I know I'm not the only one wonderin what they have to do to win. So here are some of the rules of the contest... ==================== The Onsite Contest will occur at the designated football game indicated in Figure 2. Each Onsite Contest will be conducted as follows: The Grand Prize Winner and up to ten (10) Guests will go onto the football field with the contest representatives at a time designated by the Sponsor (varies by team/market). Each of the Guests will have the opportunity to throw a league regulation-sized football, NCAA or NFL respective to the venue, in an attempt to hit the Guest Target (“Guest Target”), which will be provided by the Sponsor. The Guest Target will not be smaller than six (6) feet by eight (8) feet in diameter and must not be altered in any way by the participants. The Guest Target will be a board or other solid structure that will be perpendicular to the playing surface. The Grand Prize Winner will determine the order in which the Guests will attempt the throw prior to the start of the Onsite Contest. The Guests will not be permitted any practice, warm-up, or qualifying throws of any kind on the day of the Onsite Contest with the Guest Target, nor will any one Guest be selected to participate more than once during this Promotion or any Onsite Contest. The Onsite Contest will begin with Guest #1 throwing a league regulation-sized football, NCAA or NFL respective to the venue, from behind a line ten (10) yards from the Guest Target (the “Demarcation Line” or “Line of Scrimmage”) to try and hit the Guest Target. The Guest’s toes may not come in contact with or cross the Demarcation Line prior to the Guest releasing the ball. Each Guest is permitted only one (1) throw of a league regulation-sized football, NCAA or NFL respective to the venue, to hit the Guest Target. The throw will be considered successful if the football hits the Guest Target on the fly from the side of the Guest Target nearest the Contestant, prior to coming in contact with any other object or person. Remaining Guests (up to a total of 10) will repeat this process, with each attempting to hit the Guest Target with a ten (10)-yard throw from behind the Demarcation Line. 8 Following the completion of all attempts by each of the Guests, the Grand Prize Winner will have one (1) opportunity to throw a league regulation-sized football, NCAA or NFL respective to the venue, through the Grand Prize Winner Target Hole (“Grand Prize Winner Target Hole”). The Sponsor will provide the Grand Prize Winner Target Template (“Grand Prize Winner Target Template”), which when combined with the Grand Prize Winner Target Hole will create the Grand Prize Target. The Grand Prize Winner Target Hole will not exceed ten (10) inches in diameter and must not be altered in any way by the participants. The Grand Prize Winner Target Template will be attached to a board or other solid structure in such a manner that the bottom of the round Grand Prize Winner Target Hole is no less than four (4) feet above the playing surface. The Grand Prize Winner Target Template will be perpendicular to the playing surface. The Grand Prize Winner will not be permitted any practice, warm-up, or qualifying throws involving the Target Template. The Grand Prize Winner will not be permitted any practice, warm-up, or qualifying throws on the day of the Onsite Contest.
