I know that eating large amounts of hot dogs is potentially hazardous and is an uncomfortable activity. I should not enter and participate unless I am medically capable. I realize that this is in good fun and I agree to be a good sport. I agree to abide by any decision of the contest officials and all of the contest rules. I assume all risks associated with eating in this type of event including but not limited to indigestion, contact with other contestants, a general dislike for hot dogs after I am done, and all such risks being known and associated with the competition. Having read this waiver and knowing these facts and in consideration of you accepting my entry, I waive and release The Pelican House LLC, their representatives, sponsors, and their successors from all claims of liabilities of any kind arising out of my participation in this event.
