Mechanics of the Book Grab Event

1. The Atrium of Fully Booked Bonifacio High Street will be the main venue for the Book Grab race proper.

2. The starting line will be at the main entrance of the store. Once the go signal is given during the race, contestants will start from the entrance and race towards the Atrium to grab as many books as they can.

3. Contestants will be given only two (2) minutes.

4. Each contestant will be assigned a station where they will check in their grabbed books. Contestants can only check-in at their assigned station.

5. Contestants may either use their hands in carrying the books, or use the cart. If they decide to use the cart, they must empty it out on their assigned station.

6. Books that do not reach the assigned station once the time is up will no longer be considered.

7. Penalties are as follows:
1. In the event that a contestant grabs a book from a pile/shelf that is not part of the Book Grab area, he/she will be penalized by way of subtracting two books from his/her pile for every one (1) wrong book taken off the unauthorized shelf/shelves.A total of 3 books will be returned: the unauthorized book, plus two penalty books. The contestant chooses which books shall be removed.

2. In the event that a contestant fails to empty out the cart in his/her assigned station, the books inside the cart will not be counted.

3. Books that are dropped will no longer be considered. Contestants may not pick them up again.

8. Once the time is up, the Fully Booked staff shall proceed in counting the books.

9. The host will make the announcement for top grabber

10. The top grabber will be the contestant with the most number of points. Points will be counted after the penalties have been deducted.
1. One book = 1 point
2. An additional bonus point will be given for every book with a special sticker on the cover.

11. All contestants of the race get to keep their books.

12. On top of the books, the Top Grabber gets to take home special prizes from sponsors.

Personal Note: I really like to participate in this contest but I am still thinking if I will join. You must be present on the day of the race and, I don't think I will be available that day.

The good thing is that you can grab as many books as you want, so it's really up to you to maximize your gains. You can submit your entry online. Deadline for submitting your entry is on July 15, 2010.
