I understand that activities available at GO•REC include but are not limited to disc golf, hiking, biking, climbing, paddling watercraft, fishing, swimming, skiing, snowshoeing, and sledding (hereinafter collectively referred to as “Activities”).
In consideration of participating in any and all Activities and for other good and valuable consideration, I voluntarily assume all such risks of my own free will.
I hereby agree to release and discharge GO•REC, Rotary Camps & Services of Traverse City, its owners, directors, officers, employees, agents, volunteers, participants, and all other persons or entities acting for them (hereinafter collectively referred to as “Releasees”) from any and all claims, losses, liabilities, or damages arising from negligence.
I do so on behalf of myself and my children, parents, heirs, assigns, personal representative and estate.
I also agree as follows:
1. I acknowledge that Activities involve known and unanticipated risks, which include but are not limited to death, paralysis, broken bones, torn ligaments, bruises, brain damage, hearing loss, loss of vision, medical conditions resulting from physical activity, and damaged clothing or other property. I understand such risks cannot be eliminated, despite the use of safety equipment, without jeopardizing the essential qualities of the activity.
2. I expressly accept and assume all risks inherent in this activity or that might have been caused by negligence of the Releasees. My participation in this activity is purely voluntary and I elect to participate despite the risks. In addition, if at any time I believe that event conditions are unsafe or that I am unable to participate due to physical or medical conditions, then I will immediately discontinue participation.
By signing this document, I agree that if I am hurt, become ill, or my property is damaged during my participation in Activities, then I may be found by a court of law to have waived my right to maintain a lawsuit against the Releasees on the basis of any claim for negligence.
I have had sufficient time to read this entire document and, should I choose to do so, consult with legal counsel prior to signing.
Also, I understand that this activity might not be made available to me or that the cost to engage in this activity would be significantly greater if I were to choose not to sign this release, and I agree that the opportunity to participate at the stated cost in return for the execution of this release is a reasonable bargain.
I have read and understood this document and I agree to be bound by its terms.
