Hands on the Bull Contest

*The contest begins March 1st and ends when all bulls are found.  The first free burger day for winners is April 1st or the first day in April BCBB is open.  The last day of free burgers is the first Monday in March the following year.  Must be 18 years or older to claim a prize.  IDs will be checked.  Bring your ID. One Golden Bull winner per person and per family.  If you find a Golden Bull redeem it in person at Bull City Burger and Brewery during regular business hours .  Please email us to let us know you are coming in at (moocow[at]bullcityburgerandbrewery[dot]com).  Winners receive one hamburger or veggie burger per week with one $1 topping, one regular dirty fry order and one non-alcohol beverage of choice.  No substitutions for specialty burgers or special features.  Can’t be used toward a specialty burger.  No alcohol included. A week is defined as any hours BCBB is open for business Sunday through Saturday.  BCBB cannot be held accountable for acts of God, weather, and business interruptions during any week.  Only one free burger meal can be claimed per week.  Cannot be used online.  Multiple burgers cannot be saved up for redemption in one week.  Only the person claiming the Golden Bull can receive the free burger each week. No family members, spouses, former spouses, children, cousins (kissing or otherwise) can claim your prize.   Winners consent to the use of their names and photos or likeness by BCBB to promote the contest on the website, in the restaurant and in print.  Again, we will check your ID.  No employee of BCBB can win.  No employee of a business we partner with for the Golden Bull can win.  One winner per family please.  No repeat winners.  No scammers, no loophole finders, no twisters of the rules.  It’s free burgers for about a year, that’s pretty good. That’s our fine print.

The Official “Hands on the Bull” Competition

By signing below I indicate that I have read the following rules and agree to abide by them during the Golden Bull Contest that begins on Saturday March 29, 2014 at 8:00 AM. The contest ends at 11 PM that day.

This contest will take place at the Bull Sculpture know as “Major” (and referred to as Major throughout the remainder of this document) at the corner of W. Parrish Street and Corcoran. It is open to the first 30 contestants to sign up and sign a waiver at Bull City Burger and Brewery at 107 E. Parrish Street, Durham, NC 27701. 

Sign up and waiver signing begins at 11:11 AM on Monday March 24, 2014.  You must arrive in person with a valid ID to sign up and bring your ID on Saturday March 29th.

Contestants are required to keep one of their hands on “Major” throughout their participation in the event. They may switch hands by putting both hands on Major at the same time and then removing one. Except for a few seconds to switch hands when there will be two hands on the bull, only one hand may be on the bull at any time. The contestant is immediately disqualified if there is any moment when their hand is not in contact with “Major”, unless it is at an agreed upon break.

Contestants should plan to arrive at the corner of Corcoran and W. Parrish, ie. at Major, no later than 7:30 AM on Saturday March 29, 2014. The contest will begin at exactly 8:00 AM. Anyone who is not able to be registered and ready to go by 8:00 AM will be disqualified.

All contestants will be given 1 bathroom ticket prior to the start of the event. There will be Port-a-Potty on site and each contestant may take one five-minute bathroom break during the duration of the event at a time decided on by the contestant. The contestant will notify the judge of their intent to use their bathroom ticket and the judge will allow that individual to remove their hand from Major and will time the bathroom break. If the break runs longer than 5 minutes the contestant will be disqualified. It will be up to the contestant to schedule his or her break when the Port-a-let is vacant.

Contestants are required to drink one bottle of water at the top of the hour starting at 9 AM. We provide the bottled water and you must consume the entire water within 10 minutes. Any spilled water means you start with a new fresh bottle.

Contestants are encouraged to secure sponsors for charitable donations to support their cause and to cheer them on. Costumes, wigs, and family appropriate attire are welcome. The most outlandish, yet tasteful costume as voted by the crowd by 2 PM will receive an bonus 5 minute bathroom break. Voting will be done by a collection of cash for the charity. Donations will be accepted the day of the event at the location of the event until 2 PM.

There will be no leaning and no sitting. Contestants must be standing with their arm extended at all times.

Contestants will be given a light breakfast of Monuts Donuts. Contestants will also receive burgers/veggie burgers and dirty fries for lunch. Bottled water will be available on demand throughout the day. Contestants may bring their own food and drinks but will not be able to receive any outside help to consume their food and drinks, ie. you need to be able to open, or un-wrap what you bring by yourself with one hand unless you do it on your break.

Contestants should bring their own sunscreen if needed/wanted and dress appropriately for the weather.

Contestants may not receive outside help in any way, including but not limited to opening food or drinks, scratching an itch, massages, foot rubs, or any such thing.

Contestants agree to not cheat, to not use performance enhancing drugs, no blood doping or steroid use allowed, no adult Oopsy-Daisy underwear (no Depends), no catheters - you get the picture. Contestants may be required to prove they are not wearing/using such devices. If you are caught cheating in any way you will be disqualified.

No one may urinate or do anything else in your pants. If you pee in your pants you will be disqualified.

If after the event concludes it is determined that the winner has cheated, he or she will be striped of the title “Golden Bull Winner” and they will forfeit all the winnings and glory associated with the title.

The contestants agree to allow Bull City Burger and Brewery to use their picture or likeness and their name in publicity for and about the event.

All contestants must be 18+ to enter and must sign this waiver.

The last contestant who has his/her hand on the bull will be the winner and earns Golden Bull #5 of 2014

In the unlikely event that more than one person is still standing with one hand on the bull at 11 PM on Saturday March 29th, a tie will be declared and we will have a tie-breaking competition which includes a physical challenge and a trivia challenge.

This event will go on rain or shine, cold or hot, and weather cannot be controlled by BCBB to make things any easier.

I have read the above outlined rules and regulations and agree to abide by them. I will not hold BCBB accountable or sue BCBB or any of its employees for any side effects, delusions or fainting, sudden illness, tiredness, soreness, adverse health effects or general or specific pain from participating in this contest. I enter this contest at my own risk.

BCBB reserves the right to cancel this contest at anytime prior to 8 AM March 29, 2014 and you will be notified.
