Filling out your brackets for college basketball’s vast end-of-season tournament can be a job all on its own. Keeping up with every single game to see if your NCAA team goes all the way to the Final Four and beyond is even more time-consuming.

While you’re catching all these high-energy hoops, you may want to take a break from time to time. Hey, with games going for the next few weeks, it only makes sense to pace yourself by getting out into the real world at certain intervals.

No need to go cold turkey when it comes to the basketball court. And, honestly, isn’t the game more exciting when you’re right there on the sidelines?

The Yampa Valley Classic Youth Basketball Tournament will be in action Saturday and Sunday at multiple locations around town: Moffat County High School, 900 Finley Lane, Craig Middle School, 915 Yampa Ave., Sandrock Elementary, 201 E. 9th St., and Boys & Girls Club of Craig, 1324 E. Hwy 40

Registration is closed for the tourney, which is limited to sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade boys and girls.

For more information on the tournament, call Luke Tucker at 326-6335.

Saddle up for a good time!

The Maybell Women’s Club hosts the stage play “Sagebrush Sidekicks” at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday at Maybell Elementary School.

The Western tale of cowpoke Skipalong Rafferty and his search for a new subordinate is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face.

Admission is $5 at the door, and coffee and cookies will be available during admission of the hour-long show.

For more information, call 272-3238 or visit maybellwomensclub.com.

Get an early start on a big weekend.

The Chamber of Commerce’s latest After-Hours Mixer is set for 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday at the Hampton Inn & Suites, 377 Cedar Court. Brothers Custom Processing will also be hosting the free event, which always provides a good way for the members of the local business community to get to know each other.

Since this is a St. Patrick’s Day theme, remember to bring green apparel, lest you open yourself up to relentless pinching.

Those wanting to RSVP can call 824-5689 or email office@craig-chamber.com.

West Theatre hangs on to “Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax 3D” and “John Carter,” so you’ll either be watching a film about the not-too-distant, plant-free future or a man’s sojourn to another world.

Two of the bigger DVDs of the week are each set in polar opposites. Take your pick from the Hawaiian surroundings of “The Descendants” or the animated Antarctica of “Happy Feet Two.” Me, I’d go for the palm trees.

If the sequel about dancing penguins didn’t do it for you or your kids, head to Redbox for the superior cartoon “The Adventures of Tintin.” While you’re at it, pick up something meant for the older crowds, with a trio of femme-centric features out this week: Kirsten Dunst in the bizarre “Melancholia,” Charlize Theron in the snarky “Young Adult” or Michelle Williams in the glitzy biopic “My Week with Marilyn.”

As for the other threesome out this week, the steampunk version of “The Three Musketeers,” I have only one thing to say: One for all and all for one big waste of time.
