I am not under the influence of any illicit or prescription drugs which would in any way impair my ability to serve as a Volunteer for the Event. I am submitting this release, waiver of liability, and assumption of risk declaration voluntarily and of my own free will.
  2. I agree that it is my responsibility to be familiar with and to abide by the Rules and Regulations established for the Event.

I understand that these Risks may be caused in whole or in part by my own actions or inactions, the actions or inactions of others serving or participating in the Event, or the negligent acts or omissions of the Released Parties defined below, and I hereby expressly assume all such Risks and responsibility for any damages, liabilities, losses or expenses which I incur as a result of my participation as a Volunteer at the Event.

I further agree that if, despite this Agreement, I, or anyone on my behalf, makes a claim for Liability against any of the Released Parties, I will indemnify, defend and hold harmless each of the Released Parties from any such Liabilities which any may be incurred as the result of such claim.
