2020MARCHMADNESS

The March Madness tournament has been cancelled.
If you have already paid your pool fee, we will automatically
apply a credit to your account to be used towards a future pool.

We’ve been getting requests to replace our March Madness Bracket
format with a pop culture bracket contest (movies, songs, actors, etc).

If you are interested in this idea, or you have another, please email
us at info@illianathunderbolts.com and let us know to help make it happen.
