SPONSOR: Rhinelander Chamber of Commerce. 1-800-236-4386, [email protected], http://www.rhinelanderchamber.com/. Hereafter “Sponsor”.

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. Open to legal residents of the United States who are 18 years of age or older as of date of entry. Void wherever prohibited by law. Employees of the Rhinelander Chamber of Commerce, its affiliates, subsidiaries, advertising and giveaway agencies, and the immediate family members and/or those living in the same household of each are not eligible. By participating, entrants agree to be bound by the Official Rules and the decisions of the Sponsor.

This giveaway is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Facebook. You are providing your information solely to Sponsor and its destination partners and not to Facebook. The information you provide will only be used to select winners for this giveaway and in the delivery of future promotional and travel-related communications from Sponsor or its destination partners. You may opt-out of that communication at any time.

CONTEST PERIOD: The Sweepstakes begins on March 14, 2012 @ 12:00PM (CT) and ends on June 1, 2012 @ 12:00PM (CT).

HOW TO ENTER: There are two ways to enter the contest. First, you may enter the giveaway by visiting http://explorerhinelander.com/gohodags/hodag-sightings-sweepstakes/enter. Follow the on-screen instructions by providing all of the required information. Second, you may visit the Rhinelander, Wisconsin Facebook Page (https://www.facebook.com/RhinelanderWisconsin), click on the “Hodag Sightings” tab and follow the on-screen instructions by providing all of the required information. Becoming a fan of Rhinelander, Wisconsin on Facebook is NOT a requirement to enter the giveaway. If you would prefer not to “like” Rhinelander, Wisconsin on Facebook (or if you are unable to do so), simply proceed to Step Two in the instructions. You may only enter the giveaway once: entering the giveaway multiple times will not increase your chances of winning.

Limit one entry per person/per e-mail address. No mechanically reproduced entries of any kind permitted. Incomplete entries are void. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, misdirected entries or entries not received. In the event of a dispute over who submitted an online entry, the entry will be deemed to have been submitted by the authorized account holder of the e-mail account identified on the online entry form. The authorized account holder is deemed to be the natural person who is assigned to an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, service provider, or online organization responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address.

RANDOM DRAWING: One grand prize winner will be selected by random drawing on or before June 15, 2012, from all eligible entries received. Decisions of Sponsor are final on all matters. Winner will be notified by e-mail only from [email protected] and have five business days to respond. If there is no response, an alternate potential grand prize winner will be selected and notified. Odds of winning will depend upon the number of eligible entries received.
