By agreeing to allow participation in this activity, you are acknowledging that you understand the potential risks of participation in this event and that you are releasing the event holders and sponsors from any liability related thereto in accordance with § 13-22-107, C.R.S.
The event holders and sponsors take great care to avoid any unnecessary risk to participants, but it is impossible to eliminate all risk or avoid all accidents. Working with live animals is inherently unpredictable and potentially dangerous. Reactions to strange sounds, surroundings, different handlers, and sudden movements cannot always be anticipated nor controlled. The handling of animals by other participants cannot always be anticipated nor controlled by the event holders or sponsors. Thus, there are always inherent risks to participation. Unforeseen circumstances can in rare circumstances result in serious injury and even possibly death.
Participation in this event is completely voluntary and by allowing participation you are acknowledging and agreeing to the following:
Assumption of Risk. I fully understand that participation in the Event may not only involve risk of serious injury or death, economic loss, property damage, or loss that may result from the participant’s own actions, inactions, or negligence, but also from the actions, inactions, or negligence of others, the condition of the facilities, equipment, or areas where the Event is being conducted, and the participant voluntarily agrees to assume this risk.
Covenant Not to Sue. The participant’s personal and legal representatives, heirs, successors, and next of kin will not make any claim against Douglas County, Colorado, or any of its present or former officials, employees, agents, attorneys, insurers, and representatives and their respective successors, heirs and assigns or any volunteer(s) (“Douglas County”), for injury, damage, death, or any other loss arising from or related to participation in the Event.
Release. The participant’s personal and legal representatives, heirs, successors, and next of kin, forever release, waive, discharge and relinquish Douglas County from any and all actions, causes of action, claims, charges, demands, losses, damages, costs, attorney’s fees, judgments, liens, indebtedness, and liabilities of every kind and character, whether known or unknown, including foreseen or unforeseen bodily injury and personal injuries and property damage that may be sustained by the participant in any way connected to, related to, or arising out of participation in the Event, regardless of any negligence of Douglas County.
I have read the ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF RISK & RELEASE OF LIABILITY STATEMENT and agree to assume all risk and release its sponsors and officials of all liability related to participation. I also give my permission for any sponsors and officials of the Douglas County Fair to obtain any necessary medical treatment for child.
