Free meals for a year- or at least once a week. That's the prize for the first 100 people in line at the new Chick-fil-A in Moline.

People started arriving around 5:30 a.m. on Wednesday, September 21st, 2016 to get their spot in line for the grand opening, even though the store won't open until 6:00 a.m. on Thursday. People brought tents and tables, ready to endure the long wait and the weather, all while having a little fun in the process.

"Oh yeah, I'm meeting people. We're playing chess over here. There's only 12 of us right now so we're just hanging out and getting to know each other. It's kind of fun," Clif Mills said.

There is a stipulation to the "Free Food for a Year" event at the Chick-fil-A in Moline. The first 100 people in line can get the #1 combo meal 52 times, or once a week.

Will you be standing in line trying to get the free food?
