Waiver and Release of Liability
In consideration of being allowed to participate in any way in the BC Lake Stewardship and Monitoring Program the undersigned acknowledges, appreciates, and agrees that:
The risk of injury from the activities involved in this program is significant, including the potential for permanent paralysis and death, and while particular rules, equipment, and personal discipline may reduce this risk, the risk of serious injury does exist; and,
I KNOWINGLY AND FREELY ASSUME ALL SUCH RISKS, both known and unknown, EVEN IF ARISING FROM THE NEGLIGENCE OF THE RELEASEES or others, and assume full responsibility for my participation; and,
I ACKNOWLEDGE, agree, and represent that I understand the nature of boating activities, both on water and land based, and that I am qualified, in good health, and in proper physical condition to participate in such activity; and,
I willingly agree to comply with the stated and customary terms and conditions for participation. If, however, I observe any unusual significant hazard during my presence or participation, I will remove myself from participation and bring such to the attention of the nearest official immediately; and,
I, for myself and on behalf of my heirs, assigns, personal representatives and next of kin,
HEREBY RELEASE AND HOLD HARMLESS the BC Lake Stewardship Society, their Directors,
officials, agents and/or employees, partners, other participants, sponsoring agencies,
sponsors, advertisers, and, if applicable, owners and lessors of premises used to conduct
the event ("Releasees"), WITH RESPECT TO ANY AND ALL INJURY, DISABILITY, DEATH, or
loss or damage to person or property, WHETHER CAUSED BY THE NEGLIGENCE OF THE REALESEES OR OTHREWISE.
I HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND THE ABOVE SAFETY PROGRAM MATERIAL AND UNDERSTAND THE HAZARDS INVOLVED WITH PERFORMING LAKE SAMPLING AND WILL MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO PERFORM THIS SERVICE IN A SAFE MANNER. I UNDERSTAND THAT I CANNOT SAMPLE ON DAYS WHERE THE WEATHER OR LAKE CONDITIONS MAKE SAMPLING HAZARDOUS AND THAT, IF NECESSARY, THE SCHEDULED SAMPLING SHOULD NOT BE CONDUCTED. I HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND THE RELEASE OF LIABILITY AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK AGREEMENT, FULLY UNDERSTAND ITS TERMS, UNDERSTAND THATI HAVE GIVEN UP SUBSTANTIAL RIGHTS BY SIGNING IT, AND SIGN IT FREELY AND VOLUNTARILY WITHOUT ANY INDUCEMENT.
