- HOW TO ENTER
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY.
Each weekday during the Contest Period at 7:00 a.m., 9:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m., and 4:00 p.m. ET, a produced ‘cue-2-call’ will announce a Contest occasion (each, a “Contest Occasion”). Radio Station listeners are then invited to call 519-643-1039 (the “Contest Line”). A random numbered caller, as chosen by the on-air announcer, who gets through to the Contest Line will be offered the opportunity to be entered into either the Grand Prize draw (a “Qualifier”) OR accept a Secondary Prize (subject to these Contest Rules), as described below, in lieu of a Grand Prize draw entry. The on-air announcer may increase the dollar value of the Secondary Prize in increments to entice the caller to select this option. Once a caller accepts either option they are no longer eligible for any future Contest Occasions for the duration of the Contest.
Listeners may also visit Oxford Dodge, during normal business hours, located at 625 Oxford Street West, N6H 1T8, London Ontario during the contest period and fill out a ballot for the chance to qualify to win the truck. A total of one key for the grand prize draw will be award from the entries received at Oxford Dodge.
Streaming Listeners: Please note that you may be listening to a delayed stream of the radio signal which may vary depending on your computer’s memory capacity and the speed of your internet connection. For that reason, Contest Sponsors recommend that you turn on your radio to the Radio Station to participate in any call-in contest to be sure you are participating in “real time.” Contest Sponsors assume no responsibility for entrants not making timely phone calls to the station as a result of the delays in the Internet stream.
NOTE: Only one (1) entry per person is permitted during the Contest Period. Multiple entries will be discarded. Entries are subject to verification and will be declared invalid if they are reproduced, falsified, altered or tampered with in any way.
