A contest is being held here for military members and their families.  For those of you who do not know, ArmyMWR.com runs a promotional site to feature the Armed Forces Recreation Centers (AFRC) and is holding a contest until the end of August to increase attendence.  Thanks to my fellow officer, LTC Mike for finding this one for me.  Here are the relevant contest conditions:

  • HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:  The Great Getaways Sweepstakes promotion is an online sweepstakes.  The Sweepstakes will begin at 12:01 a.m. Central Standard Time (CST) on July 2, 2012 and ends at 11:59 p.m. CST on August 31, 2012.  Enter by completing the official registration (email address, postal address, name, etc.) online at www.afrcresorts.com and completing the online trivia-match game.  Collection of registration information is required on the first visit only to the site.  Repeat visits require login using registered email address and password.Eligible participants will match trivia facts (photo cards) about the Armed Forces Recreation Center Resorts (AFRCs).  Each match will result in a ‘Did You Know’ pop-up where patrons can learn more about each resort and their offerings.  Participants are encouraged to share the ‘Great Getaways Sweepstakes’ promotion through social media mediums and challenge other eligible patrons to beat their time. Upon completion of the game, eligible participants will receive one entry into the sweepstakes.

    LIMIT: Only one entry per day per valid email address (maximum 61 total entries); no entries generated by mechanical reproduction or other means will be accepted.  No group entries.  The grand prize drawing will be from all eligible entries received throughout the duration of the Sweepstakes.

  • ELIGIBILITY:  The Great Getaways Sweepstakes promotion is open ONLY to current Active Duty, Reserve and National Guard service members from all branches of service, their Family members, Retirees and DoD Civilians.  All participants must be eighteen years or older or the age of majority in their state of residence whichever is older to enter.
  • PRIZES: There are four (4) prizes to be awarded. Grand prize vacation package(s) to Dragon Hill Lodge and Resort, Hale Koa Hotel and Edelweiss Lodge and Resort include: Two airline tickets to an AFRC (Approximate Retail Value or “ARV” $4,000), lodging for two (one room – seven-night stay/lodging) (ARV $500), and gift card (ARV $500).  (Total grand prize package for each vacation package is ARV $5,000).  The grand prize vacation package to Shades of Green includes: Four airline tickets to an AFRC (ARV $8,000), lodging for four (up to two rooms authorized – seven-night stay/lodging) (ARV $1,000), and gift card (ARV $1,000).  (Total grand prize package for the SoG vacation package is ARV $10,000).  Costs of meals, ground transportation, and all other expenses not specified as part of the vacation prize package are the sole responsibility of the winner.  Prize may be subject to blackout periods, and other restrictions may apply.

So good luck to all who enter and please let me know if you are a winner!
