Acknowledgement of Risks and Obligations
Please read the following Disclaimer in full before submitting your application.
This acknowledgement of risks applies to all club activities I may undertake as a member of Span Outdoors Inc. In voluntarily participating in activities of Span which are described to me by the activity leaders I am aware that my participation in the activities may expose me to hazards and risks that could lead to injury, illness or death or to loss of or damage to my property. I also acknowledge that I may encounter weather conditions that could lead to hypothermia and/or dehydration and being in locations where evacuation for medical treatment may take hours or days. In particular when participating in abseiling or above the snowline activities I am aware that these activities could expose me to additional hazards and risks described to me by the activity leader.
To minimise risks I will endeavour to ensure that:
- The activity is within my capabilities and I am over 18 yrs,
- I am carrying food, water and equipment appropriate for the activity,
- I will advise the activity leader if I am taking any medication or have any physical or other limitation that might affect my participation in the activity,
- I will carry and use my medication as necessary,
- I will remain with the rest of the party during the activity and advise the leader of any concerns I am having,
- I will comply with all reasonable instructions of club officers and the activity leader,
- I will advise the leader if I suffer injury.
I have read and understand the above requirements. I have considered the risks before choosing to accept this acknowledgement of risk. I still wish to join the activities of the Club. I acknowledge that I will take responsibility for my own actions and that submitting my application and the payment of my subscription will be deemed as full acceptance and understanding of the above conditions.
