The Contest is sponsored by Sponsor located at PO Box 68, Parshall, ND 58770-0068, and utilizes a website and related electronic tools (“the Site” or “Contest Site”) developed and/or managed by Pivot Group, LLC (“Pivot Group,” “Site,” or “Administrator”). This Contest is subject to the laws of the State of Oregon and the United States. In this document, Sponsor is referred to as “Sponsor,” “we,” “us” or “our”.

2) To Enter: Visit the Contest Site (http://rtc.pickitchallenge.com/Bowls/rtcbc1718/), by clicking on a link provided by Sponsor, following a link from the Sponsor website (http://rtc.coop/) or other related site(s) provided by Sponsor. Alternative links and URLs may be provided. Make your selections on the Contest Site according to the provided instructions at any time prior to the close date. You (“Participant”) will be asked to provide your name, email address, and possibly your address or other information to create and validate an entry (“Submission”). By submitting you are automatically entered into the Contest. By submitting you are acknowledging your acceptance of, and agreement to be bound by, these Contest Rules and the corresponding Privacy Policy. The Contest is open for entries November 24, 2017, until December 31, 2017. Entries become the property of the Sponsor and will not be returned. In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of the person submitting an electronic entry, the entry will be deemed to be submitted by the person in whose name the e-mail account is registered. Only one entry per person is allowed.

3) Eligibility: Any legal U.S. resident of Sponsor or invited participants, at least 18 years of age at time of entry with a valid email address can register and submit an entry into the Contest. Valid eligible entries must meet the following criteria:
a) Have a valid email address that is unique for the Participant. Only one entry is allowed per participant.
b) Be 18 or older at the time the competition starts.
c) Be a current U.S. resident.
d) Must be an active customer of the Sponsor company.

4) Scoring: The Contest website provides details on the scoring system that applies to this Contest. Contest participants will receive periodic updates via e-mail from the Site that provide Participant score, rank and information on the scores and ranks of other participants. Entrants agree to the release of their name, email address, and any other entered information by the Site for Contest implementation and administration only including but not limited to score updating, posting and winner notification purposes; otherwise, please review the Contest Privacy Policy and Sponsor’s privacy policy for more information on how we use any personal data we collect from you.

5) Tie-breakers will be decided as follows:
a) First tie-breaker = picking the designated tie-breaker game correct.
b) Second tie-breaker = closest to predicting the total number of points scored in the designated tie-breaker game.
c) Third tie-breaker = number of correct picks (wins). Since games can be worth different points, this tie-breaker excludes the points and just determines how many picks were correct.
d) Fourth tie-breaker = time of entry with the earliest entry winning over later entries.
Tie-breakers will be determined by Administrator.

6) Winner Notification: Winners will be notified by Sponsor or Pivot Group within a few weeks of the Contest. Potential prize winners will be notified by e-mail to the address provided during entry, possibly with follow-up documentation, which may include an affidavit of eligibility and liability/publicity release, sent by regular mail or e-mail. Potential winner response to their e-mail notifications must be received within 10 days of receipt, or be disqualified; the follow-up documentation must be returned in 7 days after winner response. If no response is received or if the completed documentation is not received within the above time periods, an alternate winner may be selected. If prize notification is not responded to or any prize is returned as undeliverable, prize will be forfeited and awarded to an alternate. Entering an incorrect or incomplete e-mail address in the registration process, or failing to meet the eligibility requirements above, will result in Contest disqualification. By accepting any prize, winner grants Sponsor the right to use his/her entry, name, likeness and biographical information in any and all media for advertising/promotional purposes.
