    5. THE PRIZE AND APPROXIMATE RETAIL VALUE:
    There will be one (1) prize available to be won, consisting of a dinner as described herein (the “Feast in the Field Dinner”) held at a rural-based location in proximity to the confirmed winner’s residence, which is mutually agreed upon by the Sponsor and the confirmed prize winner (the “Prize”).
