HOW TO ENTER.
To enter, visit http://www.missionhockey.com/ and complete and submit the online registration form. Sweepstakes ends November 15, 2010 at 8 a.m. Central Time. Limit one (1) entry per person/email address per day.
All entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned. Released Parties (as defined below) are not responsible for late, lost, stolen, misdirected, misplaced, illegible, inaccurate, mutilated, damaged, incomplete, undelivered or delayed entries.
For purposes of these Official Rules, “receipt” of an entry occurs when Sponsor's servers record the entry information. Any automated computer receipt (such as one confirming delivery of email) does not constitute proof of actual receipt by Sponsor of an entry. Every entry must be manually keystroked by entrant. Automated entries (including but not limited to entries submitted using any bot, script, macro, or Sweepstakes service), third party entries, copies, facsimiles and/or mechanical reproductions are not permitted and will be disqualified.
The person submitting an entry must be the authorized account holder of the email address provided with the entry. “Authorized account holder” is the natural person who is assigned to an email address by the Internet Access Provider, online service provider, or other organization that is responsible for assigning email addresses. In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of the person submitting an entry, the entry will be deemed to be submitted by the person in whose name the email account is registered. Potential winner may be required to provide Sponsor with proof that he/she is the authorized account holder of the email address associated with that entry.
Released Parties are not responsible for any computer, online, telephone or technical malfunctions that may occur, for any incorrect or inaccurate information, whether caused by website users, any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Sweepstakes, or any electronic, technical, printing, typographical, human or other error which may occur in connection with the administration of the Sweepstakes, the processing of entries in the Sweepstakes, the announcement of the prizes or in any Sweepstakes-related materials; or for any error, omission, interruption, deletion, defect, delay in operation or transmission, communications line failure, theft or destruction or unauthorized access to or alteration of entries or for any problems, failures or technical malfunction of any telephone network or lines, computer online systems, servers, providers, computer equipment, software, email, players or browsers on account of technical problems or traffic congestion on the Internet, at any website or on account of any combination of the foregoing. Released Parties are also not responsible for any injury or damage to an entrant's or other person's computer related to or resulting from participating in Sweepstakes or downloading Sweepstakes information or materials. If, for any reason, the Sweepstakes is not capable of running as planned, due to infection by computer virus, bugs, tampering, unauthorized intervention, fraud, technical failures, or any other causes which corrupt or affect the administration, security, fairness, integrity or proper conduct of this Sweepstakes, Sponsor reserves the right at its sole discretion to cancel, terminate, modify or suspend the Sweepstakes in whole or in part and, if terminated, at its discretion, randomly select potential winner from among all eligible, non-suspect entries legitimately received prior to the cancellation, termination or modification. Notice of any cancellation, termination or modification will be posted on the website. By entering the Sweepstakes, entrants (or, if eligible minors, their parents or legal guardians) agree to Sponsor's use of their personal information for the purposes of administering this Sweepstakes.
Sponsor reserves the right at its sole discretion to disqualify from this Sweepstakes and any future Sweepstakes conducted by Sponsor, any individual (and void his/her entry) it finds to be tampering or attempting to tamper with the entry process, the operation of the Sweepstakes or the Website, violating these Official Rules, or acting in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner, or with intent to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other person.

ODDS OF WINNING. Odds of winning are dependent on the number of eligible entries received during the Entry Period.
RESIDENTS OF CANADA. ONLY. If any of the potential winners are a resident of Canada, to be declared the winner, he or she must correctly answer, without assistance of any kind, whether mechanical or otherwise, a mathematical skill-testing question, to be administered by phone, mail or email, as Sponsor elects, or prize will be forfeited and, at Sponsor's discretion, an alternate winner selected.
PRIZE WINNER SELECTION/NOTIFICATION/RELEASES. A potential prize winner will be selected in a random drawing from among all eligible entries received from entrants. The random drawing will be conducted by Sponsor. The potential prize winner will be notified by a verifiable means and may be required to execute and return an Affidavit (or, for residents of Canada, a Declaration) of Eligibility, a Liability Release and, except where prohibited, a Publicity Release within a time period specified by Sponsor. If, despite reasonable efforts, a potential winner does not respond within five (5) days of the first notification attempt, or if the prize or prize notification is returned as unclaimed or undeliverable to such potential winner, such potential winner will forfeit his or her prize and an alternate winner may be selected. If any potential winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules or declines a prize for any reason prior to award, such potential winner will be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected. Sponsor will successively attempt to contact up to two (2) potential winners of the prize in accordance with such procedure, and if there is still no confirmed winner of the prize in question after such attempts have been made, the prize may go unawarded. If required documents are not timely returned, if prize notification or prize is returned as undeliverable or in the event of noncompliance with these Official Rules, prize will be forfeited and, at Sponsor's discretion, awarded to a randomly selected alternate. If a potential prize winner is not of legal age of majority in his/her state/province of residence, the prize may be awarded in the name of his/her parent or legal guardian who will be responsible for fulfilling all requirements imposed on the winner set forth herein, including executing and returning all required documentation.
