3.HOW TO ENTER
During the Promotion Period, visit www.travelmeredith.com/ExploreBanderaSweeps
and follow the links and instructions to complete and submit the registration form including a valid home
address. P.O. Boxes are not permitted. By registering for the Sweepstakes, you will also be registering
for travelmeredith.com. You automatically will receive one (1) entry into the Sweepstakes. Limit: You
may enter one (1) time per day during the Promotion Period. Multiple entrants are not permitted to share
the same email address. Any attempt by any entrant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by
using multiple/different email addresses, identities, registrations and logins, or any other methods will void
that entrant’s entries and that entrant may be disqualified. Use of any automated system to participate is
prohibited and will result in disqualification. In the event of a dispute as to any registration, the authorized
account holder of the email address used to register will be deemed to be the entrant. The “authorized
account holder” is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online
service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain
associated with the submitted address. The potential winner may be required to show proof of being the
authorized account holder.
4.GRAND PRIZE DRAWING
Administrator is an independent judging organization whose decisions as to the
administration and operation of the Sweepstakes and the selection of the potential winner are final and
binding in all matters related to the Sweepstakes. Administrator will randomly select the potential
Sweepstakes winner from all eligible entries received during the Promotion Period, on or around June 1,
2015. The potential winner will be notified by email, mail or phone. Except where prohibited, the
potential Grand Prize winner (or parent/legal guardian if winner is a minor in his/her state of residence)
will be required to sign and return a Declaration of Compliance, Liability and Publicity Release
(“Declaration”) which must be received by Administrator, within seven (7) days of the date notice or
attempted notice is sent, in order to claim the prize. If a potential winner of any prize cannot be
contacted, fails to sign and return the Declaration or provide any other requested information, within the
required time period (if applicable), or the prize is returned as undeliverable, the potential winner forfeits
the prize. Receiving a prize is contingent upon compliance with these Official Rules. In the event that the
potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the prize to an alternate winner by
random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries. Only three (3) alternate drawings will be held,
after which the prize will remain un-awarded.

Sponsor reserves the right to substitute the prize for one of equal or greater value if the designated prize should become unavailable for any reason. Winner is responsible for all taxes and fees associated with prize receipt and/or use. Odds of winning the Sweepstakes prize depend on the number of eligible entries received during the Promotion Period.
By receipt of any prize, winner agrees to release and hold harmless Sponsor, Texas Office of the Governor, Economic Development and Tourism, Administrator, and their respective subsidiaries, affiliates, suppliers, distributors, advertising/promotion agencies, and prize suppliers, and each of their respective parent companies and each such company’s officers, directors, employees and agents (collectively, the “Released Parties”) from and against any claim or cause of action, including, but not limited to, personal injury, death, or damage to or loss of property, arising out of participation in the Sweepstakes or receipt or use or misuse of any prize.
Except where prohibited, participation in the Sweepstakes constitutes the winner’s consent
to Sponsor’s and its agents’ use of winner’s name, likeness, photograph, voice, opinions and/or
hometown and state for promotional purposes in any media, worldwide, without further payment or
Sponsor reserves the right to cancel, suspend and/or modify the Sweepstakes,
or any part of it, if any fraud, technical failures, human error or any other factor impairs the integrity or
proper functioning of the Sweepstakes, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. In such event,
Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may elect to hold a random drawing from among all eligible entries
received up to the date of discontinuance for any or all of the prizes offered herein. Sponsor reserves the
right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the entry process or the
operation of the Sweepstakes or to be acting in violation of the Official Rules of this or any other
promotion or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner. Any attempt by any person to deliberately
undermine the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and,
should such an attempt be made, Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to
the fullest extent permitted by law. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not
constitute a waiver of that provision.
