No Purchase Necessary: To obtain one (1) Entry in the Contest without making an Eligible Purchase, print your first name, last name, email address, telephone number, complete mailing address (including postal code), age and signature on a plain white piece of paper and mail it (in an envelope with sufficient Canadian postage) along with a fifty (50) word or more unique and original sentence (the “Sentence”) on How New Honda Power Equipment Can Make Your Life Better to: CRM - 2016 Power Event Contest, 180 Honda Blvd. Markham, Ontario L6C 0H9 (the “Request”). Upon receipt of your Request in accordance with these Official Rules and Regulations (the “Rules”), you will receive one (1) Entry in the Contest. To be eligible, your Request must be received separately in an envelope bearing sufficient Canadian postage (i.e. multiple Requests in the same envelope will be void). To be eligible for the Grand Prize (as defined below), your Request must be post-marked during the Contest Period and received by no later than the Draw Date (as defined below).
The Contest Parties and each of their respective officers, directors, employees, agents, representatives, successors and assigns (collectively, the “Released Parties”) are not responsible for, and accept no liability whatsoever in relation to any late, lost, misdirected, delayed, incomplete or incompatible Entries or Requests (all of which are void).
There is a limit of one (1) Entry per person, regardless of: (i) the method of entry; (ii) how many Requests you send; (iii) how many Eligible Purchases you make; and (iv) how many new and not previously registered Honda Power Equipment products are included in your Eligible Purchase.

Failure to provide such proof to the complete satisfaction of the Sponsor within the timeline specified by the Sponsor may result in disqualification in the sole and absolute discretion of the Sponsor. The sole determinant of the time for the purposes of this Contest will be the official time-keeping device(s) used by the Sponsor.
