11th Annual Hoops Pool

11th Annual Worldwide Hoops Pool

blog_2014hoopsWe recently completed the 11th Annual Worldwide Hoops Pool for the 2014 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament and it was our largest group ever.  Each year Worldwide Ticketcraft’s staff, clients, friends, and family join together to enter March Madness brackets on CBSsports.com.  We had a record number of 104 brackets this year and for the first time ever – nobody picked the correct championship team.  Congratulations to the University of Connecticut Huskies on their dramatic run through the tournament to win it all.  To our honored list of past results, we add Chris Hauck as our 2014 Champion (who had the high score of 98 points and the most games selected correctly of 44 out of 63).  Our second place finisher was Robert Provettell with 83 points and third place goes to Todd Fulk with 82 points.  From the staff at Worldwide Ticketcraft, the top spot was claimed by Jason Cantone (who finished 5th overall with 77 points).

This year we added a Facebook page for the pool.  All the past results have been posted along with a few items just for fun.  Please visit the page and “like” it to keep in touch as we prepare for next year’s Hoops Pool.  We look forward to 2015 and hope all the participants will join again and bring all your friends that love basketball.  For more information, please contact Mark Turner.

Tickets as Invitations


Need a slightly new twist on your event invitations? Well, you can create your own large commemorative styled tickets for your next birthday, rehearsal dinner, Superbowl party or Sweet 16. Remember how special it was to hold those precious tickets in your hand before a concert or a basketball game? Give your guests a memento to your special occasion. These over-sized ticket styled invitations include a barcode and “ADMIT ONE” in the design, but best of all, you get to design them yourself, online. Upload images of your loved one or a company logo. Set the text, size, color and even include directions and a map on the back of the ticket to your event.

Want to run a raffle? Add the number 0001 to any line in the body and to the one line in the stub and we will make sure that you get sequential numbering on that line. These invitation styled tickets are offered in much lower quantities so you can order as few as 24 and as many as you like. You can even order the envelopes right along side them. Click the image and give our ordering process a try. As always, we would love your feedback.
