You must be present at the DJJD Committee meeting the Tuesday Sept 3rd 2013 at 7pm at Jesse James Lanes to receive your check.
- There is no cost for this event and it is not a button event (although you do need to register a button to claim the FULL prize).
- If you win, you must agree to be publicly named along with the possibility of an on-air radio interview, your photo and name(s) on various local websites and a picture and write up in the paper.
- If the horseshoe goes un-found by 5pm on Tuesday September 2nd 2014, the hunt will officially end for the year.
