The Fine Print

All Jett Family friends, relatives and co-workers and their friends and relatives are invited to play!

Multiple entries from one player are accepted (within reason), but players should use their real name. Players submitting multiple entries should use a number in the Player Name to denote a separate entry (example: Smith, John 2). Note: If an identical Player Name is used for multiple brackets, the last bracket entry submitted will be used. (This rule allows players to change or correct their picks prior to the entry deadline.)

Only legitimate player names are eligible to win the JettNet.ORG Tournament. Pseudonyms and false names may be accepted by the JettNet.ORG Tournament Directors to participate in the tournament, but will not be eligible to win the esteemed JettNet.ORG Tournament.

Players submitting brackets with invalid email addresses will be disqualified.
