"ALL CONTESTANTS MUST ARRIVE TO THE CORRECT GUITAR CENTER LOCATION AT LEAST 30 MINUTES PRIOR TO THE SCHEDULED START OF THE IN-STORE COMPETITION TO BE ELIGIBLE. ALL CONTESTANTS AGREE THAT THE OFFICIAL TIME SHALL BE DETERMINED BY THE ONSITE GUITAR CENTER ACTING MANAGER AND SHALL BE BINDING. ANY CONTESTANT WHO IS NOT PRESENT AT THE DESIGNATED TIME WILL BE DISQUALIFIED AND WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE TO COMPETE IN THAT COMPETITION" I arrived a minute late, literally, and was disqualified. Manager claimed he couldn't do anything. According the the underlined, he could have, right? Just wondering.
