IN CONSIDERATION OF MY VOLUNTARY PARTICIPATION IN North American Manure Expo on August 9-10, 2023, I UNDERSTAND THAT I AM BEING ASKED TO CAREFULLY READ EACH OF THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPHS AND BY REGISTERING FOR A TOUR, REGISTERING TO ATTEND THE EXPO DAYS AND WATCHING ANY EQUIPMENT DEMONSTRATIONS, I KNOWINGLY ASSUME ALL RISKS, AM RESPONSIBLE FOR MY OWN SAFETY AND AGREE TO THE TERMS LISTED.
Assumption of Risks:
I understand that the bleacher wagon ride, by its very nature, includes certain inherent risks that cannot be eliminated regardless of the care taken to avoid injuries. Some of these involve falls and trips. The specific risks vary, but range from: 1) minor injuries such as scrapes, scratches, bumps, and bruises, to 2) major injuries such as broken bones, concussion, heart attack, paralysis, to 3) catastrophic injuries including death. I understand and appreciate the risks that are inherent in the above-listed programs and activities. I hereby assert that my participation is voluntary and that I knowingly assume all such risks. I further understand that I am ultimately responsible for my own safety.
Hold Harmless, Indemnity and Release:
In consideration of permission to participate in the bleacher wagon ride, I agree, for myself, my heirs, personal representatives or assigns, to defend, hold harmless, indemnify and release, Annex Business Media, Manure Manager, North American Manure Expo, Professional Nutrient Applicators Association (PNAAW), PO Box 157, Sauk City, WI 53483, Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin System, its officers, employees, and agents, from and against any and all claims, demands, actions, or causes of action of any sort on account of damage to personal property, or personal injury, or death which may result from my participation in the above-listed activity. This release includes claims based on the negligence of any sponsor and its officers, employees, agents, and volunteers, but expressly does not include claims based on their intentional misconduct or gross negligence. I understand that by agreeing to this clause I am releasing claims and giving up substantial rights, including my right to sue.
Consent for Emergency Treatment:
I authorize UW-Arlington Agricultural Research Station and Annex Business Media administrators, and its designated representatives to consent, on my behalf, to any emergency medical/hospital care or treatment to be rendered upon the advice of any licensed physician. I agree to be responsible for all necessary charges incurred by any hospitalization or treatment rendered pursuant to this authorization. I understand that this coverage is not provided to me by the University or Annex Business Media.
I recognize and acknowledge that the University may record my participation and appearance on any recorded medium including, but not limited to video, audio, photos (collectively, “recordings”) for use in any form (including, but not limited to print, websites, blogs, internet, and social media). I authorize such recording and release the University to use my name, likeness, voice, and biographical material to exhibit or distribute such recordings in whole or in part without restrictions or limitations for any educational or promotional purpose.
