Box 8668, Gray TN 37615.

The Station will conduct the WQUT “The Groovy Smoothie Classic Rock Lunch” Contest (the “Contest”) substantially as described in these rules, and by participating, each participant agrees as follows:

 

  1. No purchase is necessary to enter or win. A purchase will not increase your chance of winning.   Void where prohibited.  All federal, state, and local regulations apply.

Eligibility.  This Contest is open only to legal U.S. residents, excluding Florida and New York residents, age eighteen (18) years or older at the time of entry with a valid Social Security number and who reside in the Station’s Designated Market Area (“DMA”) as defined by Nielsen Audio, who have not won a prize from the Station in the last thirty (30) days or a prize valued at $500 or more in the last six (6) months and whose immediate family members or household members have not won a prize from the Station in the last thirty (30) days or a prize valued at $500 or more in the six (6) months. Void where prohibited by law.  Employees of Cumulus Radio LLC, its parent company, affiliates, related entities and subsidiaries, promotional sponsors, prize providers, advertising agencies, other radio stations serving the Station’s DMA, and the immediate family members and household members of all such employees are not eligible to participate. The term “immediate family members” includes spouses, parents and step-parents, siblings and step-siblings, and children and stepchildren.  The term “household members” refers to people who share the same residence at least three (3) months out of the year. 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.

  1. Contest Period. The Contest entry period will begin at 12:01 p.m. ET on November 29, 2021 and will run weekdays from 12:01 p.m. ET through 12:59 p.m. ET through 12:59 p.m. ET on December 3, 2021 (the “Contest Period”).  The Station’s computer is the official time keeping device for this Contest.

  2. How to Enter/Win.  

 On-Air:  Listen to the Station weekdays from 12:01 p.m. ET to 12:59 p.m. ET during the Contest Period.  When the Station announces the “cue-to-call,” listeners should call the Station at 423.477.1015. Caller ten (10) to the Station, as determined by the Station in its sole discretion, will be a potential winner of the Daily Prize (as defined below).  Time Delay Between Over-the-Air Analog Signal and Internet Broadcast: Due to the time delay that exists between the Station’s analog over-the-air signal and the Station’s online webcast, listeners who listen to the Station online may hear the cue to call later than listeners listening to the Station’s analog over-the-air signal. As a result, the odds of an online listener entering and/or winning this Contest on-air may be diminished.

  1. Winner Selection. Each weekday during the Contest Period, Station will announce one (1) “cue-to-call” between 12:01 p.m. ET and 12:59 p.m. ET.  Caller ten (10) as announced by the Station will win a Daily Prize subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with the terms of these rules. Winners will be notified at the time of the call. Station’s decisions as to the administration and operation of the Contest and the selection of the Prize winners are final and binding in all matters related to the Contest. Winners will be notified at the time of the call and/or contacted using the phone number provided to Station. Station’s decisions as to the administration and operation of the Contest and the selection of the Prize winners are final and binding in all matters related to the Contest. Winners will be mailed a liability/publicity release form to mail back to Station to redeem their Prize. Failure to claim the Daily Prize within fourteen (14) days of winning will result in disqualification and forfeiture of the Daily Prize.

  2. 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 will be required to sign an affidavit of eligibility and a liability/publicity release (except where prohibited) in order to claim his/her prize, if applicable. A winner who signs the affidavit of eligibility and the 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 the affidavit of eligibility and the liability/publicity release within the required time period (if applicable), or the prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, the 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.    

  3. Daily Prizes. Up to five (5) Daily Prizes will be awarded in this Contest. Each Daily Prize consists of one (1) gift certificate redeemable at The Groovy Smoothie (202 Union Street, Erwin, TN 37650).

  4. General Conditions. Station reserves the right to cancel, suspend and/or modify the Contest, or any part of it, if any fraud, technical failures or any other factor beyond Station’s reasonable control impairs the integrity or proper functioning of the Contest, as determined by Station in its sole discretion. Station reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Contest or to be acting in violation of these Official Rules or acting in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner. Any attempt by any person to deliberately undermine the legitimate operation of the Contest may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, Station reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Station’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.

