    Enacted January 1, 2018

    Whereas, in consideration of being permitted to attend a course involving firearms/archery, for the instruction in the use and safety of firearms/archery, and for the use of the owned, leased and/or borrowed land/properties (hereinafter the “Premises”) for the above purposes and including, but not limited to, range practice and hunting, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, the Undersigned agrees as follows:

    Undersigned agrees to indemnify, hold harmless and defend the Wadsworth District Conservation League ( “WDCL”) and the Wadsworth Hunt Club (“WHC”), and the respective directors, officers, volunteers, employees, agents and affiliates from any and all fault, liabilities, cost, expenses, claims, demands or lawsuits arising out of, related to or connected with: Undersigned’s presence at and/or participation in the course of instruction; the discharge of firearms or use of archery equipment by the Undersigned, the Undersigned’s presence on or use of the ranges, buildings, and/or Premises for any purpose; for any and all acts or omissions of Undersigned, and any damages arising from the Undersigned’s presence at and/or participation, including injuries to property, personal injuries or death to others caused by the Undersigned, whether or not as a result of the participation and use of firearms or archery equipment, the facilities and Premises, and regardless of whether such injuries result, in whole or in part, from the negligence of the League. Undersigned furthermore waives for himself/herself and for his/her guests, executors, personal representatives,
    administrators, assignees, heirs and next of kin, any and all rights and claims for damages, losses, demands and any other actions or claims whatsoever, which he/she may have or which may arise against the League, including but not limited to, the death of the Undersigned and/or any and all injuries, damages or illnesses suffered by Undersigned or Undersigned’s personal property (whether or not entrusted to the League); which may, in any way whatsoever, arise out of, be related to or connected with: the pursuit of firearms/archery instruction, range practice, hunting or other use of the Premises; and/or the discharge of firearms/archery products. The League shall not be liable for, and the Undersigned, on behalf of himself/herself and on behalf of his/her executors, personal representatives, administrators, assignees, heirs,
    and next of kin, hereby expressly releases the League from any and all such claims and liabilities regardless of whether such injuries result, in whole or in part, from the negligence of the League.

    Undersigned understands and acknowledges that the handling and discharge of firearms and use of archery equipment is inherently dangerous activity and hereby expressly assumes the risk of taking part in the course for instruction in use and safety of firearms/archery equipment and taking part in the activities on the Premises, which
    include, but are not limited to, instruction in the use of firearms/archery equipment, the discharge of firearms/archery equipment, the firing of live ammunition/arrows/bolts, and hunting therewith.
