I confirm that I am 18 years of age or older. I am not relying on any oral or written
statements, if any, made by REGINA DRAGON BOAT FESTIVAL and its personnel,
whether in brochure, advertisements or in individual conversations, to lead me to
become involved in this program on any basis other than my assumptions of the risks
involved. I accept all of the risks and the possibility of death, personal injury, property
damage, and loss, resulting from my involvement with practice and racing events. I
acknowledge that REGINA DRAGON BOAT FESTIVAL personnel have been available to
fully explain the various hazards and risks associated with this activity. In addition, I
