4. How to Enter
During the Sweepstakes Entry Period go to www.finewoodworking.com/sweepstakes/laguna (the “Website”) and complete the online entry form by providing your full name (as shown on your photo ID), email address, and ZIP/Postal Code. Limit one (1) entry per person per day for the Sweepstakes. Each individual who is eligible to enter, as described in Section 1 above (“Entrant”), must use his/her own email address to enter the Sweepstakes. You are not permitted to share the same email address with another Entrant. Use of any automated system to enter is prohibited and will result in disqualification. In the event of a dispute as to any Entrant, the authorized account holder of the email address used to enter 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. Potential winners may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder to be awarded the prize.

5. Winner Determination
On or about April 23, 2019, Sponsor will select one (1) winner for the prize package described below in a random drawing from all valid entries received. The selected Entrant will be contacted using the email address provided with the entry and may be awarded the prize subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with the terms of these Official Rules. The potential winner will be notified by email on or about April 30, 2018. Failure by potential winner to respond to the initial verification within forty-eight (48) hours of notification will result in disqualification and Sponsor will select an alternate potential winner in the same manner. Odds of winning a Sweepstakes prize depend on the number of eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Entry Period. If any potential winner is a Canadian resident he/she will be required to answer a time limited skill testing question without assistance, in order to be eligible to receive a prize.
