4. In order to participate further in this Contest, Qualifiers must attend the Winemakers Evening at Protocol Restaurant located at 6766 Transit Rd, Williamsville, NY 14221 and check-in with Station representatives at the Star 102.5 table between 5:30pm and 6pm on March 19th, 2013 (the “Grand Prize Event”).  At check-in, Qualifiers must show a valid government issued photo identification to verify age and state of residency (as required by the contest rules applicable to this contest), and sign “as is” one or more liability release agreement which, among other things, relieves and releases the Station and their affiliated companies and others from any and all liability with respect to the contest and prizes.  Failure to sign the required liability release agreements “as is” will result in automatic disqualification and ineligibility to participate further in this contest.  Timely registered Qualifiers who provide all required information will be deemed “Registered Qualifier” and will be entitled to further participate in this contest.

5. Upon checking in, each Registered Qualifier will randomly be assigned a numbered CD out of the official container holding up to 50 CDs (up to 10 each from 5 different Live in the Vineyard artists).  The number on the CD will determine the Registered Qualifiers order in line, beginning with the lowest number selected and proceeding thereafter to the next highest number should Registered Qualifier become a Semi-Finalist.

6. The grand prize giveaway will begin at approximately 6pm. Registered Qualifiers will be seated at their Evening table.  Station host will announce contest beginning and play a song montage of 1 of the 5 Live In the Vineyard Artists.  The Registered Qualifiers who were assigned that artist will be deemed “Semi-Finalists” and move on to the next round.  Registered Qualifiers not assigned to that artist are eliminated from the contest.

7. Next the Semi-Finalists will line up according to their cd number, starting with the Semi-Finalist who has the lowest number cd.  One at a time, the Semi-Finalists will step forward and randomly choose one envelope containing a poster out of a bin.  The Station will have envelopes with posters that will equal in number the number of Semi-Finalists with the correct artist.  When Station host prompts, the Semi-Finalists will remove the posters from the envelopes.  Among all posters contained in the bin only five will be autographed.  The Semi-Finalists who find the autographs will be deemed Finalists and move on to the next round.  Semi-Finalists who do not find an autograph are eliminated from the contest. 

8. Next the five Finalists will either write down the number of the cell phone they currently posses or be provided a cell phone and number from the Station.  Once all five Finalist have a cell phone and the corresponding cell phone numbers are in container, Station host will randomly select one cell phone number out of container and hand number over to a Station representative.  Station Representative will take the selected phone number into a separate room and then call that one phone number.  When a Finalist answers, they will hear a station personality congratulating them on winning the Live in the Vineyard trip.  The Finalist who receives the phone call and congratulations message will be deemed Grand Prize Winner (subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these contest rules), and the contest shall be immediately over.
