Little City Madness 2012: Now With Prizes!

March 13, 2012 by · 1 Comment 

March 13, 2012

In 2010, then Falls Church Times’ Food Reporter, Jimmy Scarano, hosted our first Falls Church Times March Madness Pick’em Tournament. It was a close and exciting battle narrowly won by Daniel Butler over Dennis Zaenger from the tie-breaker. Without Jimmy’s leadership, the Tournament failed to launch in 2011, but is back this year for “Little City Madness 2012”.

You can test your basketball knowledge and good fortune against those of your fellow Little-cityzens in the 2012 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament pick’em challenge. Victors will get bragging rights (for at least a year) and three lucky participants will take home gift certificates to one of our fine restaurants and retailers in Falls Church City – the 1st place winner will receive $75 in gift certificates, 2nd place $25, and last place $5 (you must have a complete bracket to compete for last place!).

Sign-up now. You’ll want to get your bracket in before play starts on Thursday March 15. To join

  • go to the tournament website
  • sign-in or sign-up
  • the password is “fctimes”
  • fill in your bracket
  • watch the games and results come in.

You can sign-up after 3/15, but you won’t be able to get as many points so don’t hesitate. If you have questions, comments, or prizes send a note to Dave Witzel.

See you in the stands.
