So far, 2015 has been another record-shattering year for the WTBBC. We just wrapped up the February 2015 contest and you guys put up some serious numbers. Total team count was 380 and we paid out $75,205 in prize money to the Big Bobcat and Jackpot winners. We also gave away some very nice prizes donated by our sponsors. Be sure to check out their websites or establishments to show your appreciation to them for supporting this contest.
Online registration is now open for anyone wishing to enter the March contest using PayPal. Teams can still mail in their entry forms with their entry fee, but be sure they get to us BY THURSDAY before the contest. (Money Order or Cashiers Check ONLY. No personal checks, please.) If you mail your entry, please waive the signature requirement. It’s a HUGE hassle for Jeremy to run up to the post office every day to pick up entries. Also, please include a phone number on your entry form so we can call you to confirm receipt. Of course, you can also stop by Field and Streams in San Angelo, Texas any time between now and 12:00 PM on the Saturday of the contest to register in person. The entry fee is due when you turn in your entry form. There are NO REFUNDS.
Online registration will close at 12:00 AM, Monday, March 9th (that is Sunday night / Monday morning), to give us time before the contest to transfer the funds from the PayPal account. Please remind your friends to register. It never fails that we have 5 or 6 teams miss the online deadline and have to mail in their entries or try to make us jump through hoops to get their entries. We will post several reminders on Facebook and on here leading up to the deadline.
With the contest growing as large as it is, we simply cannot accommodate all of the requests to get teams registered at the last minute. We feel that we provide plenty of opportunities to enter the contest (Online, In Person, By Mail). The three of us all have jobs, and we try our best to help you guys out, but it is becoming increasingly more difficult to manage all of the last minute requests. Please do us a favor and enter early. If you aren’t quite sure who is going to be on your team, read on.
Remember, if you need to make changes to your team members after you’ve turned in your entry form, it MUST be done in writing so that we have a record of it. An email to firstname.lastname@example.org is the ONLY acceptable method to add/remove a team member. Submitting your team change using the Contact Us page is the same as an email. Your team change request must include all of your original team members’ full names and the name(s) of the person(s) you are adding/removing.
