Terms and Conditions:
I agree to participate in a responsible manner, bring enough water to prevent dehydration (1 quart or more, water will also be provided), wear my PFD (Personal Floatation Device) at all times for the duration of the event, and release the rights to any photo or film taken of me by event organizors for publishing in an advertisement, flyer, brochure, news release, newspaper article, or for television viewing.
I realize that risks from storms, lightening strikes, overturning of boats, and other dangers exist in my participation of boating activities made available by the Braxton County CVB. I also represent that I and the persons for whom I am responsible for are in good health and physically able to safely participate in the sport of boating. I realize and agree to inform minor children in my care that participation in boating may result in property loss, delay, illness, injury, paralysis, or death due to the foregoing dangers, the negligence of others, forces of nature, or other causes known or unknown. I specifically realize that the dangers increase significantly if anyone leaves the boat and enters the water. I am also aware that medical services may not be readily available or accessible during part or all of these activities. By my participation in these activities, I hereby knowingly and expressly assume all risks arising out of them.
As a parent, guardian, or supervisor of a minor child, children, or other adult, I make this agreement individually and on behalf of this minor child, children, or adult, to induce the Braxton County CVB to allow the child, children, or adult, to ride in or operate a boat.
I, on behalf of myself, my personal representatives, and my heirs, hereby covenant not to sue and I agree to release, hold harmless, and indemnify the Braxton County CVB and their agents, officers, employees or successors from any and all contract or negligence claims and suits for bodily injury, property damage, wrongful DEATH, loss of services or otherwise which may arise out of my participation in this activity or in the participation of those persons or children for whom I am legally responsible. I further agree to participate in this activity only if every member of my party (including myself) properly uses a PFD (life preserver), realizing that the proper use of this life preserver is my/our responsibility.
