Only one Entry per person or team is allowed.
The team must have a minimum of one person and a maximum of five people.
The value of the Prize may be taxable to the Winner as income. All federal, state, and local tax liability, and any other costs and expenses associated with acceptance or use of the Prize not specifically provided for in these Guidelines are solely the Winner’s responsibility.
