I am aware that participation in North Shore Paddlers Network (herein referred to as NSPN) activities is dangerous, physically demanding and hazardous, involving risk of injury, death, or personal property loss or damage. The risks include, but are not limited to, injury or fatality due to immersion underwater, impact with submerged or exposed objects, slipping and falling, accident or injuries in remote places without medical facilities sprains, strains, dislocations, or other injuries, exposure to temperature extremes or inclement weather, accidents while traveling to and from activity sites and other risks that may not be known. I am also aware that weather and sea conditions are unpredictable and are dangerous. I acknowledge that North Shore Paddlers Network volunteers who organize club activities, trips, or workshops are not professional leaders, guides or instructors, and should not be regarded as such. I agree that I am solely responsible for my own safety at all times when participating in club activities, and should consider and evaluate my ability to handle the conditions present at all times.
RELEASE AND WAIVER OF LIABILITY - I am aware that by signing the NSPN waiver and release of liability that I am giving up important legal rights.
INDEMNITY AGREEMENT - In Consideration for being permitted to participate in these activities I agree to indemnify and hold harmless NSPN, NSPN trip initiators, all members of NSPN, all trip
participants, (herein referred to as releasees) from all claims of liability for any injury, death, property damage or other losses incur even if caused by the negligence of the releases.
ASSUMPTION OF RISK - I voluntarily assume all risks, both known and unknown, and accept full responsibility for injury, death, property damage or other loss even if caused by the negligence of releasees. I am free of any medical condition that might create undue risk in myself or others who might depend upon me in these activities.
PERMISSION TO GIVE FIRST AID AND MEDICAL ASSISTANCE - If I am injured during an NSPN activity, I give permission for activity participants to administer first aid and to seek medical assistance as deemed necessary. I hereby release the releasees from any claim whatsoever on account of first aid treatment or service rendered to me during my participation in NSPN activities, even if caused by negligence of releasees. It is the intent of this agreement to exempt
and relieve from liability and bar any right to sue releasees for personal injury, property damage and wrongful death caused by negligence. I expressly agree that the NSPN Release and Waiver of Liability, and this Indemnity Agreement and Assumption of Risk are intended to be as broad and inclusive as permitted by the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and that if any portion is held invalid it is agreed that the balance shall continue in full legal force and effect. I have carefully read this agreement and fully understand its contents. I understand that by electronically signing this agreement I am giving up important legal rights. I understand and freely electronically sign this agreement and agree that no oral representations, statements or inducements have been made apart from the foregoing agreement.
