8. How to Play:
a. Beginning May 25, 2013 and ending on August 17, 2013, eligible entrants at each of the four participating grocery/retail stores to be determined by the Company may submit entries to the Sweepstakes to win the Grand Prize through a link on each of the Stations’ websites: 991thewhale.com and wild104fm.com and entering the valid “Bonus Code” associated with each participating grocery/retailer available at its “Most Refreshing Summer” display. No purchase will be necessary to participate in the Sweepstakes by entering the Bonus Code. A total of forty (40) persons – ten (10) persons from each of the four participating grocery/retailers providing correct online Bonus Codes will be selected at random as qualifiers who will be eligible to participate in a Sweepstakes for the Grand Prize at the final event, to be held on August 24, 2013 (the “Final Event”) (each person a “Qualifier”). The persons entering this “online” option who are chosen as Qualifiers will be notified via text, e-mail or standard mail regarding their selection as Qualifiers and the date, time and location of the Final Event. Such notification shall occur at least seven (7) days prior to the date of the Final Event. Online entries must be received by 11:59 pm on August 17, 2013.
b. Between May 25, 2013 and August 24, 2013, the Stations intend to hold approximately twenty (20) events where the Grand Prize will be on display. At each event, attendees will be invited to complete a registration card. A person may enter the Sweepstakes at each event location, but may not enter more than one (1) card at any single event. Any additional attempts to enter will automatically be void and any prize awarded to an ineligible contestant will be deemed null and void. At each of the twenty (20) events, ten (10) persons will be selected at random as Qualifiers who will be eligible to participate at the Final Event. Each Qualifier must be present on the day of entering the Sweepstakes. No substitutions will be permitted. All Qualifiers will be notified of their selection as a Qualifier, either on the day of the event, or via e-mail or standard mail by August 17, 2013.
c. On August 24, at the Final Event, one final person will be selected at random as a Qualifier. The Company expects a total of two hundred forty one (241) persons to be selected as Qualifiers.
d. At the Final Event location, the Qualifiers (not to exceed 241 persons) will be grouped in smaller groups, as evenly as possible. Eligible Qualifiers will be randomly selected, and will draw a key fab with a 3-digit number on the back. If that 3-digit number unlocks the “safe” the Qualifier becomes a Sweepstakes Semi-Finalist. There will be ten (10) Sweepstakes Semi-Finalists. Each Sweepstakes Semi-Finalist will select a key. If that key opens the lock and/or starts the ignition of the Grand Prize, that Sweepstakes Semi-Finalist will be selected as the Grand Prize Winner.
e. The locations of each event will be announced on the Stations each day during the course of the Sweepstakes. At least two unaffiliated retailers will be included in these announcements. The Stations will promote where the “next” location to enter will be. It is the interested parties’ responsibility to find their own transportation to events to enter. There may be only one (1) Qualifier per household and mailing address, per location.
f. Qualifiers must be present at the Final Event location on Saturday, August 24, 2013 to win, and must be checked in with Sweepstakes personnel by 5pm on that date to remain eligible.

12. Sweepstakes Disputes: The Company shall be the sole arbiter of the Sweepstakes and the interpreter of Sweepstakes rules. Its decisions shall be final. Entry into the Sweepstakes constitutes agreement by contestants to abide by these rules, as well as any other rules established by the Company and the Stations.
13. The Stations reserve the right to disqualify any winner if any Sweepstakes rules are violated in any way.

The Stations shall be entitled to rely in good faith, upon any documents presented by the representative seeking to collect the prize in lieu of the winner. The Stations shall not be liable for any claim by any winner for damages incidental thereto.
15. The Company reserves the right to make and change the Sweepstakes rules, including changing the Sweepstakes dates, but only to the extent permitted by the laws of the United States and the State of New York, including the rules and published policies of the Federal Communications Commission.
