Live Competition:  Contestants will be placed around a Zamboni inside Bridgestone Arena and will have to keep physical contact with the Zamboni (see page 2, paragraph 3) until contest ends.  In the event that more than one (1) finalist remains in contact with the Zamboni at the end of the Contest, a random drawing will be conducted by the Sponsor to determine a Contest winner. All decisions of the Sponsor in connection with the Contest are final.

The Sponsor is not responsible for website technical difficulties, telephone service outages, delays, busy signals and any other technological difficulties that may prevent an individual from completing his/her registration or participating in the Contest.

This Contest may involve “reward-challenges” as determined by the Sponsor and its Contest judges. These challenges may result in the elimination of one or more participating contestants.

Contestants must be at least 18 years of age by April 14, 2016 to participate. All contestants must be legal U.S. residents and must have a valid driver’s license. This screening will be done by the Sponsor before the contest begins on April 18th.  Persons selected as finalists (participating contestants) must be present at the Contest location at 8:00 am on Monday, April 18, 2016. Those who are not present forfeit any claim to participate or win and will be disqualified.

Finalists participating in this Contest will be positioned around the Zamboni, at random, at the judges’ determination.

The participating contestants must be continuously in physical contact with the Zamboni at all times (excluding sanctioned breaks) twenty-four (24) hours per day, for the duration of the Contest. All participating contestants will leave the Zamboni area during these breaks. If a participating contestant does not maintain continuous contact with the Zamboni, for any cause or reason whatsoever, including reward challenges, that participating contestant immediately will be disqualified. “Physical contact” for this promotion is defined as one hand has to be in touch with the Zamboni for the duration of time (breaks excluded).  Only during the break is a contestant allowed to switch the hand that is placed on the Zamboni.  Example, for period one, the right hand may be used, for period two, the left hand may be used.  If there is a health/ medical reason that a participant cannot use a hand for “Physical Contact”, the Sponsor may allow another agreed upon method of contact (ie foot, shoulder, etc.).

Each participating contestant will be responsible for acquiring his or her own food and beverages.  Sponsor will have bottles of water on site and snacks that contestants may elect to consume during breaks but is not responsible for adverse reactions by accepting such food/drink.  Each contestant may bring no other personal property to the Contest except the following:

One (1) blanket, one (1) change of clothes and one (1) set of toiletries if desired. Once the Contest has begun, no additional personal property will be permitted. Such personal property, at the option of the judges, may be stored in an unsecured area of premises, but neither Sponsor nor its affiliates shall be responsible for any such stored property.

The last participating contestant remaining in physical contact with the Zamboni will win. Should more than one eligible participating contestant remain in contact with the Zamboni at the end of the Contest on Tuesday, April 19, 2016 the winner will be determined by a random drawing conducted by the Sponsor. (This random drawing may be accomplished by a random draw of names).  The Sponsor may or may not elect to provide more than one prize at the end of the contest.  The contest may end without notice at the sole discretion of Sponsor.

A representative of Sponsor will determine the logistics of delivery of the Prize to the winner.

Sponsor reserves the right to reject any entry which it finds to be illegible, incomplete, or any contestant whom it finds to be ineligible to participate.

If any finalist is unable or unwilling to participate for any reason whatsoever, such finalist will be disqualified.
