O. Box 933, Southport, CT 06890. VT residents may omit return postage.

Limit one (1) free game piece request per outer stamped mailing envelope. Sponsor and Administrator are not responsible for lost, late, misdirected, illegible, incomplete, damaged, postage due or mutilated mail. Odds of having a prize "Winner" notification are 1:80,000.
  5. Claims: If your game piece says: "Winner" you must mail your game piece, together with a 3" X 5" paper on which you have printed your complete name, address (including zip code) and daytime phone number, in a stamped envelope to the Administrator at the following address: Kauai Coffee "$25,000 Island Adventure" Game, P.

No responsibility is assumed for printing, distribution or production errors or lost, late, postage due or misdirected mail. Proof of mailing does not constitute proof of delivery.
