I hereby release and discharge the City of Regina, the Regina Dragon Boat Festival Inc
(herein referred to as “RDBF”, the Regina Dragon Boat Club, its agents, coaches,
directors, employees, members, officers, sponsors, and volunteers (herein collectively
referred to as “personnel”) from all claims, demands, actions, judgements, and
executions which the undersigned’s heirs, successors, executors, administrators,
representatives, or assigns may have, or claim to have for any and/or all personal
injuries, known and unknown, and injuries to property, real or personal, caused by or
arising out of, the participation in the activity of dragon boating or any other activity
related to the Regina Dragon Boat Festival, not limited to dry land training (e.g. physical
workouts), on water practices, and/or racing at the venue.
I, the below-signed, fully understand, acknowledge and agree that this sport activity has
inherent risks involved, and I am fully aware of the nature of these risks.
Notwithstanding these risks, I hereby indemnify and waive any and all rights, claims,
prospective causes of action, cause of action, etc. as heretofore enumerated, and I
hereby assume any and all risk associated with my participation in this sporting activity. I
understand that paddling on lakes involve certain dangers, not all of which can be listed
here. Among the more obvious and frequent are:
- Exposure to variable extremes in weather that may cause injury due to heat or cold, and which may prevent or force route and itinerary changes.
- Contact with and possible immersion in cold water for undetermined periods, leading to hypothermia and possible suffocation.
- Exposure to capsizing and sinking, rocks, trees, bridge abutments, log jams, rope entanglement, current patterns, and other possible sources of “in water” injury and entrapment.
- Transport by public or private motor vehicle.
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
agree to read the REGINA DRAGON BOAT FESTIVAL
Safety Procedures on the REGINA DRAGON BOAT FESTIVAL website under HELP.
