If a dispute as to the identity of any entrant cannot be resolved to Administrator’s satisfaction, the entry will be deemed ineligible. The Contest Entities assume no responsibility or liability for any error, omission, interruption, deletion, theft or destruction, or unauthorized access to, or alteration of entries. Mechanically reproduced, illegible, incomplete, forged, software-generated or other automated multiple entries or the use of any device to automate the entry process is prohibited.

- RANDOM SELECTION AND WINNER NOTIFICATION: One (1) prize winner shall be selected each month during the Sweepstakes Period, for a total of six (6) prize winners. At the end of each month, the Administrator will randomly select one (1) potential winner from all eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period
(“Random Drawing”). The winner is considered a potential winner pending verification of his/her eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules. The potential winners will be notified by e-mail or direct message from Twitter, using the information given at the time of entry. Administrator shall have no liability for any winner notification that is lost, intercepted or not received by a potential winner for any reason. If, despite reasonable efforts, the potential winner does not respond within two (2) days of the first notification attempt, or if the prize or prize notification is returned as unclaimed or undeliverable to such potential winner, such potential winner will forfeit his or her prize and an alternate winner may be selected. If any potential winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules or declines a prize for any reason prior to award, such potential winner will be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected. Administrator will successively attempt to contact up to two (2) potential winners of the prize in accordance with such procedure, and if there is still no confirmed winner of the prize in question after such attempts have been made, the prizes may go unawarded.
- PRIZE, APPROXIMATE RETAIL VALUE AND ODDS OF WINNING:
- Prizes (1): Each winner will receive (1) beer cooler. Six (6) Prizes will be available in the Sweepstakes.
- Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”): The ARV of each Prize is $500.
- Odds of Winning: The odds of winning the Prize depend on the total number of eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period. No Prize substitution or exchange will be allowed, except by Administrator, who reserves the right to substitute a prize of equal or greater value in case of unavailability of a Prize or force majeure.
- HOW TO CLAIM THE PRIZE: The potential winner is subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules. The potential winner will be notified by email or direct message via Twitter and will be required to sign and return an Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability/Publicity Release (except where prohibited) and any other requested documents within five (5) calendar days from the date of attempted notification or the Prize may be forfeited in its entirety and awarded to an alternate winner, at the Administrator’s sole and absolute discretion. Failure to provide all required information and a signature on the documents within the stated time period may result in forfeiture of winner’s right to claim the Prize, and may result in the Prize being awarded to an alternate winner, if time permits. The potential winner may be subject to a background check before the prize is awarded. Administrator reserves the right to disqualify the potential winner based on the results of such background check if Administrator determines in its sole discretion that awarding the Prize to any such individual might reflect negatively on the Administrator. The Sweepstakes Entities shall not be held responsible for any delays in awarding a Prize for any reason. Upon verification of eligibility, the Prize will be hand delivered to the winner on a date and at a location agreed upon by Administrator and winner. If the potential winner is found to be ineligible, is not in compliance with these Official Rules, declines to accept the Prize, or any winner notification is returned as undeliverable or the potential winner fails to respond to a winner notification within the timeframe specified in such winner notification, the Prize may be forfeited. If the Prize is forfeited for any reason, it may be awarded to an alternate potential winner, at the Administrator’s sole and absolute discretion, selected at random from the remaining pool of eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period, time permitting. If after a good-faith attempt the Administrator is unable to award or deliver a Prize, the Prize may not be re-awarded. Prize is not transferable and includes only the items specifically listed as part of the Prize. Any portion of the Prize not accepted by winner will be forfeited. The winner shall be solely responsible for payment of any and all applicable federal, state, and local taxes for any Prize won. Administrator will issue an IRS Form 1099-MISC to the winner. Approximate retail value is as of the time these Official Rules were printed and the value of the Prize may fluctuate. A winner is not entitled to any difference between the ARV and the actual value of the prize at the time the prize is awarded. All other costs and expenses not expressly set forth herein shall be solely the winner’s responsibility. The Prize will only be awarded to a verified winner.

Inclusion in such drawing shall be each entrant’s sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances. Only the type and quantity of prizes described in these Official Rules will be awarded.

Inclusion in such drawing shall be each entrant’s sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances. These Official Rules cannot be modified or amended in any way except in a written document issued in accordance with law by a duly authorized representative of Administrator. The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these rules shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision. In the event that any provision is determined to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable or illegal, these rules shall otherwise remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with their terms as if the invalid or illegal provision were not contained herein. The Contest is void where prohibited by law. The Contest is governed by the laws of the State of Washington and is subject to all applicable federal, state, and local law regulations.
