Acknowledgment, Assumption of Risk and Release
In consideration of my participation in any and all programs and activities of the BRATTLEBORO OUTING CLUB (BOC), including but not limited to alpine skiing, cross-country skiing, ski jumping, tennis, rowing, canoeing, paddling, and other water sports:
I acknowledge and agree that the activities of the BOC are action sports carrying significant risk of serious personal injury, death, or property damage. I also know that there are natural, mechanical, and environmental conditions and risks which, independently or in combination with my activities, may cause property damage or severe or fatal physical or mental injuries to me or others. The risks and conditions include but are not limited to irregular or hazardous surface or water conditions, equipment failure, poor weather conditions, being struck by objects, or being struck by others.
I agree that I am alone responsible for my safety while participating in these programs and activities and in providing, using, and maintaining equipment necessary for my safe participation in these sports.
Being fully aware of these risks, conditions and hazards of participation in these programs and activities, I waive, release, and discharge any and all claims against the BOC and its officers, officials, agents, members, instructors, and employees, for liability or damages for death, personal injury, or property damage I may have or which may hereafter accrue to me as a result of my participation in any of these activities. This release is intended to include the entities and persons identified above as well as the sponsors of the BOC program or activity, any professional association affiliated with the program or activity, such as the United States Tennis Association, and any promoting agencies through or by which the program or activity will be held, and to protect them from liability for any and all damages which may be sustained by myself directly or indirectly in connection with or arising out of my participation in BOC programs or activities, or association with the BOC, or travel to or return from a BOC facility.
Should I observe any significant hazards during my presence or participation in these programs and activities, I will remove myself from the activity and notify the nearest official immediately.
I agree to hold harmless and indemnify the BOC and its officers, officials, agents, members, instructors, and employees, and its sponsors, professional association affiliates, and promoting agencies from any and all liability for death, personal injury, or property damage resulting in any way from my participation in these programs and activities.
I agree that I will accept and abide by the rules and regulations imposed by the BOC for participation in programs and/or activities provided or sponsored by the BOC.
