The closest guess following the plow drop will win a Christmas Stocking worth over one thousand dollars that is filled with:

$400 in home heating oil from Savage Oil
$250 dollar gift certificate toward a Heat Pump or Cleaning from Valley River Heat Pumps
$250 dollar gift certificate from Fraser’s Pro Home Centres
$250 gift certificate toward winter passenger tires from Valley Tire

Listeners must submit in their guess the day and exact time, including hours, minutes, and seconds. The lucky listener whose guess following the plow drop that is the closest will win the prize as described. Prizes must be accepted as awarded, no cash value. Home heating oil will only be delivered within the regular distribution area of Sullivan Fuels, may be gifted to a friend or relative.

NEW THIS YEAR. If the plow has not been dropped by 8am December 20th the winner will be randomly chosen from all the valid entries received before 8am December 19th, this include all the past entries that would not have won. The last valid time that may be entered for the plow to drop would be 7:59am and 59 seconds on December 20th, done so 24 hours in advance.

– When the plow drops, will be determined by JM MacDonald Construction based on when they deem it necessary to do so.

– Guesses submitted must be at least 24 hours into the future.

– One guess per IP address per day. Basically one guess per household per day.

– Cannot guess multiple times for the same date.

– Each guess must include a specific day, specific time, down to the second.
*Please note that it’s in 24 hour time, no AM or PM required.

(example: if someone guessed 8:58a.m. and someone else guessed 9:02a.m., and the plow dropped at 9:00a.m., the person who guessed 9:02a.m. would be the winner).

– In case of a tie, the entry that was received first will be the winner.
