The Great Treasure Hunt Contest 2018 Official Rules
The Great Treasure Hunt (“Contest”) is an educational and recreational promotion presented by WSCF, Treasure Coast Educational Media; and West Bay Trading Company.
Participating Sponsors include: West Bay Trading Company
The contest is open to all residents of the United States who are of at least eighteen (18) years of age except employees of the above mentioned sponsoring businesses, their parent companies and subsidiaries, and their immediate family members. No purchase is necessary.
This contest consists of two phases:
Participating individuals must register online to receive their “hunting license” at www.christianfm.com. In addition, individuals must listen to the station to hear clues announced. Participants who are registered will receive text messages alerting them of when the next clue will be aired. Christian FM encourages participants to download the Christian FM app as clues may be offered sooner or additional clues may be offered via the app. Once the clues begin to air, the next phase is to find the canister consisting of a key.
At up to seven locations somewhere within Indian River, Brevard, St. Lucie, or Martin Counties (Florida), a small gold plastic canister (qualifying prize) will be hidden. No prizes will be hidden North of Melbourne or South of Stuart.
Each canister will be hidden in a location that is easily accessible during typical daytime business hours. (Locations may or may not be accessible before or after such hours). No purchase necessary to access a key.
NO DIGGING IS REQUIRED TO LOCATE QUALIFYING PRIZE. ABSOLUTELY NO TOOLS OR UTENSILS ARE REQUIRED TO LOCATE PRIZE. Anyone found with digging utensils will be automatically disqualified from this contest.
Inside each canister will be:
1) A key
2) Contact information for WSCF
3) Certificate number for authentication
Upon discovery of the canister, contestant should immediately phone 800-780-3692 to inform WSCF of the discovery. Contestant will be asked to leave a message giving their name, a contact number, and the certificate number to prove authenticity.
Each of the “qualified” contestants (those who find a canister) will receive real Spanish Treasure including a 1715 Fleet 1/2 Reale, a Bronze Spike, 2 Musket Balls, and Pottery Chards.
A contestant may only become “qualified” ONCE. Only one winner is allowed per immediate household.
All qualified contestants will be invited to a Grand Prize event held at a time and location to be determined by the Radio Station. Each qualified contestant will be invited to attempt to open a locked chest after trading in their qualification key and randomly choosing from another set of keys provided by the radio station. ONLY 1 OF THE KEYS WILL ACTUALLY OPEN THE CHEST. The contestant with the opening key will be declared the Grand Prize Winner.
If for some reason a qualified contestant cannot attend the grand prize event, they have permission by the Radio Station to send one individual in their place after notifying the station of their absence. The Grand Prize Winner will receive real Spanish Treasure including:
