I know that entering the cardboard regatta is a potentially hazardous activity. I should not enter and event unless I am medically able and properly trained. I agree to abide by any decision of race officials relative to my ability to safely complete the boat race. I assume all risks associated with the cardboard regatta event including, but not limited to: falls, contact with other participants, becoming lost, injured, drowning, injuries or illness from animals, disease, or plants, the effects of weather and all risks associated with event participation. Having read this waiver and knowing these facts and in consideration of you accepting my entry, I, for myself and anyone entitled to act on my behalf, waive and release the Crystal Lake Park District, Crystal Lake Cardboard Regatta, The Crystal Lake Parks Initiative Foundation, Ornery Mule Racing and all race officials, volunteers and agents, all sponsors, their representatives and successors from all claims or liabilities of any kind arising out of my participation in this event even though that liability may arise out of negligence or carelessness on the part of the persons named in this waiver. The race denies entry to anyone that has had a protection order keeping them from the RD, or any volunteer or race official. If you know you fall in this category, do not register- we will not issue you a refund and will deny entry. Athletes who do not follow course rules, general good sportsmanship or race day guidelines put forth by the race director’s will face potential disqualification and loss of eligibility for future events. The race directors and their contracted partners, reserve the right to use photos taken during the event for webcast, current and future promotion online and in social media. I understand that race registration fees are not refundable under any circumstance, race registrations are not transferable to other participants or to a future years event. Please consider these factors carefully before completing your registration.
