NO BLAME WAIVER
By participating in a hike with the Pebble Creek Hiking Club (hereafter known as “PCHC”), I acknowledge that I will be participating in outdoor activities that are potentially dangerous including but not limited to: walking, hiking, and backpacking events organized by the volunteers of the PCHOA & PCHC. PCHC is a meet-up organization where hikers and backpackers meet to
participate in outdoor adventure events called Outings (“Outings”).
The waiver of liability is an agreement that attendance at these Outings is strictly voluntary and of my own choice and that I agree 100% to accept personal responsibility for all and any fore- seen and unforeseen events that may occur during, including to and from, club Outings, with club members and club activities.
I understand that during my participation in PCHC Outings, I may be exposed to a variety of hazards and risks, foreseen and unforeseen, which are inherent in each Outing and cannot be eliminated without destroying the unique character of the Outings. These inherent risks include,
but are not limited to, the dangers of serious personal injury, property damage, and death (“injuries and death”) from exposure to the hazards of outdoor activities and travel to and from these activities.
The PCHC has not tried to contradict or minimize my understanding of these risks. I know that Injuries and Damages can occur by natural causes or activities of other persons, animals, trip members, trip organizers and assistant organizers or third parties, either as a result of negli- gence or because of other reasons.
The club, its organizer, assistant organizers, and Outing participants take no responsibility for me and will not be held responsible for any injuries or accidents that may occur during club Outings. Outdoor sports are inherently dangerous and accidents will happen and that risks of such Injuries and Damages are a part of adventure Outings. I appreciate that I may have to ex- ercise extra care for my own person in the face of such hazards.
In consideration for my acceptance as a participant on Outings, I confirm my understanding that:
By joining, I freely and voluntarily assume all risks of such Injuries and Damages.
