All Entries will become the sole property of Sponsor and cannot be returned.

WINNER SELECTION: On or around December 27, 2017, Sponsor will randomly select from all eligible Entries received during the Sweepstakes Period a "Sweepstakes Winner."  Any potential Sweepstakes Winner will be subject to verification by Sponsor of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules.  Any potential Sweepstakes Winner will be required to sign and return to the Sponsor an Affidavit of Eligibility and a Liability and Publicity Release (where permitted) ("Affidavit") after being notified that she/he is a potential Sweepstakes Winner.  The potential Sweepstakes Winner must sign and return the Affidavit within a timely manner, as stipulated by Sponsor.  The potential Sweepstakes Winner must also identify his or her intended guest, and that guest will be required to sign and return Affidavit.  An Entrant is not a winner of the prize until Entrant's eligibility as a Sweepstakes Winner has been verified, Entrant has been notified that verification is complete, and Entrant has complied with the terms and conditions of these Official Rules. 

AWARDING OF GRAND PRIZE:  A representative of Sponsor will notify the potential Sweepstakes Winner by email (the same email provided in his or her Entry).

Sponsor is not responsible for contacting an Entrant if that Entrant has changed contact information and failed to provide Sponsor with the proper contact information when such information is required.  At the sole discretion of the Sponsor, forfeiture of the Grand Prize and the selection of an alternate Sweepstakes Winner may result from any of the following: (a) a potential Sweepstakes Winner's failure to respond to notification within the specified response period; (b) a potential Sweepstakes Winner's failure to provide Sponsor with satisfactory proof of age, identity, and residence; or (c) any non-compliance with these Official Rules.

Canadian residents must also execute and return the Affidavit confirming compliance with these rules and releasing the Sponsor and its affiliated companies from any liability in connection with this Sweepstakes, all within the time specified on the Affidavit. Failure of a Canadian selected Entrant to correctly answer the skill-testing question in the time allotted or failure to execute and return the Affidavit will result in disqualification, the forfeiture of his or her interest in the Grand Prize, and the selection of a substitute Entrant from among all remaining eligible Entries and/or Finalists.
