Door Prize Objectives & Philosophy.
Our overall objective is simple, we want every prize to be given away and we want to maximize the number of individual, unique winners so that we spread the pool of door prizes to the greatest number of guests.  Members of the Chattanooga Amateur Radio Club do not participate in our official Hamfest Chattanooga Door Prize Program so as to maximize the quantity of door prizes available for our guests.  Club members are permitted to participate in any door prize programs offered independently of our event by on-site vendors.  Rules of independent door prizes offered by on-site vendors are solely within the purview of the vendor.
 

Hamfest Chattanooga Door Prize Program Summary

For Grand Prizes, you do NOT have to be present to win.  If the Grand Prize winner is not present at the time of the drawing, we will attempt to contact the winner for seven days after the event using the contact information provided on their door prize entry stub.  If we receive no response within that period, we will cease efforts and contact the runner-up winner from the alternate winning ticket drawn at the same time.  All winners and runner-up winners will be publicly announced at the event and on our website.
 
For Hourly Prizes, you DO have to be present to win.  Hourly Prize winners have 15 minutes to claim prizes.  After that, the prize is put up for a subsequent drawing.  The door prize stubs of hourly winners are removed from additional consideration for hourly prizes.  We do add all hourly winners back into the prize drum for the Grand Prize Drawing near the close of the event on Saturday.
 
All winners in our door prize program must sign a simple Prize Accountability form which documents who-won-what for prize donors and to advise winners of potential sales taxes which may be due to appropriate tax authorities (depends on the value of the door prize).
