RULES AND ENTRY FORM

There are two age categories 10 – 17 years old; 18 years old and up.

Hot dogs will be eaten plain (with no buns or condiments).

Contestants may not touch hot dogs until the starting signal.

Only entire hot dogs eaten will be counted.

Contestants will have 4 minutes to down all the hot dogs they can handle.

Contestants may drink only water, provided to them, while eating their hot dogs.

When the 4 minute time limit is up contestants may not put any additional hot dog in their mouths. They will have 20 seconds to swallow what is in their mouths. Any contents remaining in contestant’s mouths at the end of 20 seconds will not be counted.

Partially eaten hot dogs will not be counted.

Visible signs of sickness will result in disqualification.

Ties will be decided by an “eat off,” using the same rules as listed above, but in a shortened, 1-minute winner take all contest.

All Registrants must read and sign this waiver before entering.

I know that eating large amounts of hot dogs is a potentially hazardous and an uncomfortable activity. I know that I should not enter and eat unless I am medically capable. I realize that this is all in good fun (and possibly bad taste), but I agree to be a good sport and to have fun. 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, that stuffed feeling, contact with other contestants, embarrassment, and a general dislike for hot dogs after I am done. Having read this waiver and knowing these facts and in consideration of you accepting my entry, I, for myself and anyone entitled to act on my behalf, waive and release The Dallas Kosher BBQ Championship, Congregation Beth Torah and its Men’s Club, Sunnyland Furniture, and anyone else besides myself, from all claims of liabilities of any kind arising out of my participation in this event. I also acknowledge that the eating contest will be photographed and/or video recorded and that those images of my participation will be used on social media platforms and other means by the contest organizers, and I’m ok with that, too!

Electronic Signature. 18 Years old and above.

Electronic Signature: if contestant is under the age of 18
