Outdoor adventures by their very nature are inherently dangerous and involve risks, including the risks of serious injury or death. I understand that participating in ONC’s activities may expose me to certain risks and dangers including, but not limited to, the hazards of mountainous, aquatic and wilderness terrain, accidents, and forces of nature. I assert that my participation in ONC’s activities is voluntary and that I assume all such risks. I understand that it is not possible to foresee all hazards of outdoor activities and that there may not be rescue or medical facilities necessary to treat injuries. In consideration of my being permitted to participate in ONC activities, I do hereby assume all the risks inherent in these activities and agree to hold ONC, its officers, tour leaders, assistant leaders, instructors, and members harmless from and against any and all liability for any reason, including, but not limited to, negligence.
By signing this Waiver and Release, I acknowledge that I have read and understand its entire content and agree to all its terms, and intend it to be a complete and unconditional release of all liability. I acknowledge and understand that this Waiver and Release legally prevents me, my heirs, assigns, or legal representatives from filing suit for damages resulting from injury, death, or any other reasons, against ONC, its officers, tour leaders, assistant leaders, instructors and members. If I am signing on behalf of a minor under age 18, I accept full responsibility for any and all damages incurred from that minor’s participation in ONC activities.
I have read and understand the above statements concerning the Oregon Nordic Club’s programs. Each single member and family (household) member must sign. Parents or guardians please sign this form for members under 18 years of age.
