PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT, THEN GO BACK TO THE WEBSITE (YOU MAY NEED TO CLICK ON THE BFD WEBSITE TAB) AND CHECK THE BOX TO SHOW THAT YOU ACCEPT IT.
I hereby acknowledge that I have voluntarily chosen to participate in the activities of the Berkeley Folk Dancers. I recognize that folk dancing involves risks. I agree to accept any and all risks associated with the activities, including but not limited to property damage or loss, minor bodily injury, severe bodily injury, and death. I recognize that some risks may be created by the reckless conduct of other participants.
In consideration of my participation in folk dancing and to the fullest extent permitted by law, I agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Berkeley Folk Dancers, its members, including officers, directors, teachers, request night hosts, and other volunteers, as well as assignees, from and against all claims arising out of or resulting from my participation in folk dancing, unless the claim is caused by the sole negligence or willful misconduct of Berkeley Folk Dancers. “Claim” as used in this agreement means any financial loss, claim, suit, action, damage, or expenses, including but not limited to attorney’s fees or expenses attributable to bodily injury, sickness, disease or death, or injury to or destruction of tangible property including loss of use. I hereby voluntarily hold harmless Berkeley Folk Dancers, its members, officers, directors, teachers, request night hosts, and other volunteers and assignees from any and all claims that may be made by me, my family, estate, heirs or assignees.
If any portion of this acknowledgment of risk and hold harmless agreement is held invalid, I agree that the balance shall, notwithstanding, continue in full legal force and effect.
I agree that this acknowledgment of risk and hold harmless agreement is effective for as long as I participate in activities with Berkeley Folk Dancers.
