Only participants who have filled in all required fields will be eligible.  The contest runs February 27 to March 2, 2022  (the “Contest Period). Only one entry per person will be accepted for the duration of the Contest Period. DOVETAIL COMMUNICATIONS INC (the “Contest Promoter”) does not accept entries for this contest by phone, fax, courier, mail or email.


Grand prize: There is one grand prize to win.  The grand prize is a YETI ROADIE HARD COOLER as selected by DOVETAIL COMMUNICATIONS INC.   The chosen participant will not receive the difference in cash between the approximate value and the real value.  Chances to win will depend on the number of valid entries received.

Limitation. There is a limit of one (1) prize per person.

The following conditions and restrictions apply to the grand prize:

The winner must be nineteen (19) years of age or over.

The winner must respect all the instructions given by the promoter, or they may be declared forfeit from declaring the prize or continuing to benefit from it.

The promoter shall not be responsible for weather conditions, cancellations or other factors that cannot be reasonably controlled by the promoter that prevent the prize from being used.  If such be the case, the winner shall not have the right to a replacement prize or the equivalent in cash.

The winner cannot choose to take the $350 cash value of the prize instead of the prize.

DOVETAIL COMMUNICATIONS INC. reserves the right to substitute all prize(s) with a prize of equivalent value and/or to terminate or withdraw this contest at any time. The decisions of the contest judges are final.


To be eligible, interactive entries must be received on the closing day of contest March 2, 2022 at about 8:00 pm EST.  This contest is open to all residents of Canada (excluding Quebec), excluding employees of the Contest promoter and members of their respective immediate families and any person domiciled with any of the above.

Grand Prize Draw:  On or around March 2, 2022 at about 8:00 pm EST at the CIM Magazine booth at the 2022 SME Annual Conference & EXPO an eligible entry will be drawn haphazardly among all the eligible entries registered throughout the contest period.  The chosen participant will be notified by telephone or email. The chosen participant must correctly answer a mathematical question asked by telephone by a DOVETAIL COMMUNICATIONS INC. representative without use of any aid, in particular of a mechanical nature, to be declared the winner.  If any of the conditions set forth in these rules are not respected, or if it is impossible to contact the chosen participant in the five business days following the draw, or if the chosen participant refuses the prize, then the person will be disqualified and will lose the prize and a second draw will take place so that the prize will be awarded to another participant in accordance with the present rules up until a participant is chosen and declared winner.  In the event that no participant is declared winner in the sixty (60) days following the original daw, the promoter may, at its discretion, cancel the prize. Chances to win will depend on the number of valid entries received.

In the two (2) to four (4) weeks following the time a person chosen for the prize is declared winner, the promoter will contact the person who won a prize to inform them of the conditions for claiming their prize.


Chosen participants must sign a statement agreeing to conform to contest rules and an exclusion of liability freeing the promoter, its publicity agencies, the contest supervision agency, events, members from aforementioned groups, and all their administrators, directors, owners, partners, employees, agents, representatives, successors and those with respective rights (collectively known as “exclusion of liability beneficiaries”) from all responsibility for all damage arising from the present contest,  contest participation or tentative participation, or from the use or acceptance of a prize in order to be declared winner. Statements and exclusion of liability documents must be received by the promoter in the ten (10) business days following the date indicated on the documents or the chosen participants will be disqualified and will lose their right to the prize, and prizes will be granted to participants whose registration will be drawn haphazardly among valid registrations received in accordance with these rules.

THE PARTICIPANT OR ANY OTHER PERSON WHO DELIBERATELY TRIES TO DAMAGE AN INTERNET SITE OR INTERFERE WITH THE LEGITAMATE OPERATION OF THE CONTEST COMMITS A CRIMINAL OFFENCE AND MISDEMEANOUR, AND THE PROMOTER RESERVES THE RIGHT, IN SUCH A CASE, TO DEMAND FROM THIS PERSON ALL DAMAGES PERMITTED BY LAW.


Disqualification. The promoter reserves the right to disqualify a person or cancel one or more registrations of a person who participates or tries to participate in the present contest by using a means that goes against the present rules or in such a way that is unfair towards other participants (ex: request for participation without purchase beyond the limit allowed).  This person may be referred to legal authorities with jurisdiction.
