On Friday, March 16th the team at AOG Wealth Management hosted our 6th Annual March Madness Open House for AOG clients and friends.
The three large TV screens at the AOG offices in Great Falls played the big games and guests sported their favorite college team attire. Always a fun event, guests dined on barbecue from local favorite Mookie’s BBQ, along with other delicious tailgating munchies.
Along with the Annual Open House, we invite clients, friends, and family members to join our NCAA March Madness bracket challenge. Hours of intense research went into some brackets. Other brackets were made formed based on favorite school mascots or colors. And some brackets were simply put together using auto-draft. All brackets were busted early and the sobbing by UVA fans was loud. We had six brackets choosing Villanova to win the championship, but there was one person who made more correct picks (43) than anyone. Congratulations to rookie Erin Long, winner of the 2018 AOG March Madness Bracket Challenge!
Erin, a member of the AOG Wealth Management Client Service team, described her strategy as multifaceted. She stated, “I chose winners based on rank and picked a few small upsets whenever I felt like it. I think the fact that I forgot to do my bracket until five minutes before the deadline forced me not to overthink my picks which obviously worked in my favor.” To our contestants who spent hours on their brackets, sacrificing work or school… take heart. There is always next year.
