Ok! The connection is a stretch but I’m saving up for a new cooker and $2,500 would go a long way towards it.
Famous Dave’s today announced the launch of its “BBQ Bracket Busters(TM)” Contest, which offers basketball fans the opportunity to win up to $2,500 cash while watching the 2010 NCAA(R) Men’s College Basketball Tournament.
“This is the first time Famous Dave’s has ever offered a contest surrounding the popular tournament,” said Aric Nissen, Vice President of Marketing and Research and Development for Famous Dave’s. “Our mission is to offer guests a unique experience and reward them with a fun opportunity while enjoying this year’s tournament. We wanted to further engage sports fans and offer an opportunity for them to win cash while doing something they enjoy.”
Famous Dave’s invites basketball fans nationwide to participate in the contest. For those who have never set foot on a basketball court – no worries. Basketball knowledge is not required. In fact, that may be helpful! To enter, contestants simply pick the one game they believe will be the biggest upset of the 32 games in the first round of the 2010 NCAA(R) Men’s College Basketball Tournament. Picks must be submitted online at http://www.bbqbracketbusters.com no later than 11:59 p.m. Central Standard Time on Wednesday, March 17, 2010.
For those who accurately pick the biggest upset in the first round, they will continue to the next and final level of the contest. In this level, remaining contestants select the one game they believe will be the biggest upset in the tournament’s third round, as well as complete two tie breakers. The contest ends following the final game of the third round of the 2010 NCAA(R) Men’s College Basketball Tournament on Friday, March 26, 2010.
To win prizes, contestants must pick the one biggest upset from the tournament’s first and third rounds and win applicable tie breakers.
