The 2018 Chippens Tournament Challenge

The time has come again to MAKE YOUR PICKS in the Chippens Tournament Challenge (link will be active when bracket is posted Sunday evening). Deadline is 11:00 a.m. central on Thursday, March 15, 2018. One entry per person. 

The basic rules are the same, but the clever devils in the Chippens Development Team have added a couple wrinkles this year. 

Once again, ENTRY IS FREE and there are some wonderful prizes for the winners. As in past years, this year's Champion will receive a Grand Prize T-Shirt. Second place will receive a bumper sticker, and third place will get a fridge magnet. Scroll down to check out this year's Grand Prize, featuring some classic Power of Women iconography (Chippens keeps up with the zeitgeist).  

Now here's where things get interesting for 2018. The Chippens Development Team is pleased to announce this year's tournament is also serving as a fundraiser for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. 

Participants in this year's Challenge are encouraged, but not required, to donate to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital by clicking the link below. Suggested donation is $5, and you DO NOT need to donate in order to play or to be eligible for prizes. It is entirely up to you. 

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital has become an important part of the Chippens Family ever since September 21, 2017, when one of our own, two-year-old Charlotte "ChaCha" Corwin, was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. We here at the Chippens Family have been deeply affected by all the brave kids at St. Jude battling cancer, and we like to give our support to them and their families whenever we can.

In honor of ChaCha and all the brave kids of St. Jude, we are also adding a NEW PRIZE to this year's Challenge. Whoever gets 94th place, in honor of the 94% cure rate of ALL achieved at St. Jude (cure rate nationally is 90%), will get the Extra Special Hope T-Shirt below. If there are n0t 94 entrants this year, then the prize will go to a person TBD by an Extra Special Secret Method that cannot be disclosed at this time.  

Without further ado, here are the Grand Prize and the Extra Special Hope prize.
