All Entries become the property of Sponsors and will not be acknowledged. Entries must be received before 11:59 P.M. ET on June 21, 2013 to be eligible for the Sweepstakes.

Entries generated by a script, macro, or other automated means will be disqualified. Entries that are incomplete, garbled, corrupted, or unintelligible for any reason, including, but not limited to, computer or network malfunction or congestion, are void and will not be accepted. In case of a dispute over the identity of an entrant who made a potentially winning Entry, Sponsors reserve the right to deem that the Entry was made by the registered subscriber of the email address submitted at the time of entry. Entry constitutes permission (except where prohibited by law) to use entrant's name, city, state, likeness, image, and/or voice for purposes of advertising, promotion, and publicity in any and all media now or hereafter known, throughout the world in perpetuity, without additional compensation, notification, permission, or approval.

If, at any time, you no longer wish to receive materials from WRC or our partners, please go to our privacy policy, located at http://www.nbcwashington.com/privacy, or the respective partner’s privacy policy, and follow the procedures indicated.

WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION: On or about June 28, 2013, ten (10) potential winners (“Winners”) will be selected in a random drawing by representatives of Sponsors from all eligible Entries received during the Sweepstakes Period. Sponsors will make two (2) attempts to notify each potential Winner at the phone number and/or email address submitted at the time of entry. Potential Winners may be required to return completed, signed, and notarized affidavits of eligibility, releases of liability, and, except where prohibited, publicity releases (collectively, “Sweepstakes Documents”) within two (2) days of such notification. Noncompliance within this time period will result in disqualification, and an alternate potential Winner may be selected from the remaining eligible Entries at Sponsors’ sole discretion. If a potential Winner cannot be reached, if he/she is found to ineligible, if he/she cannot or does not comply with these Official Rules, or if his/her Prize (defined below) or Prize notification is returned as undeliverable, such potential Winner will be disqualified and, time permitting, an alternate potential Winner may be selected from the remaining eligible Entries at Sponsors’ sole discretion. Limit one (1) Prize per family or household.

PRIZE: There will be ten (10) prizes (“Prizes”) awarded, with one (1) Prize to each Winner. Each Prize consists of the following: four (4) tickets to Six Flags, located at 13710 Central Avenue, Upper Marlboro, MD 20774, for Winner and up to three (3) guests (“Guests”). Each Prize is valid through July 31, 2013. Prizes do not include transportation or parking.

Estimated Retail Value (“ERV”) of each Prize is two hundred and twenty four dollars ($224). Total ERV of all Prizes is two thousand two hundred and forty dollars ($2,240). Actual Retail Value (“ARV”) of Prizes may vary. Any difference between stated ERV and ARV will not be awarded. All details of Prizes will be determined by Sponsors and/or Prize Provider in their sole discretion. Sponsors reserve the right to substitute a similar Prize of comparable or greater value at their sole discretion. All taxes and other expenses, costs, or fees associated with the acceptance and/or use of each Prize are the sole responsibility of each Winner. Prizes cannot be transferred by Winners or redeemed for cash and are valid only for the items detailed above, with no substitution of Prizes by Winners. If a Prize is unclaimed within a reasonable time after notification from Sponsors, as determined by Sponsors in their sole discretion, it will be forfeited, and time permitting, an alternate Winner may be selected from the remaining eligible Entries at Sponsors’ sole discretion. If a Prize element is not available for any reason, the remaining elements of each Prize shall constitute full satisfaction of Sponsors' Prize obligation to each Winner, and no additional compensation will be awarded. No other elements, including travel or hotel accommodations, will be provided as a part of any Prize. Sponsors shall have no responsibility or liability for cancellations, delays, or any other change by any company or person providing any element of each Prize, and are not responsible or liable for any expenses incurred as a consequence thereof. If a Winner chooses to redeem his/her Prize with fewer than three (3) or no Guests, the remaining elements of his/her Prize shall constitute full satisfaction of Sponsors’ Prize obligation to such Winner and no additional compensation will be awarded. Guests, if any, may be required to execute and return releases of liability and, except where prohibited, publicity releases (collectively, “Guest Documents”), which must be returned with the Sweepstakes Documents, or Guest portion of Prizes will be forfeited. If any Guest is a minor, Winner must be such minor’s parent or legal guardian and must execute and return the Guest Documents on such minor’s behalf. Prizes are subject to certain terms and conditions as specified by issuer.

CONDITIONS: By entering the Sweepstakes, each entrant agrees for entrant and for entrant’s heirs, executors, and administrators (a) to release and hold harmless Sweepstakes Entities and their respective officers, directors, and employees (collectively, “Released Parties”) from any liability, illness, injury, death, loss, litigation, or damage that may occur, directly or indirectly, whether caused by negligence or not, from such entrant’s participation in the Sweepstakes and/or his/her acceptance, possession, use, or misuse of Prize or any portion thereof (including any travel related thereto); (b) to indemnify Released Parties from any and all liability resulting or arising from the Sweepstakes and to hereby acknowledge that Released Parties have neither made nor are in any manner responsible or liable for any warranty, representation, or guarantee, express or implied, in fact or in law, relative to Prize, including express warranties provided exclusively by Prize supplier that are sent along with Prize; (c) if selected as a Winner, to the posting of such entrant’s name on the Website and the use by Released Parties of such name, voice, image, and/or likeness for publicity, promotional, and advertising purposes without additional compensation, and, upon request, to the giving of consent, in writing, to such use; and (d) to be bound by these Official Rules and to waive any right to claim any ambiguity or error therein or in the Sweepstakes itself, and to be bound by all decisions of the Sponsors, which are binding and final. Failure to comply with these conditions may result in disqualification from the Sweepstakes at Sponsors’ sole discretion.

ADDITIONAL TERMS: Sponsors reserve the right to permanently disqualify from any promotion any person they believe has intentionally violated these Official Rules. Any attempt to deliberately damage the Sweepstakes or the operation thereof is unlawful and subject to legal action by Sponsors, who may seek damages to the fullest extent permitted by law. The failure of Sponsors to comply with any provision of these Official Rules due to an act of God, hurricane, war, fire, riot, earthquake, terrorism, act of public enemies, actions of governmental authorities outside of the control of Sponsors (excepting compliance with applicable codes and regulations), or other “force majeure” event will not be considered a breach of these Official Rules. Released Parties assume no responsibility for any injury or damage to entrants’ or to any other person’s computer relating to or resulting from entering or downloading materials or software in connection with the Sweepstakes. Released Parties are not responsible for telecommunications, network, electronic, technical, or computer failures of any kind; for inaccurate transcription of Entry information; for errors in any promotional or marketing materials or in these Official Rules; for any human or electronic error; or for Entries that are stolen, misdirected, garbled, delayed, lost, late, damaged, or returned. Sponsors reserve the right to cancel, modify, or suspend the Sweepstakes or any element thereof (including, without limitation, these Official Rules) without notice in any manner and for any reason (including, without limitation, in the event of any unanticipated occurrence that is not fully addressed in these Official Rules). In the event of cancellation, modification, or suspension, Sponsors reserve the right to select Winners in a random drawing from among all eligible, non-suspect entries received prior to the time of the event warranting such cancellation, modification, or suspension. Notice of such cancellation, modification, or suspension will be posted on the Website. Sponsors may prohibit any entrant or potential entrant from participating in the Sweepstakes, if such entrant or potential entrant shows a disregard for these Official Rules; acts with an intent to annoy, abuse, threaten, or harass any other entrant, Sponsors, or Sponsors’ agents or representatives; or behaves in any other disruptive manner (as determined by Sponsors in their sole discretion).
