Contest Rules





These rules relate to a promotional contest (the “’Cuda Giveaway Draw”) which is being conducted by Dryco Building Supplies Inc. (“Dryco”) to celebrate our 50th anniversary of commencing business. The customer service mailing address to which all correspondence to Dryco is to be sent is 5955 – 205A Street, Langley, British Columbia, V3A 8C4 (the “Head Office Address”) and the internet website for Dryco is (the “Website”). These rules are in addition to any standard contest rules that may be linked in the Website from time to time, and in the event of any conflict between these rules and the standard rules linked in the Website, these rules will govern with respect to the ‘Cuda Giveaway Draw.


The ‘Cuda Giveaway Draw is not a lottery, which requires payment and is awarded solely on the basis of luck. Rather, this is a promotional contest which combines elements of luck and skill, and does not require payment to enter. The ‘Cuda Giveaway Draw is void where prohibited by law, and is subject to all local laws and regulations.



Eligible Participants (as defined under “Eligibility” below) may submit entries in one of the following ways:

  • (a) Eligible Participants who make Qualifying Purchases (as defined below in this section) will have an entry automatically submitted to the ‘Cuda Giveaway Draw for every $5,000 in Qualifying Purchases made during the period from 12:01 AM (Pacific time) on January 1, 2023 to 12:59 PM (Pacific time) on December 31, 2023. Where more than $5,000 in Qualifying Purchases are made during that period, one entry will be automatically submitted for each $5,000 of total Qualifying Purchases. The number of entries which each Eligible Participant is entitled to have submitted based upon their Qualifying Purchases will be calculated as soon as reasonably practicable after December 31, 2023; and/or

  • (b) alternatively, Eligible Participants may submit an entry free of charge by handwriting a minimum 100 word essay which includes the full name and mailing address of the Eligible Participant, confirms their status as an Eligible Participant and describes Dryco and the goods and services that we offer, and mailing that entry by prepaid mail to the Head Office Address. Mailed entries must be handwritten “wet ink” originals and no photocopies or electronically produced or reproduced entries will be accepted. Official registration of a qualifying handwritten entry will occur when the entry is received by Dryco prior to 12:59 PM (Pacific time) on December 31, 2023, approved by Dryco as complete and complying with these rules, and entered into Dryco’s database. Dryco is not responsible for lost, late, misdirected, damaged, illegible or postage due mail or other invalid, unsuccessful or incomplete submissions.

Each entry will be assigned an individual identifying number and those numbers will be recorded in a database established by Dryco. The potential winning entry will be selected using a random number generation program to select the entry from that database – see below under “Method of Award”.

“Qualifying Purchases” are fully-paid purchases from Dryco during the period identified above of drywall and other building supplies supplied by Dryco where the customer is the consumer or installer of the drywall or building supplies (and for clarity, products purchased from Dryco which are intended for resale by the purchaser will not be considered to be Qualifying Purchases), and the value of a Qualifying Purchase is net of all taxes, discounts and credits. No purchase by a customer will be considered to be a Qualifying Purchase if that customer’s account with Dryco is in default or in arrears as at 12:59 PM (Pacific time) on December 31, 2023.


The odds of a particular entry being drawn as the potential winning entry will depend on the total number of entries which have been submitted by Eligible Participants (or to which Eligible Participants have become entitled by virtue of Qualifying Purchases) by the entry Deadline (see “Method of Award” and “Deadline”). Dryco will accept as many entries as are validly submitted or to which Eligible Participants have become entitled by virtue of Qualifying Purchases by the entry Deadline.


To be an “Eligible Participant” an entrant must:

  • (a) be a company duly registered to carry on business in British Columbia, Alberta, or Saskatchewan; or

  • (b) be an individual over the age of 19, who is resident in in British Columbia, Alberta, or Saskatchewan; and

  • (c) not be an employee or officer of Dryco, or any related company, nor a member of the immediate family of any such employee.

