Let’s be honest . . . we’re building cardboard boats and actually putting them in the water with the hopes that they float or sink in spectacular fashion! The lawyers had a thing or two to say about it and if you want to participate, you have to agree to these terms . . .
In consideration for the acceptance of participation in the event, each participant (including, but not limited to, boaters, spectators, vendors, and the like) releases and forever discharges Clermont Cardboard Classic, Lake County Rowing Association, the City of Clermont, their officers, directors, agents, volunteers and employees; and all sponsors, producers, their agents, representatives, successors and assigns; of all liabilities, suits, claims, actions, damages, costs or expenses which the undersigned may have against any of them arising out of or in any way connected with their participation of the Clermont Cardboard Classic, including loss or damage to person or property, travel to or from this event, any injuries (including broken bones, drowning, or even death) which may be suffered by the undersigned in connection with the event. This waiver includes any claims based on negligence, action or inaction of any of the above parties.
Each participant also agree to abide by all rules and regulations of Lake County Rowing Association and understands that the fees for participation in this event are non-refundable, even if the event is canceled due to rain, a natural disaster, or any other unforeseen problem, which Lake County Rowing Association deems appropriate to warrant cancellation of the event. In the event the boat race is cancelled, each participant will be given credit to use at the next Cardboard Boat Race hosted by Lake County Rowing Association.
By registering and/or participating in this event, each individual on site agrees to the use of his or her name, image, and/or likeness for purposes of commercial promotion of the Clermont Cardboard Classic and all other activities conducted by the Lake County Rowing Association, without fee, regardless of what monies are made or raised by Lake County Rowing Association through the use of said name, image, and/or likeness.
