Can I play the game(s) multiple times? Can I receive prizes a second time?

Can my minor children visit participating locations with me?

PAPER PASSPORTS

Is there a paper passport version of the Eugene Tasting Trails available?

Yes. Previous versions of the paper passports are still valid, and you can still use them to play. However; paper passports may not have a complete list of the current participating breweries, cideries, distilleries and wineries. Paper passports are available of the Eugene Ale Trail, Eugene Distillery Trail and Pinot Bingo at the Eugene, Cascades & Coast Visitors Centers in Springfield (3312 Gateway St) and Eugene (754 Olive St).

Do all the breweries, cideries, distilleries, wineries and tasting rooms listed still stamp?

Yes. You can find the current list of participating businesses on the Eugene Tasting Trails app.

I earned paper passport stamps for locations that are no longer participating on the app. Will those stamps still count towards prize redemption?

There have been a few instances of businesses closing or choosing not to continue participating in the programs. If you have an older paper version of the passport, we will still honor any stamps earned prior to program changes. For instructions on how to receive credit, please contact 541.484.5307.

Can I combine my paper stamps with my app stamps?

Yes.

Take a photo of the specific locations you already have stamped on your paper passport. Then, enter the app and select the business listing you already have stamped under the appropriate trail.

Under the location you would like to transfer to the app, choose “Check-In” and select “Transfer Stamps". Transfer previous paper passport stamps into the app by submitting a photo of each stamp. No other images will be accepted. For Pinot Bingo stamps, submit a photo of your entire Pinot Bingo card for each winery. No other images will be accepted. Verification may take up to seven days. 

Please keep your paper passport until stamps have been verified. Additional verification may be required.

The business didn't have any more printed passports, so I had them stamp a napkin. Does that count?

Unfortunately, no. Stamps must be loaded into the app or must be placed on the paper passport. Please let us know if you discover a location that has run out of paper passports so that we may provide them with more printed passports while supplies last.

I went to a participating business, have a receipt to prove it but forgot to get stamped. Can you stamp it for me at the Adventure Center?

No, we do not have the stamps. You must get your passport stamped on-site at the participating location.

Can I present a photocopy of my passport?

No, it must be the original.

Can I keep my paper passport after its redeemed?

Yes, we will stamp it, copy it and return the original to you as a keepsake.
