2. FULLY UNDERSTAND that: (a) ROWING ACTIVITIES INVOLVE RISKS AND DANGERS of serious bodily injury, including
permanent disability, paralysis and death ("Risks"); (b) these Risks and dangers may be caused by my own actions, or inactions,
the actions or inactions of others participating in the Activity, the condition in which the Activity takes place, or the negligence of
the Releasees named below; (c) there may be other risks and social and economic losses either not known to me or not readily
foreseeable at this time; and I FULLY ACCEPT AND ASSUME ALL SUCH RISKS AND ALL RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOSSES,
COSTS, AND DAMAGES I incur as a result of my participation in the Activity.
3. AGREE AND WARRANT that I will examine and inspect each Activity in which I take part as a member of the Club and that, if I
observe any condition which I consider to be unacceptably hazardous or dangerous, I will notify the proper authority in care of the
Activity and will refuse to take part in the Activity until the condition has been corrected to my satisfaction.
4. HEREBY RELEASE, discharge, and covenant not to sue US Rowing, the City of Dallas, the Club, their administrators, directors,

claims, demands, losses or damages on my account caused or alleged to be caused in whole or part by the negligence of the
Releasees or otherwise, including negligent rescue operations; and I further agree that if, despite this release and waiver of
liability, assumption of risk, and indemnity agreement, I, or anyone on my behalf, makes a claim against any of the Releasees, I
WILL INDEMNIFY, SAVE, AND HOLD HARMLESS each of the Releasees from any litigation, expenses, attorney fees, loss,
liability, damage, or cost which any may incur as a result of such claim. This includes, but is not limited to, claims based on the sole or concurrent
