'Count the Basketballs' winners

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

You didn't have to be a basketball pro to win with the "Count the Basketballs" contest part of the Times-Gazette / Kincaid Bracket Bucks contest. While most filled out the NCAA bracket for a chance at winning the first place local prize of a 42" Panasonic TV and second place local prize, a Holland Companion grill, both from Kincaid Service Co., many players also entered the "Count the Basketballs" contest, where a random drawing from correct entries netted great prizes for five lucky winners. The correct number of basketballs in the 26 ads appearing on pages 2, 3 and 4 of the special section was 18. Several local business "celebrities" joined the T-G in sponsoring the Bracket Bucks contest. The first and second place high point bracket winners will be announced Wednesday, April 10, in the Times-Gazette.
