Incomplete or duplicate entries for any drawing will be void. The Phoenix Suns is not responsible for inaccurate entry information, whether caused by participant or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in this contest, or by any technical or human error that may occur in the processing of entries. Mechanically reproduced or automated entries are not permitted and will be deemed void. There is a maximum of one (1) entry per person.
Each participant must dribble a NBA regulation-size basketball continuously until ONLY ONE participant is left dribbling. The last participant left dribbling wins the Grand Prize. Participants must be available on the Bud Light Paseo of US Airways Center from Sunday, April 1, 2012 at 8:45am until every other participant forfeits the contest in order to win the Grand Prize. Participants must have access to transportation to and from the venue. If driving a vehicle to the contest, the participant must have a valid driver’s license. However, participants are discouraged from driving and encouraged to make alternate arrangements for transportation on April 1, 2012.
Each Contestant will be equipped with ONE NBA regulation-size basketball. The basketball must be dribbled continuously, hand on the ball at a time, or the participant will be disqualified. It is the participant’s responsibility to control his/her ball and be aware of his/her surroundings at all times. Each participant is ultimately responsible for other individuals interfering with his/her “Dribble.” Participants can dribble sitting on the ground or standing as long as the participant continuously dribbles. Chairs will not be allowed inside the contest’s designated dribbling area.
Participants will be allowed one five (5) minute break every other hour until the contest ends. The five (5) minute breaks will be broken up into three (3) different 5 minute shifts at times to be determined by the Phoenix Suns. If a participant needs to stop dribbling to use the restroom at ANY other time outside the allotted 5 minutes, the participant will be disqualified. Also, participants may eat or drink (non-alcoholic beverage) at anytime throughout the course of the contest (during the 5 minute break OR while dribbling). If the food or drink interferes with a participant’s continuous dribbling, the participant will be disqualified.
The Phoenix Suns reserve the right to implement, at any time during the promotion, dribbling challenges in which all remaining participants must participate.