  5. Limitations of Liability. The Released Parties are not responsible for: (1) any incorrect or inaccurate information, whether caused by Station, entrants, printing errors or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Contest; (2) technical failures of any kind, including but not limited to malfunctions, interruptions, or disconnections in phone lines or network hardware or software; (3) unauthorized human intervention in any part of the entry process or the Contest; (4) technical or human error which may occur in the administration of the Contest or the processing of entries; or (5) any injury or damage to persons or property which may be caused, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, from entrant’s participation in the Contest or receipt or use, non-use or misuse of any prize.

Box 8668, Gray TN 37615.

The Station will conduct the WQUT “Red Meze Downtown Classic Rock Lunch” Contest (the “Contest”) substantially as described in these rules, and by participating, each participant agrees as follows:

  1. No purchase is necessary to enter or win. A purchase will not increase your chance of winning.   Void where prohibited.  All federal, state, and local regulations apply.

Eligibility.  This Contest is open only to legal U.S. residents, excluding Florida and New York residents, age eighteen (18) years or older at the time of entry with a valid Social Security number and who reside in the Station’s Designated Market Area (“DMA”) as defined by Nielsen Audio, who have not won a prize from the Station in the last thirty (30) days or a prize valued at $500 or more in the last six (6) months and whose immediate family members or household members have not won a prize from the Station in the last thirty (30) days or a prize valued at $500 or more in the six (6) months. Void where prohibited by law.  Employees of Cumulus Radio LLC, its parent company, affiliates, related entities and subsidiaries, promotional sponsors, prize providers, advertising agencies, other radio stations serving the Station’s DMA, and the immediate family members and household members of all such employees are not eligible to participate. The term “immediate family members” includes spouses, parents and step-parents, siblings and step-siblings, and children and stepchildren.  The term “household members” refers to people who share the same residence at least three (3) months out of the year. 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.

  1. Contest Period. The Contest will begin at 12:01 p.m. ET on September 6, 2021, and will run through 12:59 p.m. ET on September 10, 2021 (the “Contest Period”).  The Station’s computer is the official time keeping device for this Contest.
  2. How to Enter/Win.  

 On-Air:  Listen to the Station weekdays from 12:01 p.m. ET to 12:59 p.m. ET during the Contest Period.  When the Station announces the “cue-to-call,” listeners should call the Station at 423.477.1015. Caller ten (10) to the Station, as determined by the Station in its sole discretion, will be a potential winner of the Daily Prize (as defined below).  Time Delay Between Over-the-Air Analog Signal and Internet Broadcast: Due to the time delay that exists between the Station’s analog over-the-air signal and the Station’s online webcast, listeners who listen to the Station online may hear the cue to call later than listeners listening to the Station’s analog over-the-air signal. As a result, the odds of an online listener entering and/or winning this Contest on-air may be diminished.

  1. Winner Selection. Each weekday during the Contest Period, Station will announce one (1) “cue-to-call” between 12:01 p.m. ET and 12:59 p.m. ET.  Caller ten (10) as announced by the Station will win a Daily Prize subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with the terms of these rules. Winners will be notified at the time of the call. Station’s decisions as to the administration and operation of the Contest and the selection of the Prize winners are final and binding in all matters related to the Contest. Winners will be notified at the time of the call and/or contacted using the phone number provided to Station. Station’s decisions as to the administration and operation of the Contest and the selection of the Prize winners are final and binding in all matters related to the Contest. Winners will be mailed a liability/publicity release form to mail back to Station to redeem their Prize. Failure to claim the Daily Prize within fourteen (14) days of winning will result in disqualification and forfeiture of the Daily Prize.
  2. 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 will be required to sign an affidavit of eligibility and a liability/publicity release (except where prohibited) in order to claim his/her prize, if applicable. A winner who signs the affidavit of eligibility and the 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 the affidavit of eligibility and the liability/publicity release within the required time period (if applicable), or the prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, the 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.    
  3. Daily Prizes. Up to five (5) Daily Prizes will be awarded in this Contest. Each Daily Prize consists of one (1) gift certificate to Red Meze Downtown  (109 Buffalo Street,  Johnson City, TN 37604).
