I am aware and understand that some of the activities may be dangerous activities and involve the risk of serious illness and/or injury and/or death and/or property damage.

I acknowledge that I am voluntarily participating in the activities with knowledge of the danger involved and hereby agree to accept and assume any and all risks of injury, death, or property damage, whether caused by the negligence of the companies or others.

I hereby expressly waive and release any and all claims, now known or hereafter known in any jurisdiction, against the Companies, and their officers, directors, employees, agents, affiliates, shareholders, successors, and assigns (collectively, “Releasees”), on account of injury, death, or property damage arising out of or attributable to my participation in the Activities, whether arising out of the negligence of the Companies or any Releasees or otherwise. I covenant not to make or bring any such claim against the Companies or any other Releasee, and forever release and discharge the Companies and all other Releasees from liability under such claims. I hereby expressly agree to sign any additional waivers that other sponsors of or exhibitors at the Activity may request of me.

I also understand and agree that I may be identified by name and/or title in printed, Internet or broadcast information that might accompany the photographs and/or video recordings of me. I waive the right to approve the final product. I agree that all such portraits, pictures, photographs, video and audio recordings, and any reproductions thereof, and all plates, negatives, recording tape and digital files are and shall remain the property of the Company.

I hereby release, acquit and forever discharge the Company, its current and former affiliated brands, trustees, agents, officers and employees of the above-named entities from any and all claims, demands, rights, promises, damages and liabilities arising out of or in connection with the use or distribution of said photographs and/or video recordings, including but not limited to any claims for invasion of privacy, appropriation of likeness or defamation.
