Guidelines & Official Rules
Here’s how the passport works:
Live Local Fallon Passport Page Entries will be accepted November 6, 2015 to June 30, 2016. Monthly drawings will be held for all correctly completed Page Entries turned in by the end of each month. Complete as many Page Entries as you can. All Page Entries are good for the grand prize drawings.
Collect stamps at participating events and businesses around town.
A completed Page Entry requires 5 “Eat” and 10 “Shop” stamps or a large purchase over $250.
- Eat: Collect “Eat” stamps by dining at participating restaurants. You need five stamps per Page Entry. Spend $7 or more and receive a stamp. Limit 2 stamps per visit.
- Shop: Making local purchases earns “Shop” stamps. You need 10 stamps per Page Entry. Spend $10 or more to receive a stamp. Limit 2 stamps per visit.
- Bonus: Earn bonus Page Entries for large purchases. A $250-or-more purchase completes a Page Entry immediately:
$250-$499 completes a Page Entry and earns 3 bonus Page Entries;
$500-$749 completes a Page Entry and earns 5 bonus Page Entries;
$750-$999 completes a Page Entry and earns 7 bonus Page Entries;
$1,000 or more completes a Page Entry and earns 10 bonus Page Entries.
Submit your Page Entry with the bonus stamp and we will create for you the bonus Page Entries for that month’s drawing.
- Wildcard: Earn a “Wildcard Play” stamp that can substitute for any required “Shop” or “Eat” stamp by attending a community event that will be identified on our site or promoted in the media as a “Live Local” event. Attending a “Live Local” event and/or obtaining a “Wildcard Play” stamp is not required to complete a Page Entry.
Tear out a completed Page Entry and drop it by the Fallon Convention Center or put a postage stamp on it and drop it in the mail. Each correctly completed Page Entry submitted by the end of the month is eligible for that month’s drawing. Monthly drawings will be held the following month.
In July, the City will host a Grand Prize Drawing/Live Local Fallon Finale for all residents and draw from all correctly completed passport Page Entries for grand prizes.
Now go have fun in the community and remember to bring your passport. Great prizes await!
