2019 Kuskokwim Ice Classic Rules
1) Winner is determined by the person or persons who guess the exact minute of breakup. If no one has guessed the exact minute of breakup, the next closest minute on either side of the exact minute will be the winning time. In the event of multiple winners, the pot will be split accordingly. The Ice Classic does not measure seconds.
*Example: Clock stops at 5 pm. If there is no 5:00 pm guess or guesses, and the next closest guesses are 4:57 pm and 5:03 pm, both guesses would win as they are the closest guesses to the exact minute of breakup (and are equal minutes apart from the exact time of breakup).
2) The winner will earn $12,500 (split equally in the event of multiple winners). An individual can only win ONE time (example: if Person A submits two guesses for April 30 at 4:57 pm and Person B submits one guess for April 30 at 4:57 pm and that time wins, the prize is split 50/50, NOT 2/3 and 1/3).
3) All State statutes and regulations apply
4) If breakup occurs on or before April 22, 2019 at 7 pm, guesses must be submitted no later than the day before breakup occurs in order to be eligible to win. We will collect and separate guesses submitted at the end of the day each day if it appears that breakup may happen before the submission deadline date. Customers who choose to purchase tickets and wait to turn them in should be aware of weather conditions and the dropbox locations where tickets may be returned, as well as the business hours that allow accessibility to those dropbox locations, to ensure eligible guesses are entered in compliance with this rule.
*Example 1: Clock stops at 4 pm on April 21. Any eligible guess would need to have been submitted by or on April 20.
Example 2: Clock stops at 7:30 pm on April 22. Because the deadline has passed, all guesses up to the April 22 at 7 pm deadline are eligible.
5) No Board members or employees of BCSF are eligible to win.
6) If the winner has died, is unable to be located or refuses the prize, the next closest guess will be determined as the winner.
7) Time will be determined based on the official clock. A secondary, backup clock will be used. If both of these clocks fail, the third method used to determine the winner will be the webcam time/date stamp and/or the use of technology, i.e. gps coordinates/spotting scope based on distance calculated for tripod movement to cause the clock to stop. If malfunction or another issue causes a situation where it is impossible to determine the winner using these methods, customers who purchased tickets must provide their ticket stubs and request refunds. BCSF will refund ticket purchases at the value for which they were purchased.
8) The Kuskokwim Ice Classic Committee will make other recommendations about processes and decisions on an as-needed basis and will forward those recommendations to the BCSF Board for final approval.
**Guesses must be submitted at the time of sale OR placed in an official dropoff box by 7 pm on April 22nd.**
