2015 CAR BANQUET OFFICIAL RULES & REGULATIONS

The Indy Eagles Wrestling Room M&M Contest (“Banquet”) is a fundraising activity conducted by the Indy Eagles Wrestling Room in support of the Indy Eagles Wrestling Room building fund. These Official Rules & Regulations (“Rules”) govern the conduct of the Banquet and together with the decisions of the Indy Eagles Wrestling Room Board (“Board”) are binding on everyone who purchases a Banquet ticket and/or who is named on a Banquet ticket. These Rules may not be waived, modified or supplemented except by the Board in writing. These Rules apply to any and all individuals selling Banquet tickets and anyone on the official Banquet sub‐committee of the Indy Eagles Wrestling Room Board.

TICKET COST: The ticket price is $100.00 per ticket. Any requests or payments for tickets received following the sale cut off date of March 8, 2015 at 11:59 PM CST, will be returned to the sender. Donations will still be accepted after the ticket sale cut off date.

GRAND PRIZE CONTEST: Each $100.00 ticket to the Indy Eagles Wrestling Room Banquet will entitle the purchaser to one (1) entry in the Guess the Number of M&Ms contest. The purchaser with the closest guess to the actual number of M&Ms will win the 2015 Ford Escape. Closest guesses may be over or under the actual amount of M&Ms. The Grand Prize Winner will be announced at the Banquet, which will be held on Thursday March 12, 2015, at approximately 8:00 PM. This date and all other dates stated in these Rules may be extended at the absolute discretion of the Indy Eagles Wrestling Room Board.

M&M COUNT: A 5 Gallon Crystal water jug was filled by multiple individuals using plain, peanut and peanut butter M&Ms. The amount of M&M’s will remain unknown until Wednesday March 11, 2015. An independent group will be appointed and/or contracted to count the M&M’s. The results will be sealed until after the ticket sales close. Once ticket sales are closed, the Indy Eagle Wrestling Room board will identify the winner. If a tie occurs, the blue M&Ms guesses of the tied contestants will be reviewed. The tied contestant with the closest guess of blue M&Ms will be deemed the winner.

 

GRAND PRIZE: The Grand Prize is a 2015 Ford Escape

Winner of the car must take delivery within the State of Tennessee. Any expense for travel to Tennessee to accept delivery shall be the sole responsibility of the winner. The CAR will be transferred to the Grand Prize winner in "AS IS, WHERE IS" condition.
