Agreement to Official Rules
Entry into the Contest constitutes the participant's agreement to and full acceptance of the Official Rules of the Contest. Winning the Prize is contingent upon compliance with the Official Rules of the Contest. These Official Rules constitute the binding rules of the Contest and supersede and are not modified by any other information in the above summary or in the downloadable Bracket, or any other location, file, webpage, social media post, email message, or other place pertaining to the Contest.
The Championship Period runs from March 13th, 2022 at 12:01 AM US Central Time through April 4th, 2022 at 11:59 PM US Central Time. Entries must be submitted before the end of the Championship Period to qualify.
Entries will be accepted via email to the DG Pilot email account (firstname.lastname@example.org). Entries must have the email subject line: "Model Madness 2022 Entry". Entries may only be submitted in the form of a completed downloadable championship bracket (the "Bracket"). Entries may be submitted as either an attached form-filled PDF file Bracket or an attached digital photograph of a legibly completed Bracket. Entries will not be accepted by physical mail, telephone, or in-person delivery. A completed Bracket must be completely filled out, with a prediction written for each place on the Bracket. Incomplete Brackets will be disqualified. There is a limit of one (1) entry per person, regardless of the method or form of entry. Entrants submitting more than one entry, whether from a single email address or multiple email addresses, will be disqualified.
The Contest takes place in the form of a mock championship tournament. Outcomes will be determined after the end of the Championship Period. The outcome of each matchup between two aircraft types on the Bracket (a "Game") will be determined by total DG Pilot sales amounts of all models of aircraft of that type or set of types in any scale during the Championship Period. Sales figures accumulated for models sold include the following manufacturers: Aeroclassics, Daron WWT, GeminiJets, Herpa Wings, Inflight200, JC Wings, NG Models, and Phoenix Models. No match or sporting event is actually played to determine the outcome of a Game. Ties in sales totals during the Championship Period will be resolved by total sales figures over the 12 months preceding the beginning of the Championship Period. Ties in total sales figures over the preceding 12 months will be resolved with a coin flip. Sales totals include special orders and pre-orders. The set of the outcomes of all Games as listed on the Bracket constitutes the championship outcome (the "Results").
Scoring will take place after the end of the Championship Period. All entries will be scored against the Results. Entries earn points for correctly predicting the outcome of each Game. The set of all Games at the same level of the Bracket constitutes a Round. Entries are awarded increasing numbers of points for Games in each successive round: one (1) point for a Game in the Soaring Sixteen round, two (2) points for a Game in the Elevated Eight round, three (3) points for a Game in the Flying Four round, four (4) points for a Game in the Semifinals round, and five (5) points for the Game in the Championship round. The aircraft type of the outcome of the Game in the Championship round is the Champion. The Bracket with the greatest total points awarded is the Winning Entry, unless a tie occurs. In the event of multiple Brackets with an equal score, the Bracket which predicted the Champion to have progressed the furthest through the rounds of the Bracket is the Winning Entry, unless a tie occurs. In the event of another tie, the Winning Entry will be chosen through random drawing between the tied entries. The submitter of the Winning Entry is the Winner. The Winner will be notified at the email address used to submit his or her entry.
The Winner will receive a $50.00 USD DG Pilot gift card in digital format via email. The Prize can be used as a payment method for a purchase on the DG Pilot store website (dgpilot.com) or in-store at the DG Pilot retail storefront, located at: 406A St. Peter St, Saint Paul, MN 55117. The Prize is subject to all terms and conditions that bind gift cards issued by DG Pilot.

DG Pilot reserves the right to disqualify any individual who, in its sole discretion, it finds to be interfering with the entry process or any other part of the Contest or to be acting in violation of these Official Rules or acting in a disruptive manner or with poor sportsmanship to the spirit of the contest. Failure of DG Pilot to enforce any part of these Official Rules does not constitute a waiver of that or any other part of the Official Rules.
