2019 NCAA Bracket Challenge Fundraiser

Hi Everyone,
My name is John Flanigan proud Spartan Alum. This is my second year organizing this incredible event that Dan Wissink started 8 years ago. I'm looking to continue the success of this awesome event to help raise some funds for the North Hoops team as well as something to enjoy during March Madness. If you are receiving this email, you are more than likely a past participant in the NCAA bracket challenge fundraiser for the North Hoops Club. First, thanks for your past participation and making this fundraiser a huge success! It is very much appreciated!

Well, we are back at it for another year and we need your participation again this year to make it an even bigger success! Please email me ( any family member or friends names and email address and I will send them the flyer and invite with all the instructions to get in on the fun!

To keep it interesting and make the early rounds more interesting, we will again be "adding the seed" to each round. For example, if the first round is worth 1 point and you pick correctly a 12 seed to upset a 5 seed, you would receive 13 points. Hope that makes sense. You will be able to start filling out your brackets after selection Sunday on March 17th after "Selection Sunday". You will have until midnight of, March 20th to have your brackets filled out (Up to 3 per person @ $20 per bracket). Please make checks out to "John Flanigan" (because it makes it easier for me to make out one check to the club and pay the winners.) Send checks to John Flanigan, 2731 Hamilton St. Oshkosh, WI 54901. Payout will again be as follows: 50% of all proceeds to club, then remaining 50% of funds will pay 1st - 50%, 2nd - 30% and 3rd - 20%. This fundraiser has raised thousands of dollars for North Hoops Club so lets continue to build this awesome tradition.

Thanks again for your participation and making the fundraiser a continued success! Don't forget to get more f amily and friends involved. Please feel free to call or text me at 920-410-5350 with any questions.

With appreciation,
John Flanigan

P.S. This may not be the last reminder you receive. Just letting you know to start thinking about your picks, so you can get them in early!

Also, if you wish to no longer be included in this fundraiser, please reply so I can remove you from my list. Thank you!
