I HEREBY RELEASE ALL OF THE FOLLOWING PERSONS & ENTITIES FROM ALL LIABILITY FOR THEIR ASSERTED NEGLIGENCE THAT CAUSES INJURY TO ME WHILE I AM VISITING THE PROPERTY, EVEN IF THE INJURIES ULTIMATELY CAUSE OR CONTRIBUTE TO CAUSE MY DEATH:
- MCKC, MCKC’S DIRECTORS, OFFICERS & MEMBERS, THE OWNER(S) & LESSOR(S) & MANAGER(S) OF THE PROPERTY, THE OTHER PARTICIPANTS ON MY TRIP(S) TO THE PROPERTY & THE TRIPS’ LEADER(S), AND ALL OTHER PEOPLE & ENTITIES WHO PARTICIPATE IN EFFORTS TO ASSIST ME IF I AM INJURED ON THE PROPERTY.
I ALSO HEREBY ASSUME THE RISK OF BEING INJURED WHILE ON THE PROPERTY. Some of the most common potential risks of entering the property are slipping, tripping, falling, hypothermia, drowning, dehydration, getting lost or stuck, and rocks falling or shifting.
CELL PHONES DO NOT WORK IN CAVES. CONSEQUENTLY, IF I AM INJURED WHILE IN THE CAVE, ANY RESCUE AND EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE WILL ALMOST CERTAINLY BE SUBSTANTIALLY DELAYED.
If I enter the cave on the property, I agree to wear a suitable helmet to protect my head and to follow all other basic caving safety practices.
