm sure there are a couple more out there. So, if you want a chance at one of two $20 Pachamama's gift cards, check your favorite restaurants in our restaurant database and let us know what still is missing.

Happy hunting!
