In the event a minimum of 1,500 balls are NOT sold on or before May 1, 2021, a total refund will be issued to the person or company listed on the registration form for the purchase of all golf balls and sponsorships.

• Purchaser will be notified of their golf ball numbers via email a few days prior to the event.

Ball Certification

• Standard golf balls are comparable weight and size will be numbered from 1 and up

• The golf balls will be audited by a representative from an independent accounting firm to ensure that all balls are present.

• The balls will then be placed in sealed containers and certified by a representative of the independent accounting firm that all balls are present and accounted for.

• The containers holding the golf balls will be stored in a secure location

• Under the observation of security personnel, the golf balls from the sealed containers will be transferred into transport containers.

• The helicopter will then proceed to take off and approach the drop zone where it will hover. The balls will then be released over the target (golf pin).

• Once all balls have been dropped, determination of the winners will take place.

• The event will be streamed live on a BGCCG social media account.

Winner Identification

• A member of the BGCCG Administrative team will maintain a master list of balls purchased, the ticket’s assigned owner and contact information at all times.

• A pre-determined staff member from BGCCG Administrative team will be in-charge of measuring the balls that land closest to the target along with the ball that is farthest away.

• The BGCCG Administrative team member, under the direct observation of the President & CEO of BGCCG, will approach the drop zone for the purpose of determining the winners.

• The aforementioned observers will determine the grand prize-winning ball based on which ball has landed closest to the designated target (flag pin) and then the next winning ball and so forth until all winning balls have been determined.

• In the event of a tie, winners will split the two prizes that would have been won based on their position. For example, if the two balls closest to the target are equal distance away, winners would split the first and second place prizes.

• The BGCCG Administrative team, along with the President & CEO of BGCCG, will certify all winning balls by signing a “Statement of Certification.”
