WAIVER OF ALL CLAIMS AND RELEASE OF LIABILITIES
THIS WAIVER DOES NOT AFFECT MY RIGHT TO ASSERT A CLAIM AGAINST AN INDIVIDUAL WHETHER A NON-MEMBER OR AN AMA MEMBER, EVEN THOUGH IT DOES PROHIBIT ASSERTING ANY CLAIMS AGAINST THE CLUB, THEIR AGENTS INVOLVED IN THIS EVENT, THE SITE OWNER, AND/OR ANY OTHER SITE OWNER INVOLVED IN THIS EVENT, AND ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY NOT DIRECTLY INVOLVED IN ANY CLAIM. NEITHER DOES THIS WAIVER HINDER OR LIMIT MY INSURANCE COVERAGE UNDER THE COMMERCIAL GENERAL LIABILITY COVERAGE AMA POLICY, OR PROHIBIT AN AMA MEMBER CLAIM UNDER THE AMA ACCIDENT/MEDICAL COVERAGE, OR FIRE, VANDALISM AND THEFT COVERAGE POLICIES.
For and in consideration of permitting the undersigned individual to spectate, participate in any way, or officiate in modeling activities at this Joe Nall Week Radio Control Event Sanctioned by the Academy of Model Aeronautics, beginning on the 7th day of May, 2021. The Undersigned hereby voluntarily waives, releases, discharges and relinquishes any and all claims, actions or causes of action for personal injury, property damage, or wrongful death occurring to him/her arising as a result of radio control modeling activities and any activities incidental thereto wherever or however the same may occur and for whatever period said event may continue, and the Undersigned does, for him/herself, his/her heirs, executors, administrations and assigns, release, discharge and relinquish any and all claims, actions or causes of action as just mentioned, which may hereafter arise for him/herself and for his/her estate, and agree that under no circumstances will he/she or his/her heirs, executors, administrators and assigns present any claim for personal injury, property damage or wrongful death against the Sponsor, Contest Director, any and all officials at the sanctioned event, the Club, any and all clubs involved in this event, the site owners, and/or any other site owners involved or sites used in this event, and/or their officers, agents, servants or employees for any and all said claims, actions, or causes of action, whether the same shall arise by negligence of any said persons, or otherwise.
I recognize that safety equipment and safety procedures used at such events are not totally effective in preventing injury or death, even when used and positioned according to instructions and common sense. While some level of protection is provided by safety equipment and safety procedures used at such events, there still remains the risk of injury or death. I understand that 2.4Ghz are the only radios allowed and may only be turned on at the flight line when it is my turn to fly. I also understand that I will be required to demonstrate “low idle” fail safe by turning off my transmitter and that a spotter will be required for all flights at all flight lines.
I am also aware that modeling may present hazards to participants and/or spectators as a result of any number of factors, including, but not limited to, unpredictable deviations from flight plans, the use of flammable liquids for fuels, equipment with numerous moving parts, and the uneven terrain over which modeling may occur.
IT IS THE INTENTION OF THE UNDERSIGNED SPECTATORS OR PARTICIPANTS, BY THIS DOCUMENT, TO EXEMPT AND RELIEVE THE CONTEST DIRECTOR, ANY AND ALL OFFICIALS AT THE SANCTIONED EVENT, THE CLUB, THE SITE OWNERS, AND THE ACADEMY OF MODEL AERONAUTICS, THEIR OFFICERS, AGENTS, SERVANTS, AND EMPLOYEES FROM ALL LIABILITY OF PERSONAL INJURY, PROPERTY DAMAGES AND/OR WRONGFUL DEATH CAUSED BY NEGLIGENCE.
This document is governed by South Carolina law. In the event one or more clauses are found to be ineffective, the remaining clauses shall remain enforceable.
By signing this document, I agree that I will abide by all rules and regulations of Triple Tree Aerodrome and the AMA.
