Dragon Derby 2020 Official Rules & FAQ's
Event to be held Sunday August 9th, at Rock River Rapids 1900 E James St, Derby, KS 67037 and live streamed via Facebook Live. In case of inclement weather, acts of God or other circumstances, Dragon Master Foundation (the Producer) reserves the right to postpone or reschedule the race, or determine winners by a random drawing, at its sole discretion. Due to Covid 19, this event is not open to the public.
This contest is being run exclusively by Dragon Master Foundation, and its Officers and Board members serve as judges. We anticipate some photo finishes. Ruling of the judges is final.
Last to Finish will be awarded to the last entry completing 1 lap. Entries that pass the finish line chute after completing a lap are disqualified from winning Last to Finish, but may still win their prize if they are a designated "special entry". In other words if they "escape" and take a second lap, they are not eligible for last place due to that accidental continuation around the Lazy River.
The Dragon Derby race will happen rain or shine. No entry fees will be refunded, as the event will proceed, either during rain or if weather is severe, at the next possible date, or via random drawing.

Each entry (Dragon character or otherwise) will be randomly assigned to an entrant. We will be double randomizing. First the list of entries will be randomized, and then each dragon’s entry number will be randomized, and then matched to an entry.

All winners will receive email notification by 5pm on 8/10/20, and prizes, when possible, will be mailed. Other prizes will have delivery arranged with the winner via email.
