Sponsors are not responsible for and shall not be liable for late, lost, misdirected or unsuccessful efforts to notify any prize winner. Each prize winner is responsible for reporting and payment of all taxes, fees, surcharges and any other expenses not specified in these Official Rules. If a prize is declined or undeliverable, the winner will be disqualified and the prize will be awarded to person finishing with the next highest scoring.
