PARTICIPANT AGREEMENT, RELEASE AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK
In consideration of the services of Off Road Consulting LLC, their agents, owners, officers, volunteers, employees, and all other
persons or entities acting in any capacity on their behalf (hereinafter collectively referred to as "ORCL"), I hereby agree to release,
indemnify, and discharge ORCL, on behalf of myself, my spouse, my children, my parents, my heirs, assigns, personal representative and
estate as follows:
1. I acknowledge that my participation in OHV guided training & instruction activities entails known and unanticipated risks that could
result in physical or emotional injury, paralysis, death, or damage to myself, to property, or to third parties. I understand that such risks
simply cannot be eliminated without jeopardizing the essential qualities of the activity.
The risks include, among other things: here is the possibility of rough terrain; passengers can be jolted, jarred, bounced, thrown about
and otherwise shaken during rides; it is possible that riders could be injured if they come into contact with other passengers or equipment;
injuries can be sustained from the trail, equipment or from items on the trail such as holes, bumps, ruts, obstacles, tree limbs and branches
or rocks; major injuries are a risk as are bruises and sprains; musculoskeletal injuries including head, neck, and back injuries; injuries to
internal organs; loss of fingers or other appendages; exhaustion; exposure to the elements of the outdoors and natural surroundings which
could cause hypothermia, hyperthermia (heat related illnesses), heat exhaustion, sunburn, dehydration; and exposure to potentially
dangerous wild animals, insect bites, and hazardous plant life; the negligence of other participants or persons who may be present; transmissible pathogens and disease; further,
passengers can be thrown off the vehicles which can result in any of the above events occurring; accidentsinvolving other vehicles; collision
with fixed or movable objects; collisions, and flipping over; traveling to and from activity locations raises the possibility of any manner of
transportation accidents; accidents or illness can occur in remote places without medical facilities and emergency treatment or other services
rendered; the machine itself may fail; and accidents can occur getting in or out.
Furthermore, ORCL personnel have difficult jobs to perform. They seek safety, but they are not infallible. They might be unaware
of a participant's fitness or abilities. They might misjudge the weather or other environmental conditions. They may give incomplete
warnings or instructions, and the equipment being used might malfunction.
2. I expressly agree and promise to accept and assume all of the risks existing in this activity. My participation in this activity is
purely voluntary, and I elect to participate in spite of the risks. A properly fitted and secured DOT or SNELL certified helmet must
be worn by all Participants when a helmet is required by applicable state law or when recommended or required by the
manufacturer. I agree to wear seat belts at all times while participating in this activity.
3. I hereby voluntarily release, forever discharge, and agree to indemnify and hold harmless ORCL from any and all claims, demands, or
causes of action, which are in any way connected with my participation in this activity or my use of ORCL’s equipment or facilities,
including any such claims which allege negligent acts or omissions of ORCL.
4. Should ORCL or anyone acting on their behalf, be required to incur attorney's fees and costs to enforce this agreement, I agree to
indemnify and hold them harmless for all such fees and costs.
5. I certify that I have adequate insurance to cover any injury or damage I may cause or suffer while participating, or else I agree to bear
the costs of such injury or damage myself. I further certify that I am willing to assume the risk of any medical or physical condition I
6. In the event that I file a lawsuit against ORCL, I agree to do so solely in the state of Pennsylvania and I further agree that the substantive
law of that state shall apply in that action without regard to the conflict of law rules of that state. I agree that if any portion of this
agreement is found to be void or unenforceable, the remaining document shall remain in full force and effect.
By signing this document, I acknowledge that if anyone is hurt or property is damaged during my participation in this activity,
I may be found by a court of law to have waived my right to maintain a lawsuit against ORCL on the basis of any claim from which
I have released them herein. I also agree that this document is valid for subsequent visits and participation at ORCL. I have had
sufficient opportunity to read this entire document. I have read and understood it, and I agree to be bound by its terms.
