Paddle Antrim Stewardship Paddling Class 2023

Assumption of Risk, Liability Waiver, and Release of Claims


I recognize that this Paddle Antrim class involves an open water paddle through various waterways and wilderness areas where help or assistance may not be readily available. I understand that I am expected to stay with the paddling class. I understand that this class is best-suited to paddlers with some experience. If I choose to not stay with the group, I consider my participation in this event over and assume all responsibility for my actions.

I understand that my participation in the class carries with it the potential for serious injury, death, and property loss. The risks include those caused by water, weather, kayak and boat traffic on the waterways, lack of hydration, equipment, terrain, and actions of other people including participants, volunteers, class officials, the class organizer, and spectators. I realize that dangerous weather conditions may occur. It is my sole responsibility to be prepared for any water and weather conditions that may arise during the class and to be familiar with the event and its course.  

I assume any and all risks of injury or death, whether foreseeable or not. I understand and agree that situations may arise during the event which may be beyond control of the class officials or organizer. Even knowing all of these things, I still want to participate in the paddle class.

I agree to follow the rules of the class and directives of class officials and volunteers.


I waive, release, and discharge from any and all claims, losses, or liabilities for death, personal injury, partial and permanent disability, property damage, medical and hospital bills, and theft or damage of any kind, which may in the future may arise out of or relate to my participation in, or traveling to and from, the event, and any other activities connected with the event in which I may voluntarily participate, the following entities and persons (the Released Parties) even if such claims, losses or liabilities are caused by negligent acts or omissions of any other person or entity, including the Released Parties:

  1. Paddle Antrim
  2. Paddle Antrim’s directors, officers, employees, agents, and volunteers
  3. All event sponsors and their owners, directors, officers, employees, and agents
  4. All event service providers and volunteers

This release is binding on my legal representatives and anyone who submits a claim on my behalf or in my name.

I agree not to sue any of the Released Parties for any of the claims, losses, or liabilities that I have waived or released.


If any of the Released Parties is sued or has to pay money to anyone else because of my conduct, action or inaction, then I will reimburse them for all of their attorney fees, costs, and payments. I will also reimburse the Released Parties for all claims, including attorney fees and costs that may be brought against any of them by anyone claiming to have been injured as a result of any injury to me or my property that may occur during the event or immediately thereafter.


I do not know of any health condition of mine that could become worse if I participate in the event. I represent that I am physically fit, have sufficiently trained for participation in the event, and have not been advised by my physician not to participate in the event. I authorize Paddle Antrim, event officials, and all volunteers to request emergency medical treatment for me during the event, and I consent to receive medical treatment that may be deemed necessary in the event of injury, accident, and/or illness during the event.


I understand that alcohol consumption is not permitted during the event, and I agree not to consume alcohol immediately before or during the event. Visibly intoxicated persons will not be permitted to participate in the event.


I agree that Paddle Antrim (and its employees, agents, and volunteers) are not responsible for any of my personal property that could be lost, damaged, or stolen during the event.


I understand that I may be photographed or recorded while I participate in the event. I grant permission to Paddle Antrim, and its assigns, to use my name and likeness in any photograph, video, or digital image without further consent by me and without payment of any compensation to me to which I would otherwise be entitled as a result of the use of my name or likeness.


I have read this release, I understand it, and I sign it freely with the knowledge and understanding that it is intended to provide a release and waiver to the maximum extent permitted under applicable law.
