These inherent risks include, but are not limited to, the dangers of serious personal injury, death and property damage (“Injuries and Damages”) resulting from physical contact with others, equipment and facilities. I fully understand that the Released Parties have not tried to contradict or minimize my understanding of these risks.

I understand the risks of such Injuries and Damages involved in the event and I appreciate that I may have to exercise extra care for my own person and for others around me in the face of such hazards. I further understand that there may not be medical personnel or medical facilities or expertise necessary to deal with the Injuries and Damages to which I may be exposed. In consideration for my acceptance as a participant in the event, and the services and amenities provided by the Released Parties in connection with the event, I CONFIRM MY UNDERSTANDING OF THE FOLLOWING: RELEASE OF LIABILITY. To the fullest extent allowed by law, I agree to WAIVE AND DISCHARGE CLAIMS AGAINST, RELEASE FROM LIABILITY, INDEMNIFY AND HOLD HARMLESS the Released Parties and their officers, Board members, directors, employees, volunteers and agents (collectively, “Released Parties”) from and against ANY AND ALL LIABILITY on account of, or in any way resulting from, my death or personal injury relating to my participation in the event, even if caused by NEGLIGENCE of the Released Parties. Such negligence could involve (a) negligent operation and supervision of the event, (b) negligent maintenance or operation of the site or facilities in which event is conducted, (c) negligent manufacture of or use of equipment to be used in the event, and (d) the negligent provision of emergency response services. I understand and intend that the assumption of risk and release is binding upon my heirs, executors, administrators and assigns. This Waiver and Release is intended to be as broad and inclusive as is permitted by law. If any provision or any part of any provision of this Waiver and Release is held to be invalid or legally unenforceable for any reason, the remainder of this Waiver and Release shall not be affected thereby and shall remain valid and fully enforceable. I have read this Waiver and Release of Liability in its entirety and I freely and voluntarily choose to participate and assume all risks of Injuries and Damages. I agree to obey any rules and regulations that may relate to the event. I acknowledge my waiver of any right I may have to bargain for different terms of this waiver and recognize that a narrower waiver would increase the costs associated with the event and/or limit or preclude my participation in the event.
