Official Rules:

The Station will conduct the North Shore 104.9 “Win a Bermuda Cruise” Contest (the “Contest”) as described in these rules, and by participating, each participant agrees as follows:

No purchase is necessary. Void where prohibited.  All federal, state, and local regulations apply. In addition to these contest rules, the general radio station contest rules apply.

This Contest is open only to legal U.S. resident’s age twenty-one (21) years or older at the time of entry with a valid Social Security number and U.S Passport and who reside in the Station’s Designated Market Area (“DMA”). Void where prohibited by law.  Employees of WBOQ, affiliates, related entities and subsidiaries, promotional sponsors, prize providers, advertisers and advertising agencies, other radio stations serving the Station’s DMA, and the immediate family members and household members of all such employees are not eligible to participate. The term “immediate family members” includes spouses, parents and step-parents, siblings and step-siblings, and children and stepchildren.  The term “household members” refers to people who share the same residence at least three (3) months out of the year. The Contest is subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations. Participation constitutes entrant’s full and unconditional agreement to these Official Rules and Sponsor’s decisions, which are final and binding in all matters related to the Contest. Winning a prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein. Individuals are allowed to qualify only once for this contest and any duplicates will be eliminated before the Grand Prize drawing. One qualifier per household per 30 days, and the term “household” is described above.

Contest Period: The Contest will begin November 15, 2021 and will run approximately until December 21, 2021, or until the station has qualified 100 listeners. Qualifying hours, Monday through Friday 7a-5p with qualifying occurring at any time during these stated hours. Grand Prize drawing will be between 8am and 9am on December 22, 2021

How to Qualify:

On-Air:  Listen to the Station weekdays from 7:00am to 5:00pm during the Contest Period.  When the Station plays the “cue-to-call” sounder, entrants should call the Station at 800-370-1049.  Caller #9 to the Station, as determined by the Station in its sole discretion, will be qualified to win.  Due to the time delay that may exist between the Station’s analog over-the-air signal and the Station’s online or app webcast, listeners who listen to the Station in this manner may hear the cue to call later than listeners listening to the Station’s analog over-the-air signal. As a result, qualifying to win the cruise may be diminished.

Qualifier Selection:  Caller #9 to 800-370-1049 will qualify every time. The station isn’t responsible for dropped calls or other technical issues that may affect an entrant calling in to qualify for the cruise. Qualifiers will give their full name, address, email address, and confirm that they have a valid COVID-19 vaccination and a valid U.S. passport. If caller #9 doesn’t meet the requirements, the next caller will qualify to win.

Verification of Potential Winner: POTENTIAL CONTEST WINNER IS SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION BY STATION WHOSE DECISIONS ARE FINAL AND BINDING IN ALL MATTERS RELATED TO THE CONTEST. The potential winner must continue to comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rule’s, and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements. The potential winner will be notified by email and/or telephone call after the date of random drawing and/or winner determination. The potential winner will be required to contact the Station within three (3) business days in order to claim his/her prize. If a potential winner cannot be contacted or fails to contact the Station within the required time period, the potential winner forfeits qualifying for and/or winning the cruise. In the event that the potential winner of a prize is disqualified for any reason, Station may award the applicable prize to an alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries.  Winner traveling on the cruise must be age 21 or older, the Cruise can’t be transferred and there is no cash value.