For clarity, no company incorporated in, or individual resident in, the Province of Quebec will be an Eligible Participant, and the ‘Cuda Giveaway Draw is not being offered in the Province of Quebec.

Entries may not be given or sold to anyone else, and Dryco reserves the right to refuse to accept the registration of an entry if Dryco considers the entry to have been submitted by an ineligible person or through any mechanical, electronic or other automated means of submission.


The grand prize in the ‘Cuda Giveaway Draw is a 1973 Plymouth Barracuda automobile, vehicle identification number BS23H3B389499 (the “’Cuda”). The ‘Cuda will be delivered to the winner at the Head Office Address and the winner is responsible for (i) all transfer fees, taxes and other costs of transferring title to the ’Cuda into the winner’s name; (ii) insurance; and (iii) all costs of driving or transporting the ‘Cuda to the winner’s address. Dryco will not be responsible for the winner’s costs associated with travel to or from the Head Office Address.

The ’Cuda will be awarded in an “as is, where is” condition and Dryco makes no representation or warranty regarding its mechanical condition, operation or safety. In particular and without limitation, the winner will assume all responsibility and liability for any and all use and operation of the ‘Cuda once it has been delivered to the winner.


The winner of the ‘Cuda Giveaway Draw will be determined in the following manner: each eligible entry in the ‘Cuda Giveaway Draw will be assigned a separate number and those numbers will be entered into a database maintained by Dryco; within a reasonable period of time after the Deadline (see “Deadline” below) a random number generation program will be employed to randomly select one of the numbers from the database; the potential winning entry will be the entry which corresponds to the number so randomly selected. If the Eligible Participant whose entry is so selected as the potential winning entry fulfills the Winning Conditions (see below), they will be declared the winner of the ‘Cuda. If the Eligible Participant whose entry is so selected fails to fulfill the Winning Conditions within a period of sixty (60) days of their being notified by regular mail of the selection of their entry, their entry will be disqualified and the random number generation program will be employed to select another potential winning entry. This process will be repeated until a winner of the ‘Cuda is declared. An Eligible Participant whose entry is selected must comply with the following conditions in order to be declared the winner of the ‘Cuda (the “Winning Conditions”): they must correctly answer a skill-testing question, complete and sign Dryco’s release and consent form which, among other things, includes permission for the use by Dryco and its affiliates of the winner’s name and likeness in any future promotional materials as Dryco or its affiliates may determine, and they must have complied with all of these ‘Cuda Giveaway Draw rules. Skill-testing questions will be administered over the telephone or by mail, and where an Eligible Participant is a company the Eligible Participant may designate a director or officer to answer the skill-testing question on its behalf. Where an Eligible Participant is an individual they must personally answer the skill-testing question, and answers by relatives, executors or other representatives are not valid and will be disqualified. The name of the winner, once determined, will be published on the Website or may be obtained by writing to Dryco at the Head Office Address. All questions as to the eligibility of any entry and the selection of any winner will be determined by Dryco, acting reasonably, whose decision will be final.


The deadline by which entries must be either received at the Head Office Address or to which Eligible Participants must have become entitled by virtue of Qualifying Purchases is 12:59 PM (Pacific time) on December 31, 2023 (the “Deadline”).


By submitting an entry (or having an entry automatically submitted on their behalf), all Eligible Participants will be considered to have consented to the collection, use and disclosure by Dryco (and its affiliated companies) of all information concerning the Eligible Participant that is provided in the entry form or collected by Dryco in relation to the Qualifying Purchase. Dryco and its affiliates have the right to collect, use and disclose information regarding Eligible Participants in any way permitted by law, and Eligible Participants will be deemed to have consented to their names and addresses being added to Dryco’s mailing list and to receiving promotional material from Dryco from time to time. If an Eligible Participant wishes to revoke this consent they must send written notice to that effect to Dryco at the Head Office Address, or by using such on-line opt out procedure as may be provided for in the Website from time to time. Full details of Dryco’s privacy policies and rights with respect to the collection, use and disclosure of personal information are available on the Website.
