It's time once again to play March Madness BINGO!
Each year during the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament, we enjoy a little contest of our own. All you have to do is strategically finish projects between March 13 and April 4 that satisfy requirements on our BINGO card. This year's Grand Prize has a retail value over $100, so it's GAME ON!
How to Play
Download the BINGO card (at this link), and then finish projects between March 13th and April 4th that satisfy squares on the card and form at least one BINGO (a set of five consecutive squares, running vertically, horizontally, or diagonally). If you plan strategically, you can satisfy multiple squares with a single project. And if you manage to form more than one BINGO, you'll have a better chance of winning the Grand Prize!
IMPORTANT: To qualify for prizes, projects must use yarn purchased at Northfield Yarn.
Projects can be current WIPs or be cast on during March Madness. Regardless, they must be completely finished by midnight April 4th to satisfy any squares. (Blocking doesn’t matter, but ends must be woven in.) Then put your entry together and be sure to submit it by 5:30pm Saturday, April 9th.
The Fabulous Prizes
Each person who completes at least one BINGO will receive a discount code plus one entry for the Grand Prize for each completed BINGO (up to a maximum of 12 entries for a fully completed card). We will also give a special prize to the contestant (or contestants) who satisfies the most squares with a single project.
The Grand Prize winner will be chosen at random from all of the timely and confirmed entries. This lucky winner will receive the prize pictured above (retail value of over $100). The bundle includes enough Blue Sky Fibers Brushed Suri and Indigodragonfly Kiwifloofen to make Andrea Mowry's Pink Velvet or Velvet Mirror Cowl -- or any number of other wonderful things!
Submitting Your Entry
You have three options for submitting your entry (i.e., your completed card and supporting list and photos):
- In our Ravelry group (recommended),
- By email, or
- In person at the shop
In any case, your entry must be submitted by 5:30pm on Saturday, April 9th.
Thanks for playing, and have fun!
