Purse based on number of participating teams. Team entry must be received prior to first round of eliminations beginning on Sunday. Turn in registration form and entry fee at Registration building outside Tunnel Entrance.

In the event of a tie, the following tiebreaker system will be used:
1) Team with most event wins on Sunday wins tie; 2) team with most event finalist on Sunday wins tie; 3) team with most event semi-finalist on Sunday wins tie; 4) team with most event quarter-finalist on Sunday wins tie; 5) etc.

You pick the team, you win the rounds, we pay the cash! Hang around Sunday for the Summit Team Challenge! Tag your teammates!
