The Contest is subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations. Participation constitutes entrant’s full and unconditional agreement to these Official Rules and Station’s decisions, which are final and binding in all matters related to the Contest. Winning a prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein.  Only one (1) Qualifier per immediate family and/or household.  Once a person within a household and/or immediate family qualifies, all other immediate family members and/or household members are not eligible to participate in this Contest.  A person may qualify only one (1) time during this Contest.

  1. Contest Period. The Contest will begin at 9:00 a.m., ET on June 1, 2020 and will run through 5:00 p.m. ET on August 31, 2020 (the “Contest Period”), excluding July 3, 2020. The Station’s computer is the official time keeping device for this Contest.
  2. How to Enter. To enter:

On-AirListen to the Station weekdays at 9:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. each weekday and keep track of the items that we are taking on our Summer Rhode Trip during the Contest Period. The three (3) items must be correctly and fully entered in the “Ultimate Summer Rhode Trip” contest entry form located at www.literock105fm.com by 11:59 p.m. ET each weekday. The next weekday, at or around 8:20am, one (1) qualifier that has correctly identified all three (3) items broadcast the previous day online will be randomly chosen and announced on the air as an official qualifier.  Once a qualifier has been officially chosen, that qualifier is no longer eligible to enter for the duration of the contest period.

  1. Winner Selection. On-Location Grand Prize Event.  On or about 10:00 am ET on September 5th, 2020 Station will select one (1) entry for the Prize in a random drawing from among all valid Qualifiers who are properly checked-in by the deadline with the Station, presenting a current, valid government issued photo ID.  Qualifiers must be present at Flood Ford Lincoln of Narragansett at 10:00 a.m. on 9/5/20 in order to win.  All Qualifiers must bring a current, valid government issued photo ID and check-in with the Station no later than 10:00 a.m.  Failure to check-in by the deadline of 10:00 a.m. and/or failure to bring a current, valid government issued photo ID will lead to disqualification, and at that time the Qualifier will no longer be eligible to win the Grand Prize.  NO PROXIES WILL BE ALLOWED FOR ANY REASON, EXCEPT AS ALLOWED AND OUTLINED BELOW. Once checked-in the Qualifier must remain present throughout the duration of the Grand Prize event, and must present himself/herself within twenty (20) seconds of his/her name being called. YOU MUST BE PRESENT TO WIN THE GRAND PRIZE.

Alternate Grand Prize Event.  Should the Station determine, in its sole and absolute discretion, that the Grand Prize Event on location at Flood Ford Lincoln of Narragansett is unsafe for any reason due to disease, epidemic, pandemic and/or otherwise not allowed due to a ruling of any governmental entity, then a “virtual” event will be held.  The decision related to whether a virtual event will be held will be made no later than August 28, 2020.  The Station will make up to two (2) attempts to contact all Qualifiers between the dates of August 28, 2020 and September 4, 2020 via phone call and/or email to alert them to the change and will also post a notification about the change on the Station’s website/social media platforms.  At that time, the Station will be on-site at the Flood Ford location, live on the WWLI Facebook page.  A winner will be randomly chosen from all Qualifiers live on Facebook and then announced.  Being present and/or viewing the Facebook Live/On-air announcement is not required in order to win the Grand Prize.

The winning entrant will be contacted in person and may be awarded the prize (subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with the terms of these rules). Station’s decisions as to the administration and operation of the Contest and the selection of the potential winner are final and binding in all matters related to the Contest. Failure to respond to the initial verification contact within three (3) days of notification will result in disqualification.

Proxy Needed Due to Physical Disability or Sickness. Should a Qualifier be physically unable to participate in the on-location Grand Prize Event due to illness related to Covid-19 or physical disability, as verified by a doctor’s note, then the Qualifier should (a) provide a doctor’s note to the Station no later than 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, September 3, 2020, and (b) alert the Station as to the full legal name of the person  who the Qualifier chose as his/her proxy on Saturday, September 5, 2020.  After the one (1) and only one (1) proxy’s name is given no other substitutions will be allowed for any reason.  The substituted Qualifier must meet the qualifications above by presenting a current, valid government issued photo ID and check-in with the station timely.  Should you not receive a confirmation from the Station that the note has been received, then it will be deemed not received for purposes of proxy substitution.  Alerting the Station as to the need for a proxy substitution due to physical disability and/or illness is the sole and exclusive responsibility of the Qualifier. 

  1. Verification of Potential Winner. THE ELIGIBILITY OF ALL POTENTIAL CONTEST WINNERS IS SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION BY STATION WHOSE DECISIONS ARE FINAL AND BINDING IN ALL MATTERS RELATED TO THE CONTEST. The potential winner must continue to comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules, and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements. The potential winner may be notified by email and/or telephone call after the date of random drawing and/or winner determination. The potential winner will be required to sign and return to Station, within three (3) days of the date notice is sent, an affidavit of eligibility and a liability/publicity release (except where prohibited) in order to claim his/her prize, if applicable.  A winner who returns the affidavit of eligibility and liability/publicity release will be deemed to have accepted the contest prize and thereafter will not be permitted to rescind their acceptance of the prize and/or return the prize. If a potential winner cannot be contacted, fails to sign and return the affidavit of eligibility and/or the liability/publicity release within the required time period (if applicable), or if the prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, potential winner forfeits prize. In the event that the potential winner of a prize is disqualified for any reason, Station may award the applicable prize to an alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries.    
  2. PRIZES. Prize.  One (1) Prize will be awarded in this Contest.  The Prize is a 2-year Lease on a 2020 Lincoln MKZ or $2,500 cash equivalent, but not both prizes. Winner is responsible for all taxes associated with prize receipt and/or use, title, receipt and registration. Winner agrees to submit and complete any and all necessary paperwork as required by Flood Ford Lincoln of Narragansett, including but not limited to providing necessary information in order for the Sponsor to run a credit check.  Should the Winner not meet the lease requirements as required and decided in the sole discretion of Flood Ford Lincoln of Narragansett’s sole discretion, then Winner will then receive a payment of $2,500.00.  ARV of Grand Prize: FIFTEEN THOUSAND DOLLARS ($15,000) for the Lease or Two Thousand Five Hundred Dollars ($2,500) for the payment, depending upon which Grand Prize is selected. Odds of winning the Grand Prize depend on a number of factors including the number of eligible entries received during the Contest Period and listeners participating at any given time; the final odds for winning the Grand Prize is 1:65, but might be better depending upon how many Qualifiers actually check-in on time with the required identification should the Grand Prize On-Location Event be the mechanism by which the Grand Prize is awarded.

There is no substitution, transfer, or cash equivalent for prizes, except that the Station may, at its sole discretion and to the extent permitted by law, substitute prizes of comparable value or cash.  The prizes are expressly limited to the item(s) listed above and do not include taxes, gratuities or any other expenses.  Any tickets and/or gift certificates/cards awarded as part of a prize will be subject to the terms and conditions set forth by the issuer and are valid only on the date(s) printed on the tickets or gift certificates/cards.  Other restrictions may apply.
