How to Enter

Starting February 26, 2014 through March 7, 2014, follow us on Twitter at @mystar1025 and we will tweet the ‘Live in the Vineyard Song of the Day’ between 6am and 7am each morning.  The tweet will contain the name of the song as well as the artist who sings it for that particular day. Each contesting day, that day’s tweeted song will be played up to six times per day between 6am and 6pm.  Immediately after that day’s song starts playing (must be a full song on Station, not a song clip or hook or portion of a song used in an intro, promotional announcement or advertisement that airs), the 11th caller at 716-644-1025 wins the qualifying prize described below and has a chance to participate in the Grand Prize Event, subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with the contest rules (“Qualifier”). Only calls received at the preceding phone number are eligible to participate in this contest. Only the song as performed by the specific artist named as the performer of the day’s tweeted song in this this contest will qualify as winning opportunities. Each contesting day, the tweeted song will play up to 6 times per day over a 10 day contesting period but in no event will there be more than a total of 40 Qualifiers.

How to Win

5. 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 6pm and 6:30pm on March 13, 2014 (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.

6. Upon checking in, each Registered Qualifier will be randomly assigned a colored and numbered bracelet.  The Grand Prize Event will begin at approximately 6:30pm. Each colored bracelet will correspond to one of four Station Representatives that will each be holding an empty wine bottle with colored ribbon on it. The ribbon colors will match the bracelet colors. Registered Qualifiers will line up next to the Station Representative holding the wine bottle with the ribbon color that matches their bracelet color. When Station host gives signals, Station Representatives will tip over and shake their empty wine bottles. One of those bottles will contain confetti.  The up to 10 Registered Qualifiers with the colored bracelet that corresponds to the color of the ribbon on the bottle containing the confetti will be deemed “Semi-Finalists” and move on to the next round. Registered Qualifiers wearing any other color wristband will be eliminated from the contest.

7. Next, the up to 10 Semi-Finalists will line up according to their wristband number, starting with the lowest number. One at a time, the Semi-Finalists will step forward and randomly choose one wine cork out of the official container holding up to 10 corks. The number of corks will equal in number the number of Semi-Finalists in this group. When Station host gives signal, Semi-Finalists will look at the bottom of their selected corks. The up to 5 Semi-Finalists who selected the corks with a specific Station-designated mark on the bottom will be deemed Finalists and move on to the next round. Semi-Finalists who did not select specifically marked corks are eliminated from the contest.

8. Next, the up to five Finalists will either write down the number of the cell phone they currently possess or be provided a cell phone and number from the Station. Once all five Finalists 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.

All Contest participants hereby agrees to strictly follow all instructions and directions given by Station personnel at the Grand Prize Event and understands that any intentional failure to comply with these Contest rules or procedures or instructions given by Station staff or any attempt to trade, purchase, or otherwise procure a wristband or cork other than that which each participant initially selected will result in immediate disqualification.
