NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. Include your name, address, age, and daytime phone number on a 3x5 card or a plain piece of paper and mail your entry to: Binny's Beverage Depot Attendance Game, c/o WGN Radio, 435 N. Michigan Avenue, Chicago, IL 60611. Enter as often as you wish but only one entry per envelope. Entries will be accepted beginning Monday, March 30, 2009 through close of business Friday, September 25, 2009. Entries must be handwritten and may not be photocopied or mechanically reproduced. WGN Radio will not be responsible for entries lost, delayed, misdelivered, or damaged in the mail. This contest will only be played during the regular season and does not apply to any post-season play.
Prior to each Cubs radio broadcast, WGN Radio will randomly draw one entry from among all eligible entries and declare that entrant to be that day's contestant. The name of that day's contestant will be announced during the Cubs radio broadcast. During the broadcast, Pat Hughes and Ron Santo will co-estimate the game's official attendance before the actual attendance is announced. If Pat and Ron's guess is within 2,000 of the actual attendance, the contestant wins a pair of tickets to a designated Chicago Cubs upcoming home game, to be chosen by Sponsors. Daily winner will also qualify for the Grand Prize drawing held later in the season. If a substitute announcer fills in for either Pat or Ron, the substitute will play the game. Tickets won will be mailed to winner's mailing address provided in their contest entry.In the event of a game rainout or cancellation before the official attendance is announced, the contest will be played when the game is rescheduled and the contestant will follow to that game. In the event the game is not made up, the contest will not be played and that day's contestant automatically wins the tickets and is entered in the drawing. In the event that Pat and Ron forget to play or are unable to play the game on a given date, then that day's contestant automatically wins the tickets and is entered into the Grand Prize drawing. Winners during the last month of the promotion will receive tickets to a designated 2009 Cubs game.
Each attendance game winner will receive a pair of game tickets to a regular season home Chicago Cubs baseball game valued at $32. On or about Monday, October 5, 2009 (or whenever the regular season ends), the Grand Prize drawing will be held. One name will be selected at random from among all the qualifying daily game winners. Winner will be notified by phone and by mail. A notification letter will be sent to winner's mailing address. The Grand Prize is $10,000 in cash. Odds of winning a daily game prize depend on the number of entries received. Odds of winning the Grand Prize after qualifying as a daily game winner are 1 out of the number of qualifying daily game winners. MANY WILL ENTER; FEW WILL WIN.
Prizes will not be awarded, even if announced, if the contestant is not eligible in accordance with these rules. If you have won a prize of any value from WGN Radio within 60 days of the game in which you are selected, or if you have won a prize worth $600 or more from WGN Radio within two years of the date of the game in which you are selected, you are ineligible to play or receive a prize in this contest.
