Contest Rules

All rules and restrictions are subject to final review by KNOB and may be modified or the contest terminated at any time at our discretion. The station, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to disqualify any person tampering with the entry process or is otherwise in violation of the rules. It further reserves the right to cancel, terminate or modify the contest if it is determined that it is not capable of completion as planned due to tampering, technical failures or any other cause.

Except as otherwise specified, KNOB contests are open to all persons 12 years of age and older. Contests that are restricted to persons 21 and over will be specified on-air or in official contest rules for that particular contest.

Employees of KNOB, its parent companies, and any of their agencies, affiliates and their families are not eligible to win.

Prizes are not transferable and may not be exchanged for other prizes or for cash, except in the sole discretion of the station. KNOB reserves the right at any time to award the prize to another eligible winner drawn at random in the event the prize, for any reason, cannot be utilized by the original Winner or in the event the original Winner does not meet eligibility requirements.

Prizes may not be sold to a third party.  Any person found selling a prize will not be eligible to win from Wine Country Radio in the future.

In the event that the winner of a trip with pre-determined dates cannot travel on the designated dates, an alternate will be chosen and no consolation prize awarded to the original winner.

Winners must provide their social security number for prizes valued over $600.00. Winners of prizes with a value in excess off $600.00 will receive a 1099 tax form in January of the following year, reflecting the value of the prize. Winners are solely responsible for all federal and state taxes which may be applicable.

Winning at any Wine Country Radio entity (KSXY, KRSH, KNOB, KXTS, KSXY-HD2) is allowed once per household per thirty (30) days for all regular contests where the prize is valued at less than $300.00, including on-air contests, social networking contests, website contests, fax in-to-win contests, e-mail contests, or direct mail. Winning at any Wine Country Radio entity is allowed once per household per sixty (60) days for all contests where the prize is valued between $300.00 and $599.00. Winning at any Wine Country Radio entity is allowed once per household per year (365 days) for contests with prizes valued over $600.00.  Households will not be eligible if they have previously won at a Wine Country Radio entity within the time and parameters listed above. The thirty (30) day rule does not apply for enter-to-win contests on-site at events.

Contests or sweepstakes where a prize is furnished by an outside company (ie. record label or advertiser) may be subject to additional rules.

Winners are given 2 weeks from the date they won to pick up their prize at KNOB (unless otherwise specified). Prizes not picked up within 2 weeks will be forfeited without notice and awarded to another contestant. The original winner will receive no consolation prize.

KNOB contests are open to all KNOB listeners unless specified in particular contest rules aired on KNOB or listed in official contest rules posted by KNOB for a specific contest.

All winners will be notified by KNOB and confirmed by mail. KNOB is not responsible for any mechanical telephone error, failure or omission; or lost or misdirected mail or faxes, or neglect on the part of the U.S. Postal Service, or e-mail service disruption.

Winners may be required to sign a release of liability in connection with the contest. By participating in KNOB contests, each contest participant agrees to release and waive any and all claims for damage for death, personal injury, loss of property or property damage that he or she may sustain as a result of his or her participation in the contest or the use of any prize and to release Wine Country Radio all contest sponsors and each of their respective directors, officers, employees and agents from any and all liability arising out of or connected in any way with his or her participation in the contest, even though that liability may arise out of negligence or carelessness on the part of the persons or entities mentioned above.

If, by reason of error, more prizes are claimed than the number set forth in these rules, all persons making purportedly valid claims will be included in a random drawing to award the advertised number of prizes. No more than the advertised number of prizes will be awarded.

All entrants agree to release the use of their name and city of residence as well as the broadcast transmission of information pertaining to their entry, or prize-winning conversations, without additional consideration. All entries mailed and/or submitted are and become the sole property of Wine Country Radio. Wine Country Radio retains the right to use art, images, likenesses and information obtained from contestants for broadcast and/or promotional purposes.

All decisions of station management with regard to the awarding of the prizes, the selection of the winners and the interpretation of these rules shall be final. Each contestant, by virtue of entering the contest, agrees to accept the decision of the station as final.
