To maintain eligibility, Member’s 9Round membership must be active and fully paid up at all times during the Contest up to and through, if applicable, winner verification and prize award. Employees, officers, and directors of Sponsor or its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, representatives, consultants, contractors, legal counsel, advertising, public relations, promotional, fulfillment, and marketing agencies, website providers, web masters, (collectively, the “Contest Entities”) and members of their immediate families (spouses, parents, siblings and children, regardless of where they live), and those living in the same household are not eligible to enter or win. Sponsor reserves the right to verify the eligibility of winners. Participation constitutes Entrant’s full and unconditional agreement to these Official Rules and to Sponsor’s decisions, which are final and binding in all matters related to the Contest.
The 2019 CHOW Games will have two different contest components: (1) the Daily Contests, and (2) the 5-Day CHOW Challenge.
- Daily Contests – Each day during the Contest Period, report your daily CHOW score to Sponsor to be recorded on Sponsor’s CHOW whiteboard in the club. The Entrant(s) with the highest daily CHOW score will be considered the potential winner(s) of the CHOW Games Daily Contest that day. Limit one (1) entry per Member per day.
- 5-Day CHOW Challenge - Before or during the Contest Period, obtain the 2019 CHOW Games scorecard (“Scorecard”) from Sponsor, which will be available to Entrants at the front desk at the Sponsor location. During the Contest Period, check-in at the Sponsor location, track your daily CHOW scores on the Scorecard, and submit your completed Scorecard to Sponsor on the last day of the Contest Period. Each Entrant who completes all five (5) CHOW Games workouts and submits a completed Scorecard to Sponsor will be considered a potential 5-Day CHOW Games Challenge winner. Limit one (1) entry per Member.
Any attempt by any Entrant to obtain more than the permitted number of entries by using multiple and/or different identities, forms, registrations, addresses or any other method will void all of that Entrant’s entries and that Entrant may be disqualified at Sponsor’s discretion. Normal Internet, phone and usage charges imposed by your online or phone service may apply. Incomplete, illegible, corrupted, or untimely entries are void and will be disqualified. Sponsor and its agencies are not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, damaged, stolen, misdirected, or illegible entries; lost, interrupted, or unavailable network, server, or other connections; or miscommunications, computer or software malfunctions, telephone transmission problems, technical failures, garbled transmissions, damage to a user’s computer equipment (software or hardware), or other errors or malfunctions of any kind, whether human, mechanical, electronic or otherwise. Proof of sending or submission will not be deemed to be proof of receipt by Sponsor. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of an entrant, the authorized account holder of the email address used to enter will be deemed to be the entrant or participant. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider, Internet service provider, or other organization (which may include an employer) responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. Potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder. Entries specifying an invalid, non-working, or inactive email address will be disqualified and ineligible to win.
- SELECTION OF WINNER(S):
- Daily Contest - At the close of business each day during the Contest Period, Sponsor will determine the Entrant with the highest CHOW score that day based on reported CHOW scores. The Entrant with the highest CHOW score will be selected as the potential winner(s) of that day’s Daily Contest. In the event of a tie, all Entrants with the highest CHOW score will be deemed potential winners of that day’s Daily Contest. Each day’s Daily Contest potential winner(s) will be announced on or about the following calendar day via email as well as being posted at or near the Sponsor’s CHOW whiteboard. Winning a prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein. If a potential winner does not respond within seventy-two (72) hours after the first attempt to notify him/her that he/she has been selected to receive a prize, that potential winner will be deemed to have forfeited the prize, and the Entrant with the next highest CHOW score will be selected as an alternate potential winner in his/her place. If a potential winner cannot be contacted by email, or if he/she fails to respond to the potential winner notification within seventy-two (72) hours, or sign and return any documentation that Sponsor may require within any time period that Sponsor may specify or in the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will select the entrant with the next highest CHOW score as the alternate potential winner. Any alternate potential winner will also have seventy-two (72) hours to claim the prize, and must satisfy all eligibility requirements. Time permitting, Sponsor will make two (2) attempts to select alternate winners, after which any remaining prizes will remain un-awarded.
- 5-Day CHOW Challenge – At the end of the Contest Period, Sponsor will review all Scorecards submitted to Sponsor before the close of the Contest Period. Each Entrant who checks in at the Sponsor’s location each day during the Contest Period, completes all five (5) CHOW Games workouts and submits a completed Scorecard to Sponsor will be considered a potential 5-Day CHOW Games Challenge winner. All 5-Day CHOW Games Challenge potential winner(s) will be announced on or about the calendar day following the close of the Contest Period via email as well as being posted at or near the Sponsor’s CHOW whiteboard. Winning a prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein.
