2018 BCW Passport Challenge Official Rules

Eligibility and Entry Process:

During the 2018 GAMA Trade Show in Reno, Nevada, guests in the exhibit hall with a retailer badge are invited to enter this sweepstakes. The exhibit hall is open to registered GAMA members on Wednesday, March 14th, 2018 from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. local time and on Thursday, March 15th, 2018 from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. To learn more about GAMA membership, visit here.

To enter the contest, retailer guests must visit the BCW Supplies booth (621) during exhibit hall hours, but before 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 15th, and provide their name, email, business name, and business location to the BCW associate. Then the BCW associate will provide the guest with a “BCW Passport”. To complete the entry process, the guest must visit the three BCW distributors’ GAMA booths, as listed on the Passport. These include ACD Distribution (Booth 515), GTS Distribution (Booth 116), and PHD (Booth 535). The guest must get the passport stamped at these booths (one stamp per booth). When the passport has been stamped at all three booths, the guest must return to the BCW Supplies booth and provide the stamped Passport to the BCW Supplies associate who will stamp the Passport a fourth time. Then the BCW Supplies associate will tear the numbered and stamped stub from the Passport and place the stub in an entry box. It is encouraged to return the stamped Passport by 4:30 p.m. (local time) on Thursday, March 15th, 2018, however the stamped Passports will be accepted up to the drawing time.

Each GAMA retailer guest may enter the contest once. The guest should retain the BCW Passport (minus the numbered and stamped stub) so they can match their Passport number to the winning selected number, if that number is drawn in the selection process.

Winner Selection Process:

At 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 15th, 2018, BCW Supplies will conduct a random drawing from all eligible entries at the BCW Supplies GAMA booth (621). The process will involve randomly picking a numbered stub from the entry box. A BCW associate or a guest will announce the number shown on the entry stub. The potential winner must be present to win. After the number has been announced, the potential winner will have two minutes to claim the prize. To claim the prize, the retailer guest must show the BCW associate their numbered Passport along with their GAMA retailer badge. The name on the retailer GAMA badge must match the name provided the BCW Supplies when they picked-up their badge (someone cannot claim the prize on behalf of the actual winner). If the potential winner has not claimed the prize at the BCW Supplies booth after 2 minutes, BCW Supplies will randomly select another numbered stub from the entry box and announce that number. Again, the potential winner will have two minutes to claim their prize, in the same process as stated above. This process will proceed until a winner has claimed the prize.

Prize:

One Passport Challenge participant will win:

  • One Magic: the Gathering Black Lotus card, signed by MTG inventor Richard Garfield and artist Christopher Rush (White Border, played)
  • One pack BCW Elite Deck Guards*
  • One BCW Deck Locker LX*
  • One BCW 12-Pocket Z-Folio LX*
