Rules for WSGW Wohlfeil Winter Forecast Contest

WSGW will partner with Wohlfeil Hardware to give a snowblower to the person who correctly predicts the date of the first five inch or more snowfall with accumulation measured on WSGW’s Official Weather Observation Deck located at 1795 Tittabawassee Road.

The contest registration will occur at beginning November 28 and ending December 19th or when a 5 inch plus accumulation is measured, whichever comes first. The correct entry received will win the Ariens Compact 22 Snow Blower with a value of $729.  In the event of multiple correct entries received guessing the same day, a random drawing will be held to determine the winner.  If no entry is received guessing the proper day, the closest date will win.  If someone guesses the day before and someone guesses the day after the correct date, a drawing will be held between those entries to determine the winner.  Only one entry may be submitted per person.

Entries may also be submitted by visiting Wohlfeil Hardware and submitting a slip in our contest registration box.  All on-line and registration box entries will be combined in determining the contest winner.

WSGW will do a measurement each day beginning November 28th and continuing through the winter until a 5 inch accumulation is measured.  This will be done and reported daily after the 7:30am newscast.  The snowfall may begin on one day, but the winning date may actually be the next day if the weather event sweeps across midnight.  The time at which we measure 5 inches of new snow determines the winning date.

Employees and immediate family members of NextMedia and Wohlfeil may not participate in this contest.  The contest winner is responsible for any tax liability.
