March Edness 2018: Winners Announced!
What a March Edness game it was this year! Two tie-breakers were needed to finalize our top three winners. At midnight we posted 5 photos and asked our top 4 players to identify the locations in each photo. The players in their respective tie-breaker who got the most photos correct win! If there ended up being the same number of correct photos, then the player who submitted their total guesses first would be the winner. Everyone had until 8:00 p.m. on Monday to submit their guesses.
Below are the answers:
Answer 1: The Alice F. Schott Continuing Education Center at 310 W. Padre Street.
Answer 2: This beautiful mural is hidden inside a construction zone at the corner of Mason and Chapala Street
Answer 3: This uniquely decorated home is located at 1814 Chino Street.
Answer 4: This funky mural is located on Pardall in Isla Vista on the side of Hana Kitchen, next to the Blenders in the Grass, at 6558 Pardall Road in Isla Vista.
Answer 5: These decorative artichokes are on top of the former Bell Street Farm building at 406 Bell Street in Los Alamos.
It was close in both races! All contestants submitted their guesses within 10 mins of 8:00 p.m. For the 1st place spot between Penelope805 and Camster the winner is.... Camster! Penelope805 turned in 0 correct responses while Camster turned in 1 correct response for the above photo hunts. Congratulations Camster on your 1st place win and Penelope805 on your 2nd place win!
