SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION OF THE PRIZE WINNER: The Sweepstakes Administrator will conduct a random drawing on or about July 26, 2016, from among all eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period to select one Prize winner. Odds of winning the Prize depend on the number of eligible entries received during the applicable Entry Period. The potential Grand Prize winner will be notified via comment in the SeaPort Facebook post where the winner originally entered the contest, at Sweepstakes Administrator’s sole discretion. If the Sweepstakes Administrator attempts to contact the potential Prize winner via Facebook and cannot engage in a conversation with the potential Grand Prize winner within seven (7) business days from the first notification attempt, then such person may be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected via a random drawing, if time permits. The Sweepstakes Administrator may require winner to provide e-mail or phone number to confirm prize winning and necessary travel arrangements. If the Sweepstakes Administrator attempts to contact the potential Prize winner regarding travel arrangements within (7) business days after first contact, and the Prize winner does not respond during that period, an alternate potential winner may be selected via a random drawing, if time permits. All notification requirements, as well as other requirements within these Official Rules, will be enforced.

Exact travel dates and times for travel package use are to be determined based on availability and at the discretion of the Sweepstakes Sponsor/Administrator. Estimated value of the prize is $500.00, but may change based on fluctuations in air fare, market conditions, or other conditions. If the prize winner cannot utilize the prize for the travel and event dates offered by the SeaPort Airlines, the prize winner may be asked to forfeit their prize and a new winner maybe selected if time allows. Typical carrier travel rules, restrictions, regulations, policies and requirements apply for the air travel included in the prize package.
