Give Grand Marais the Bird

A fake seagull perched on a billboard outside the town of Grand Marais, Minnesota recently went missing. Residents suspect it was stolen, and they want it back. So the town has organized a "give us the bird" campaign, in which they're offering a free vacation in Grand Marais in return for information leading to the safe return of the seagull. The best story wins. A strict adherence to the truth, in this case, would seem to be irrelevant. [upi.com]

I'm confused-- Does the winner get a vacation in Grand Marais, Minnesota, or is that what the loser gets?

OK, the winner gets a free vacation in Grand Marais, Minnesota sometime between Thanksgiving and New Years Day and the loser stays in Phoenix Arizona sometime from the middle of July to the middle of August, in a ouo tent and must wear a fur coat and long johns the entire time.
