Entry Agreement and Acknowledgement of Responsibility
If accepted to participate in the Rio Grande Classic Balloon Rally held on May 26 through 28, 2018, I will pilot only the balloon(s) in which I am registered and agree to the following.
As a condition of entry, I agree not to conduct any operations involving balloon rides for hire, during the Rio Grande Classic Balloon Rally events.
I hereby agree to have in full force during the Rio Grande Classic Balloon Rally a balloon insurance policy in the minimum amount of $500,000 bodily injury, $100,000 minimum property damage and $100,000 minimum passenger liability for each and every passenger I carry (Zero-dollar liability deductible); through an insurance company with a BEST rating of at least B+ (or its equivalent if the company is not domiciled in the United States). I understand the total number of passengers I carry may not be more than is allowed by my insurance coverage and the balloon manufacturer’s limitations and in no event may the total number of persons on board (including the competitor) exceed three (3) (does not apply to official ride concessionaires). I agree to maintain an automobile insurance policy for my chase vehicle in compliance with New Mexico regulations.
I hereby agree that the pilot of each balloon has full and complete authority over the balloon and is responsible for all decisions with the balloon on the ground and in the air.

I agree that none of the flights are mandatory and that I will make all flights at my option.
I hereby declare that I am participating in the Rio Grande Classic Balloon Rally of my own free volition. I understand that ballooning is dangerous and I assume all risks and dangers associated with ballooning in this Rio Grande Classic Balloon Rally. I agree that the organizers and sponsors of the Rio Grande Classic Balloon Rally, are providing me with the facilities and means for my participation in this event and in no way do they supersede the responsibility of the Pilot in Command, as shown in the FARs, or otherwise.

I hereby give permission, without any restriction, to Top Gun Inc., to use still and motion pictures and sound recordings of me, my balloon, equipment, chase crew members, employees and agents for news, advertising, promotional media and commercial uses.
I agree that this Agreement is to be governed by the laws of the State of New Mexico, and that I hereby submit myself to the jurisdiction of the New Mexico courts in Sandoval and Bernalillo counties, concerning any claims arising out of the Rio Grande Classic Balloon Rally or this agreement.
