Detroit Sports 105.1 General Contest Rules


Prizes: WMGC-FM reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to substitute any prize for one of comparable or greater value. Winners may not request prize substitution. Prizes are non-transferable and may not be claimed or used by any person other than the winner. Winners must claim their prize in person at the WMGC-FM office located at One Radio Plaza, Detroit, MI 48220, during normal business hours of Monday through Friday, 8:30am to 5:30pm (excluding holidays) unless alternate arrangements have been made through WMGC-FM Promotions Department. Unless otherwise stated in the rules for the specific contest, winners have thirty (30) days to pick up their prize from the date winner is notified of its availability. Failure to pick up their prize within the required timeframe will result in forfeiture of said prize.
