Chosen and approved Adventure Trip must be completed by 12/31/18; if not completed by this date, Adventure Trip element of Grand Prize will be forfeited and the Sweepstakes Entities shall not have any liability of any kind beyond award of the Ford F-Series pickup truck.  Adventure Trips include professional guide of Sponsor’s sole choosing and equipment rental (specific equipment to be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion). IT IS THE SOLE RESPONSIBILITY OF WINNER TO ABIDE BY AND FULLY COMPLY WITH ANY AND ALL APPLICABLE STATE, FEDERAL AND OTHER LAWS GOVERNING PARTICIPATION IN APPLICABLE ADVENTURE ACTIVITY.  

In addition to Affidavit/Release, Grand Prize winner must complete, sign and return additional waivers and releases prior to engaging in applicable adventure activity as well as furnishing Sponsor and/or prize supplier with satisfactory proof of insurance, medical clearance to engage in applicable adventure activity, and compliance with other requirements.  GRAND PRIZE WINNER UNDERSTANDS AND AGREES THAT ENGAGING IN AN ADVENTURE ACTIVITY (BE IT HUNTING AND/OR FISHING) IS INHERENTLY DANGEROUS, AND CARRIES A RISK OF INJURY, DISMEMBERMENT, DISFIGUREMENT OR EVEN DEATH.  BY AGREEING TO PARTICIPATE IN AN ADVENTURE ACTIVITY, GRAND PRIZE WINNER KNOWINGLY ASSUMES ANY AND ALL RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH DOING SO, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. IF GRAND PRIZE WINNER IS NOT COMFORTABLE WITH THE RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH PARTICIPATING IN ANY OF THE ADVENTURE ACTIVITIES, THEIR ONLY RECOURSE IS TO REFRAIN FROM DOING SO; AND, FOR THE AVOIDANCE OF DOUBT, GRAND PRIZE WINNER MUST FORFEIT THE ADVENTURE TRIP ELEMENT OF THE GRAND PRIZE IN ITS ENTIRETY. IN SUCH CASE, THE SWEEPSTAKES ENTITIES SHALL NOT HAVE ANY LIABILITY OF ANY KIND TO GRAND PRIZE WINNER BEYOND AWARD OF THE GRAND PRIZE VEHICLE.

WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, THE SWEEPSTAKES ENTITIES EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL LIABILITY FOR INJURY TO THE GRAND PRIZE WINNER, ANY THIRD PARTY, DAMAGE TO ANY PROPERTY (WHETHER OWNED BY GRAND PRIZE WINNER OR A THIRD PARTY) OR OTHER LOSS OF ANY KIND, UNDER ANY LEGAL THEORY IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE AWARD, ACCEPTANCE OR USE OF THE APPLICABLE ADVENTURE ACTIVITY.

Grand Prize winner must conduct him/herself at all times in an appropriate, well-behaved and courteous manner during the Adventure Trip, as well as following all instructions of professional guide, prize supplier, and Administrator/Sponsor. Failure of winner to do so will result in immediate termination of Adventure Trip without compensation of any kind and perhaps forfeiture of the Ford F-Series pickup truck element of the Grand Prize (again, without compensation of any kind.)

While the Adventure Trip element of the Grand Prize is for the winner him/herself alone, Grand Prize winner may elect to have a guest join him/her on the trip subject to the following conditions:  (a) the guest is 21 years of age or older; (b) the guest signs a Liability Release (whereby the Sweepstakes Entities are released from any and all liability relative to the Adventure Trip) and, except where prohibited by law, a Publicity Release Form, within five (5) days of winner’s receipt of same, as well as any waivers and releases required for participation in the applicable adventure activity; (c) the guest will be solely responsible for any and all costs associated with his/her participation in the Adventure Trip and must travel on the same itinerary as Grand Prize winner, as set by Sponsor and/or Administrator; (d) the guest complies with all licensing/permit requirements, mandated safety certification/education courses and other restrictions relative to participation in the applicable adventure activity; and (e) winner understands and agrees that while Sweepstakes Entities will use commercially reasonable efforts to seek to accommodate a guest on winner’s chosen (and approved) Adventure Trip, Sweepstakes Entities will have no liability should they be unable to so accommodate winner’s guest for any reason whatsoever. 

Should Grand Prize winner choose an Adventure Trip with an ARV of less than $10,000, he/she will not receive the difference in cash or otherwise. In addition, if actual value of chosen/approved Adventure Trip is less than the stated ARV for such Adventure Trip, Grand Prize winner will not receive the difference in cash or otherwise. Adventure Trip will either include meals or a stipend to be used by Grand Prize winner to pay for meals. If Adventure Trip includes meals, Sponsor and / or Adventure Trip provider will determine the kind of meals offered. (Sponsor and prize supplier disclaim any liability relative to the composition of such meals, whether due to dietary restrictions, religious restrictions or otherwise). If awarded as a stipend, Sponsor shall determine the amount of the stipend in its sole discretion.

The Adventure Trips to Miami/Key West, FL; Dallas, TX; Boston, MA; and New York, NY will include use of a rental car during stay at destination in lieu of local ground transportation.  For such Adventure Trips, winner must comply with terms of standard rental car agreement, be 25 years of age or older and have at least one major credit card in good standing (as well as having a valid U.S. driver’s license currently in force). If winner does not qualify for rental car for any reason, winner will instead receive local ground transportation at destination or a stipend (in an amount of Sponsor’s sole choosing) to be used for local ground transportation.

Sponsor reserves the right to record (via electronic, video and/or audio recordation) the Grand Prize winner’s participation in the Adventure Trip, without further compensation or notice. Grand Prize winner understands and agrees that, as between the winner on the one hand and Sponsor on the other, Sponsor shall own and any and all rights to the content of such recordation.  Winner further agrees to waive any moral rights he/she may have in the recorded materials as well as to sign any and all documentation that Sponsor may require (upon request and without further compensation) so as to perfect, effect or record Sponsor’s ownership rights in the recorded materials.

The Adventure Trips to Smithers, British Columbia and Terrace, British, Columbia involve international travel and, as such, a valid passport or other travel documents is required to accept such Adventure Trips.

All expenses and costs related to acceptance and use of the Adventure Trip not expressly listed above, including but not limited to taxes and gratuities are entirely the Grand Prize winner’s responsibility. No refund or compensation will be made in the event of the cancellation or delay of any flight. Air travel is non-transferable and cannot be sold to or used by any person(s) other than the Grand Prize winner him/herself. If winner lives in the vicinity of the selected Adventure Trip location (in Sponsor's sole opinion) the winner will receive ground transfers in lieu of air travel, and no additional air travel prize or alternative prize will be awarded. In the event that adventure activity is cancelled, postponed or otherwise unavailable for any reason, that element of Grand Prize will be forfeited and the remaining elements of the Adventure Trip as well as the Ford F-Series pickup truck shall constitute full satisfaction of the Grand Prize.
