I'd add that while IANAL (I Am Not A Lawyer), there really can't be any reasonable Fourth Amendment expectation of privacy for images at this event. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Expectation_of_privacy and http://www.rbs2.com/privacy.htm for some discussion.

Since this means that anyone who attends is giving up control of their images anyway, they might as well just sign it...

Subject: Re: [VADCFLL-L] Consent form issues

I know 5 years ago, parents could opt out of the the media release,
but that has not been the case for several years now. As Nick has
pointed out, it's not really feasible to *not* be photographed during
any tournament (local or state).

Many of the photographs of participants are forwarded to FIRST and/or used on our website and promotional material.  It would be impossible to use any photographs and ensure her child is not in them.  We may have TV coverage at the state tournament so if she has a problem with her child being on camera I don't see how her child can participate.
