Should the Winner not respond, or be unwilling or unable to comply with these Contest Rules, including the Prize Conditions, they will thereby forfeit the Prize and RMWFF may choose to draw another Entry as the Prize winner or terminate the prize.

Upon receipt of the correct answer to the skill testing question and the submission of properly executed forms, along with verification by RMWFF that the selected Entry is in compliance with all rules outlined under these Contest Rules, the Entry drawn will be declared the Winner. Otherwise, the Entrant will not be entitled to the Prize.
