This release is in consideration of my being permitted to participate in ALL ACTIVITIES organized by Los Angeles Birders (the “Event”).
I recognize there are risks of injury, sickness, loss and other costs and expenses associated with participating in the Event. I hereby agree to assume all risks that may occur as a result of participating in the Event.
I, my spouse (if any), assignees, heirs, guardians, and legal representatives hereby voluntarily, and to the fullest extent permitted by law, indemnify, release from liability, agree to defend and hold harmless Los Angeles Birders, and its officers, partners, affiliated companies, employees, agents, representatives, or individual affiliated therewith (collectively, the “Releasees”), for any accident, injury, illness, death, loss, theft, damage to person or property, or other consequences suffered by me arising or resulting directly or indirectly from my participation in the Event, including but not limited to claims arising from or related to the Releasees’ negligence. In the event that I am injured, I agree to assume any financial obligation, either through my health insurance, or through some other means, for any medical costs that I incur. The Releasees assume no responsibility for any medical expenses, injury, or damage suffered by me in connection with my participation in the Event.
IT IS MY INTENTION BY SIGNING THIS AGREEMENT TO EXPRESSLY ASSUME ALL RISK OF SUCH PERSONAL INJURY, DEATH, OR PROPERTY DAMAGE UPON MYSELF, TO THE EXCLUSION OF THE RELEASEES, AND TO EXEMPT AND RELIEVE THE RELEASEES FROM LIABILITY FOR PERSONAL INJURY, PROPERTY DAMAGE OR WRONGFUL DEATH, INCLUDING IF CAUSED BY THE RELEASEES’ NEGLIGENCE.
By signing this agreement, I waive my right to bring any legal action now or at any time in the future to recover compensation or obtain any other remedy for any injury to myself or my property or for my death, however caused, arising out of my participation in the Event. I further agree that I, my spouse (if any), assignees, heirs, guardians, and legal representatives will not make any claim against, sue or attach the property of the Releasees for any loss or damage resulting from my participation in the Event. I am aware of the potential dangers incidental to participation in the Event, that this is a release of liability, a waiver of my legal right to collect damages in the event of injury, death or property damage, and a contract between me and the Releasees, and I sign it of my own free will.
I expressly agree that this release is intended to be as broad and inclusive as the State of California will allow to the fullest extent permitted by law, and that if any portion is held invalid, I agree that the balance shall, notwithstanding, continue in full legal force and effect.
