MARCH MADNESS 2019 TOURNAMENT UPDATE: As everyone filled out their brackets for the college March Madness, we once again approach the time when the real tournament starts to catch up with our own. With seven of our eight Elite Eight spots already claimed, and the final spot just about to be decided, March Madness enters the Sweet 16. Of the Elite Eight teams in our tournament, six are run by just three owners, as Derek Landel, Ron Emch and Bruce Monnin all advanced both of their teams to the Elite Eight. Could this be the year we have our first championship games where both teams have the same owner? For more information, visit the tournament website at http://user.nktelco.net/bdmonnin/mms_home_page.html . BPA PBeM REMINDER: ... all of the above PBeM fun is free to current BPA members. Others may qualify with a $10 Email membership in the year the event starts. All multi-day paid attendees to WBC are current BPA members for the balance of that calendar year.
