Rowing Release and Waiver of Liability, Assumption of Risk and Indemnity Agreement (“Agreement”)

IN CONSIDERATION of being given the opportunity to participate in any way in the Row the Rockies Regatta, June 1, 2019, I, for myself, my personal representatives, assigns, heirs, and next of kin:

1. ACKNOWLEDGE, agree, and represent that I understand the nature of rowing activities, including, without limitation, the Regatta, both on water and land based, and that I am qualified, in good health, and in proper physical condition to participate in the Regatta.

2. FULLY UNDERSTAND that: (a) ROWING ACTIVITIES INVOLVE RISKS AND DANGERS of serious bodily injury, including permanent disability, paralysis, and death (“Risks and Dangers”); (b) these Risks and Dangers may be caused by my own actions, or inactions, the actions or inactions of others participating in the Regatta, the condition in which the Regatta 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 DANGERS AND ALL RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOSSES, COSTS, AND DAMAGES I incur as a result of my participation in the Regatta.

3. AGREE AND WARRANT that I will examine and inspect each activity of the Regatta in which I take part and that, if I observe any condition which I consider to be unacceptably hazardous or dangerous, I will notify the proper authority in charge of the Regatta and will refuse to take part in the Regatta until the condition has been corrected to my satisfaction.

4. HEREBY RELEASE, discharge, and covenant not to sue the Rocky Mountain Rowing Club, Cherry Creek State Park, Vencore Marine, USRowing, the Regatta, their administrators, directors, agents, officers, members, volunteers, and employees, other participants, regatta organizers, any sponsors, advertisers, and, if applicable, owners and lessors of premises on which the Regatta takes place, (each considered one of the “Releasees” herein) from all liability, claims, demands, losses, or damages on my account caused or alleged to be caused in whole or in 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 the result of such claim to the fullest extent permitted by law.

5. HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE and by my signature below, or that of my parent or guardian, attest that I have received, read, fully understand and will abide by the Regatta Safety Rules for Participants. I have read this agreement, fully understand its terms, understand that I have given up substantial rights by signing it and have signed it freely and without any inducement or assurance of any nature and intend it to be a complete and unconditional release of all liability to the greatest extent allowed by law and agree that if any portion of this agreement is held to be invalid the balance, notwithstanding, shall continue in full force and effect.
