RELEASE & HOLD HARMLESS AGREEMENT
I hereby represent that I wish to participate in the Bellingham Scottish Gathering on June 1, 2019 sponsored by the Scottish Dance Society (SDS). I recognize that any activity may involve certain dangers, including but not limited to the hazards of the forces of nature, and the actions of other participants and other persons unaffiliated with SDS. I understand that these hazards produce a risk of physical harm or death, as well as a risk of loss or damage to my personal property. I further understand and agree that SDS would not be able to sponsor such Events without some form of agreement providing protection for SDS and its officers, directors, paid staff and volunteer workers.
In consideration of, and as part payment for my privilege to participate in the Bellingham Scottish Gathering, I hereby release Whatcom County, the Clan Heather Dancers, SDS and its officers, directors and volunteer workers from any and all liability, claims and/or causes of action arising out of, or in any way connected with my participation in any and all of the activities of the Event. I personally assume all risks in connection with these activities, and further agree to hold Whatcom County, SDS and its officers, directors, paid staff and volunteer workers harmless from and against any and all liability, claims and/or causes of action which I may have arising from my participation in any and all of the activities of the Event, including but not limited to those involving negligence on the part of such officers, directors, paid staff or volunteer workers, which result in personal injury or death to myself and/or loss or damage to my personal property. The terms of this agreement shall bind myself and my heirs, assigns, and personal representatives.
I agree to allow Scottish Dance Society to photograph or record my activities, or those of the competitor for whom this application is being submitted at the Event(s) for promotional purposes.
If submitting credit card information for payment of registration fees, my signature here also authorizes SDS to process a charge against my account in the amount indicated in the “Total Amt. Enclosed” field on this page. I have fully informed myself of the contents of this release and hold harmless agreement by reading it before I have signed it.
Waiver must be signed by a parent or guardian if entrant is not at least 18 years of age.
