  1.  Eligibility. Subject to the additional restrictions below, the Eagle’s $1000 Weekends (the “Sweepstakes”) is open residents of the state of Texas who are 18 years or older at the time of entry. Employees of Cox Media Group (“Sponsor”), and each of its respective affiliated companies, subsidiaries, and advertising and promotional agencies, and the family members of, and any persons domiciled with, any such employees, are not eligible to enter or to win. The term “family members” includes spouses, parents, grandparents, siblings, children, grandchildren and in-laws, regardless of where they live. 

 

  1.  How To Enter. The Sweepstakes will begin at 5:00 p.m. (C.T.) on November 17, 2017 and end at 6:00 p.m. (C.T.) on December 3, 2017 (the “Sweepstakes Period”). Sponsor will be the official timekeeper for the Sweepstakes.

 

 To enter, listen to Houston’s Eagle radio broadcast (the “Show”) during the following dates and times during the Sweepstakes Period:

  • November 17, 2017 from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. 
  • November 18, 2017 and November 19, 2017 from 10:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m.

  • December 2, 2017 and December 3, 2017 from 10:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. 

Sponsor will play the “money sounder” for you to listen for and when you hear it play, call Sponsor’s Sweepstakes Line at 713-343-1075 to try to be the 12th caller. Subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules, the 12th person to call Sponsor’s Sweepstakes Line, as solely determined by Sponsor, will become a Finalist. 

 

To qualify as a Finalist, (a) you must be listening to the Show at the time the announcement is broadcast; (b) you must be declared by Sponsor to be the 12th person to call Sponsor’s Sweepstakes Line at 713-343-1075; and (c) you must comply with all other terms and conditions of these Official Rules. Telephone calls will be taken by Sweepstakes operators in the order they are received, and the operators will count the number of calls received after each on-air Sweepstakes announcement to determine the 12th caller. The determinations of Sponsor and Sweepstakes operators will be final and binding in all respects. 

 

Enter as often as you like, provided that automatic telephone dialing equipment or other software or computer assisted dialing equipment is prohibited and will result in disqualification. Once your total winnings have reached $600 or more in the past 30 days between all 3 of Cox Media Group Houston stations (The New 93Q, Country Legends 97.1 and Houston’s Eagle), you will be required to wait 30 days until you may win again with our radio stations. 

 

Listeners accessing Sponsor’s radio station audio via IP connections like website-based streaming or mobile devices are welcome to enter. However, Sponsor cannot be responsible for delays in electronic transmission of station audio to IP devices. By entering this Sweepstakes, listeners acknowledge and agree to this specific provision of these Official Rules. In addition, Sponsor will not be responsible for loss of service to the Sweepstakes Line or for a participant’s failure to reach the Sweepstakes Line due to malfunction of any network or system, congestion, any technical or human error, failures or malfunctions of any kind, including the congestion, overload, busy signals, or any other factor that may prevent an individual from completing his/her phone call. In the event of interruption of power or telephone service to Sponsor during a call-in period of the Sweepstakes prior to accepting the 12th caller, or a change in programming that results in Sponsor’s inability to air a call-in opportunity, Sponsor will not replay the affected call-in opportunity and the number of Finalists opportunities awarded in this Sweepstakes will be reduced accordingly. If a 12th caller is ineligible, or fails to comply with any term of condition of these Official Rules, that caller will be disqualified and no Finalist will be selected during that call-in period.

 

  1.  Winner Selection and Odds. A maximum of 54 (fifty-four) Grand Prize winners will be selected during the Sweepstakes Period. Odds of becoming a Finalist depend on the number of eligible participants who call to participate during a particular call-in period and the order in which calls are received.

 

  1.  Prize Description. Subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules, winner will receive a check for $1000.

 

Total ARV of all prizes to be awarded in the Sweepstakes: $54,000

  1.  Winner Notification and Acceptance. To claim his/her prize, the potential winner must personally visit Sponsor’s offices at 1990 Post Oak Blvd, Suite 2300 Houston, TX 77056 within 10 business days after notification (office visits must be between the hours of 9 a.m. (C.S.T.) and 5 p.m. (C.S.T.) weekdays) and must present a valid government-issued photo ID and fill out a 1099 tax form.

 

Potential winners may be required to complete an affidavit of eligibility, and a liability and publicity release (except where prohibited by law), which must be returned within 24 hours of notification 

 

Sponsor’s inability to reach a potential winner after a reasonable (as solely determined by Sponsor) effort has been made, the failure of a potential winner to timely respond to a prize notification, the return of any prize notification as undeliverable, and/or a potential winner’s failure to comply with any term or condition of these Official Rules may, in Sponsor’s sole discretion, result in the potential winner’s disqualification and the selection of a substitute winner by a random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period. 

 

A PARTICIPANT IS NOT A WINNER OF ANY PRIZE UNLESS AND UNTIL SPONSOR HAS COMPLETED ITS VERIFICATION OF PARTICIPANT’S ELIGIBILITY. 

 

A winner may waive the right to receive a prize. Prizes are non-assignable and nontransferable and cannot be redeemed for cash. No substitutions allowed by winner.

Allergy Tips

Indoors 

Mold, pet dander, and dust mites are the most common culprits of fall/winter allergies. In most situations, the key is avoidance. 

Keep Dust-mites away 

Dust mites survive on the skin we shed. So if a dust-mite allergy is the problem, wash your bed sheets weekly in hot water (above 130 degrees) and invest in allergen-reducing mattress covers. 

