All press/articles received are considered for use in our newsletter, website, online magazine, and/or print magazine on a first-come, first-serve basis with preference given to current advertisers.

Great Lakes Scuttlebutt is committed to providing a resource to the Great Lakes boater and sometimes we feel it is best that you (our fans) have a chance to experience these resources yourselves!

Should you be the randomly-selected winner, we will contact you with information on how to claim your prize at the email address or phone number you provided. We allow for 2-3 days for a response before we select a new winner. All prizes are shipped at no expense to you and with no further obligation. However, we always ask that you send in a photo of yourself/family with your prize to add to our Winner's Gallery. This isn't required - but it sure is fun!
