NCAA Pool Complete!

GANCAAgif-2016Ten Penny Construction sponsors an annual NCAA Bracket Challenge with Gontram Architecture, and it is now complete!  Congratulations to all of the winners, and to the ultimate loser!

To see the final results, click HERE.

Since 1998, Gontram Architecture has hosted its NCAA Pool for the Men’s Division I tournament.  As in years past, there is NO entry fee, but lots of great prizes to be won! There’s even a nice trophy for the biggest loser.

New for 2016:  Jim Valvano’s words in his 1993 ESPY speech, “Don’t Give Up . . . Don’t Ever Give Up!”, have motivated millions of people to battle cancer and find a cure.  His dream of curing cancer is still not realized, but is closer because of his inspiration.  This year, for every Pool entry received, Gontram Architecture will donate $1 to The V Foundation for Cancer Research.  Participants also have to opportunity to give towards our “team” HERE, but it is not mandatory to play in our Pool.  We just wanted to give back to the organization founded by one of the most memorable personalities of this special Tournament.

10d NCAA Bowl Game Pick ‘Em Pool Complete

BowlPrizesAlabama wins the 2016 NCAA FBS Playoff in an exciting win against Clemson, 45-40!  That win also signals the end of Gontram Architecture’s NCAA Bowl Game Pick ‘Em Pool.

As in many years past, Gontram Architecture hosted its Annual NCAA Bowl Game Pick ‘Em Pool! As always, this is a FREE pool, open to (almost) anyone, with great prizes for the winners, and a horse’s butt bobble head trophy for the last place winner!

Tonia Smith claims 1st Place and the Samsung Tablet!  Jay Bissette comes in 2nd, Cathee Eberle finishes in 3rd.  Sami Dawson wins the horse’s butt trophy for coming in Last.  Many thanks to our great Sponsors (Harris Structural Design, WindDesigns – The Flag Shop, and Ten Penny Construction for making these great prizes possible!)

You can check out the Final Standings and other reports by going HERE.

As in year’s past, bowl game points are based upon their approximate or past payout value rounded to the nearest million. For instance, the Belk Bowl pays out $1,600,000+/- to the teams so it is worth 2 points. The Sugar Bowl pays out $18 million to those teams, so that game is worth 18 points. A 5 point bonus is given to the National Championship Game.
