Unless restricted by law, Selected Entrants will be required to complete and return the Release within the time period specified therein. An alternate selected entrant will be randomly selected from among the remaining eligible entries if a selected entrant (i) cannot be reached, (ii) fails to obtain all signatures on the Release and to return the documents within the time frame specified therein, as required pursuant to these Official Rules, or (iii) cannot accept or receive the prize for any reason.

The exact timing and date of both the drawing and the Prize event are subject to change at the discretion of the Sponsor. If, after communicating scheduling needs with IFYC staff, the Sponsor is unable to find a suitable time for all Selected Entrants to participate in the Prize event, Selected Entrants who are unavailable for the chosen time and date of the Prize will forfeit the Prize.
