Sweepstakes open to US citizens who are 21+ years of age before 08/19/18 to be eligible to win. Must produce sufficient government-issued photo identification to claim winnings. Sweepstakes open from 12:00:00 on 08/19/18 to 11:59:59 on 12/08/18, but sweepstakes automatically includes current subscribers prior to this timeframe. Odds of winning were approximately 1 in 510 at time of sweepstakes launch, and odds decrease with new subscribers inherent with the sweepstakes format, and are ultimately based on the number of entries received. Since this is an e-mail newsletter growth sweepstakes, and since we are only requiring e-mail to enter, and since the objective of this sweepstakes is to reward subscribers and readers of our newsletter, winners will only be contacted via e-mail no less than 3 times to attempt to reach the winners. Essentially we are rewarding subscribers who read e-mails from us. WINNINGS MUST BE CLAIMED WITHIN 30 DAYS OF BEING NOTIFIED VIA E-MAIL.

Drawing of winners will be held within 72 hours of sweepstakes conclusion and witnessed / conducted by: Chamber staff, representatives from the Chamber Board, and other neutral / non-eligible parties.

Winners will be chosen via random number generation corresponding to a numbered list of our eligible subscribers. Winners will be notified via e-mail no less than (3) times within the 30-day timeframe during which winnings can be claimed. If these e-mails are not responded to, it is assumed the winner has either: not added email@example.com to their safe subscribers list, does not read our e-mails, or is otherwise uninterested in monitoring their inbox and junk mail folders after the conclusion of the sweepstakes in pursuit of any potential winnings. For these or any other reasons of failure to respond to any of these (3) e-mail attempts to reach the winner(s), winnings are forfeited exactly 30 days after first attempt, and a new winner will be selected. Winner MUST reply directly from the original e-mail address in which winnings notification is addressed — that e-mail account and owner of that e-mail account is the winner of the giveaway. Proof of ownership of the winning account must be demonstrated by replying directly from that account to acknowledge winning of giveaway and make arrangements for processing transfer of package winnings. If you or someone you share an e-mail account with registers your shared e-mail as an entrant to this giveaway, or is already registered as an entrant to the giveaway (all previous subscribers are registered by default), it is the burden of entrant to work out sharing of winnings or determine who is entitled prize winnings if awarded to a shared e-mail address. All the Chamber will require to claim prize is: demonstration of ownership of the account (by anyone with access) and production of sufficient identification to claim.
