  7.

    Background Check:   In connection with the Grand Prize Drawing, Sponsor may conduct a background check to confirm any potential winner’s eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules.  By entering the Grand Prize Drawing, you agree to cooperate reasonably with any such background check.  Failure to cooperate may result in disqualification and selection of an alternate winner.  If a background check reveals that a potential winner (or guest) has engaged in conduct that could damage the reputation or business of the Sponsor, as determined by Sponsor in its discretion, the potential winner may be disqualified and the Grand Prize may be awarded to an alternate winner, time permitting.