Mold 

Mold loves moisture, so it grows especially well in damp rooms such as bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry areas. Turn on the exhaust fan when showering or cooking to remove excess humidity and odors. Use a mold/mildew spray to clean moldy areas, including shower curtains, tiles, etc. and Wipe the sink and counter every day to remove puddles of water and moisture. 

Get a dehumidifier 

Dust mites and molds flourish in a humid environment. Keep your indoor humidity level between 30–40 percent with the help of a humidifier or dehumidifier, to help prevent the growth of mold and mites. 

Clean Every Surface 

Wear a mask and gloves when cleaning, vacuuming, or painting to limit dust and chemical exposure. Vacuum twice a week. Clean your carpets with a HEPA vacuum to decrease dust mites and pet allergen levels. Mopping floors is also effective. Scrub refrigerators, sinks, tubs, floors, and garbage cans regularly to keep build-up — and your allergy symptoms — to a minimum. 

Pet Dander 

If pet dander gets you sneezing, ban pets from your bedroom, and keep the door closed. Pet dander can linger in the house for months, triggering symptoms even after the pets no longer live there. 

Never Allow Pets On the Bed. What many people don't know, though, is that allergens around the house and in their bedroom often come from their pets. Pets can bring in mold, dander (little flakes off of their skin and coats), and pollen from outdoors. 

Consider Using Slip Covers 

Use washable slip covers and cushions, and wash in 130-degree hot water once a week. 

Limit Rugs 

Limit throw rugs to reduce dust and mold. If you do have rugs, make sure they are washable. 

Keep Indoor Air Clean 

Keep windows closed to reduce pollen entering the house. Change filters in air conditioning units and vents frequently this time of year. Install high-efficiency furnace filters, which capture 30 times more allergens, and make sure your furnace fan is always on. When changing filters, place used filter in plastic garbage bag, then dispose outdoors to limit accidental “pollen spills” indoors. 

Keep Pollen Under Control 

To tame pollen, wash bedding every week in hot water. Wash your hair and shower before going to bed, since pollen can accumulate in hair. 

Avoid hanging clothes outdoors to dry 

Wet laundry is a magnet for pollen. 

Spray your live Christmas tree with a garden hose before setting it up and remove all dust from your holiday decorations. 

 

Outdoors 

Snuggling by the fireplace or fire pit may not be the best idea. The smoke from wood fires can irritate the nose and lungs in people with allergy. Be sure that when bringing in any firewood into the home that it's been cleaned and checked for mold. 

Perform an indoor and outdoor survey of the house every month to look for visible mold and identify areas at high risk for mold formation, such as a pile of firewood close to the house or an area of the basement with a musty odor. 

Check the Weather 

Tree, grass and ragweed thrive during cool nights and warm days. 

Information about your local pollen level is available on the Internet or in your local paper. If pollen counts are supposed to be particularly high on a given day, you can play it safe by staying inside. In general, pollen counts are highest on warm and breezy mornings and low on cool and rainy days. 

Choose the Right Time of Day 

According to many experts, the time of day you choose to spend time outside matters. Most pollens reach peak levels around noon or early afternoon. 

Change Your Clothes and Shower After Spending Time Outdoors 

During pollen season, your clothing and hair could be covered with pollen. So when you get home, it's not a bad idea to change your clothes and toss them in the laundry. You could also take a shower to rinse off any allergen left on your skin or in your hair. 

Consider a Less Intense Exercise 

Sometimes, opt for less intense activities. If the pollen count or pollution levels are high, skip your usual jog or bike ride and choose a less intense form of exercise. 

 

 

Protect your eyes and lungs 

To block pollen and other irritants from getting into your system during outdoor exercise, some people exercise with a mask or bandanna over their nose and mouth. Another trick is to wear goggles to protect your eyes from irritation from allergens. 

Camping with allergies 

Talk to your doctor a few weeks before your trip. It may be possible that your doctor can temporarily up your dosage or recommend special medications. If your allergies aren’t serious, pack some over-the-counter medicines. If you have severe allergies or asthma, bring a first aid kit with an extra inhaler, epinephrine injectors and anything else you might need in an emergency. Make sure that your fellow campers know about your condition and tell them who to call and what to do if you experience serious symptoms. 

Prepare your body 

Eating a tablespoon of locally grown honey each day may build your body’s tolerance to local pollen and might provide some extra assistance. 

Pick a good camping spot 

Find a grassy spot to set up your tent. If you are allergic to grass, find a cleared area, but avoid stirring up a lot of dirt. 

Check out your campsite for ragweed, poison oak or poison ivy and other plants that may cause allergic reactions. Be sure to bring along ointments and medications just in case. 

One of the best places to camp for people with allergies is an ocean beach, especially when prevailing winds flow onto land, because of the absence of pollen there. 

Campfires can be significant irritants for those with asthma and allergies. When building a fire, make sure that people who have asthma sit farther away and out of the wind so the smoke does not irritate their lungs. It's also a good idea to change your clothes after sitting near the campfire. 

Choose the best time of the year for your allergies 

People with mold allergies may find that they would be more comfortable camping in a dry area in the summer rather than in damp wooded areas in the fall. Tree pollens are worse in the early spring, while grasses are most predominant in the late spring and early summers. Weed pollens take over in late summer and fall. 

Check the forecast for pollen count and ozone levels according to the location where you are camping and schedule your trip while the allergens are lowest. 

Tent preparation 

Try a modern hypoallergenic tent that has reliable flaps. 

Air out your equipment before you leave. Look for mold in tents and tarps, and wash off any you see with a hot water and bleach solution. 

Because pollen counts are highest in the early morning, it might be wise to sleep with the tent doors and windows at least partially closed.
