10. The actual event procedure works as follows. The first 10 prizes will be determined by the first 10 "live balls" that are picked. A "live ball" is one that has been rented by a contest participant and has a number on the bottom of the ball that corresponds with a number on the randomized spread sheet. We will keep removing balls from the bin until the first 10 winners are determined. The remaining winners of over 50 prizes can be picked, at random, and placed into a "prize winner basket" from which winners are picked until all of the prize winners are determined. The prizes are grouped by value and awarded in order as balls are picked from the "prize winner basket."

Entrants and other participants hereby release the Presenter, its sponsors, supporters, employees, volunteers and the various organizations involved in the presentation and completion of the race from liability with respect to the prizes.
