The Hesston Record’s Hoops basketball picks contest begins with this week’s slate of games.
For 2014, pickers will have 10 games where they must forecast the correct winner. There is a mix of high school and college games and entries are due to The Record office by 5 p.m. each Friday or can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The person with the most correct picks wins $25 in Hoops Bucks weekly that can be spent at El Cerrito, True Value in Hesston, Waters Edge, Kropf Lumber, Hesston Pharmacy, Hesston Decorating Center and Hesston Food Market.
The Record keeps track of the weekly winners and a grand prize winner will get $75 in Hoops Bucks.
“This is a fun contest and we have a lot of basketball fans in this area,” said Record Publisher Robb Reeves. “Winners must spend the bucks at Hesston stores so we are keeping things local.”
The Record’s football contest in the fall, Pigskin Picks, had strong participation and ended in a tie this year. An extra week of games was played to break the tie.
“Pigskin Picks had a great finish and I hope we end up with an exciting finish for Hoops,” Reeves said.
