1. I ASSUME ALL RISKS.
I recognize the risk of serious injury, death, or other damages inherent in participating in outdoor activities.

I understand that any instruction or knowledge I obtain is NOT sufficient to prevent the dangers and risks of outdoor activities. I CERTIFY THAT I UNDERSTAND THE RISK OF SERIOUS INJURY, DEATH, OR OTHER DAMAGES INHERENT IN OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES. I KNOWINGLY AND VOLUNTARILY ASSUME ALL RISKS, WHETHER KNOWN OR UNKNOWN, OF INJURY, ILLNESS (INCLUDING COMMUNICABLE DISEASES SUCH AS COVID-19), DEATH, OR DAMAGE OF WHATEVER KIND ARISING OUT OF MY PARTICIPATING IN ANY ACTIVITY ADMINISTERED BY TBC.
2. I WAIVE AND RELEASE ALL CLAIMS.

In consideration of the agreement of TBC to offer outdoor activities and outdoor education to me, I AGREE TO RELEASE TBC OR ANYONE ASSOCIATED WITH TBC, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, STAFF, VOLUNTEERS, AND ADVISORS FROM ALL LIABILITY, AND KNOWINGLY, INTENTIONALLY, AND VOLUNTARILY WAIVE ALL CLAIMS, DEMANDS, OR CAUSES OF ACTION OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY CLAIMS OF NEGLIGENCE WHICH MAY ARISE AS A RESULT OF MY PARTICIPATION IN A TBC ADMINISTERED ACTIVITY.
3. I WILL HOLD HARMLESS AND INDEMNIFY TBC.
In consideration of the agreement of TBC to offer services to me, I agree to defend, protect, indemnify, and hold harmless TBC, its officers, directors, employees, volunteers, and advisors from and against any and all claims, suits, actions at law or in equity, for damages or other relief and against any liability or any nature that may arise out of my participation in outdoor activities. I EXPRESSLY AGREE NOT TO SUE THE BRONZE CHAPTER OR ANYONE ASSOCIATED WITH TBC, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, STAFF, VOLUNTEERS, AND ADVISORS FROM AND HEREBY WAIVE ALL CLAIMS AND LIABILITIES AGAINST TBC AND THOSE PARTIES, WITHOUT LIMITATION, INCLUDING CLAIMS FOR NEGLIGENCE ARISING FROM MY PARTICIPATION IN A TBC ADMINISTERED ACTIVITY.
4. I AGREE TO ABIDE BY ALL TBC RULES.

Severability: If any provision of this agreement or its application to any person or circumstance is held invalid or void, the remainder of the agreement and its application to other persons or circumstances is not affected and remains in full force and effect.
I AM FULLY AWARE OF THE CONTENTS OF THIS AGREEMENT AND RELEASE, AND HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL OF THE TERMS. THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT BIND ME, MY FAMILY (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO SPOUSES AND DOMESTIC PARTNERS), HEIRS, EXECUTORS, ADMINISTRATORS, DEPENDENTS, BENEFICIARIES, AND ASSIGNS.
