Remember the days of the "Ultimate Fan" contests? Well, unless you are the proud owner of those words (yes, someone actually trademarked "Ultimate Fan") the contest is now called something else. Two years ago our "Ultimate Fan" contest underwent a social media makeover and was renamed the Tweetest Fan. The contest continues to grow in popularity and is scheduled to kick off again with the start of the 2011-12 men's and women's basketball season. Once again, C-USA will seek out more of its Tweetest Fans, using various social media to spread all the exciting news coming from the Conference and its members. If you are reading this blog, then you are the perfect candidate to participate and possibly be this year's big winner!
Prizes will be awarded throughout the basketball season, as fans will receive clues on Twitter (@ConferenceUSA1) and Facebook (Conference USA). Clues will range from answering trivia questions, posting photos and meeting up with conference personnel at remote locations for various prizes and select regular-season game tickets. By simply participating, fans will automatically be registered to win the grand prize - a trip for two to the 2012 Conference USA Basketball Championships, March 7-10 in Memphis, TN. Multiple entries will be accepted increasing your chance to win the grand prize package, which includes tickets, air fare and hotel accommodations. The winner will be selected through a blind draw on Monday, February 27.
Beale Street, Barbecue and Basketball - what more can you ask for in March? So be sure to follow us on Twitter and Like us on Facebook so you don't miss a chance to win!
