WAIVER Of CLAIMS AND NOTICE OF MEMBERSHIP AND ATTENDANCE REQUIREMENTS
Desert Adventures, Inc. (DA) is a tax exempt, non-profit Corporation operating in the State of Arizona. Fees, donations, contributions, or payments made to DA are not deductible for income tax purposes. The fees charged members, non-members and guests who participate in the activities organized and conducted by DA are collected only to defray the operating cost of the corporation. DA does not, nor does it intend to, insure the safety or health of the participants who attend any of the functions organized, conducted or sponsored by DA. DA would be required to significantly increase the charges and fees for its activities in order to purchase this type of insurance. By the execution of this document, I hereby waive any and all rights that I may have to make a claim for damages, expenses or costs against DA for any injuries that I might suffer while participating in any DA event and do hereby for myself, my heirs, executors, administrators, successors and assigns release, acquit, exonerate and forever discharge DA, its heirs, executors, administrators, successors and assigns from all claims, actions, causes of actions, demands, rights, damages, costs, expenses and attorney's fees or other compensation whatsoever that I might incur as a result of participating in a DA sponsored event. I further understand that I am fully responsible for obtaining any and all appropriate insurance coverage for myself and that I am fully responsible for my own medical and insurance expenses.
Membership and attendance in DA is restricted to those people 21 years of age or older, although some exceptions may apply. This restriction is necessitated by the laws of the State of Arizona governing the use and consumption of alcoholic beverages. Please consult an officer of DA for complete details of the membership age and attendance, restrictions and requirements.
By the execution of this document, I hereby grant permission for my picture to be included in any group photograph of events or activities sponsored by DA and printed in the newsletter. My last name or phone number shall not be used in any publication unless authorized by me.
All information indicated on this application must be provided in full (unless otherwise noted) or your application may be returned. Your occupation is being requested only as a means to determine if any services which DA periodically contracts for may be available through our members. The membership list and mailing list of DA, including all information contained therein, is held in the strictest confidence and is not sold or provided to anyone. Only elected officers, and certain appointed officers, are provided with a copy of the membership list and those copies are closely held. Officers holding copies of the membership list may not provide anyone (including members, but excluding trip leaders, as required) with any information involving other members.
By the execution of this document (the final step being the completion of the membership purchase via online payment): (1) I agree to abide by the by-laws, rules and regulations, as established from time to time by Desert Adventures, Inc.; (2) I have read and fully understand the requirements indicated in the information contained in this application; (3) I affirm that I am at least 21 years of age.
