I acknowledge, appreciate and agree with the following: 1) The risk of injury involved in the Events and related activities is significant, including the potential for permanent paralysis and death, and while particular rules, equipment, and personal discipline may reduce this risk, the risk of serious injury or death does exist; 2) I knowingly and freely assume all such risks, both known and unknown, even if arising from the negligence of the Releasees or others, and assume full responsibility for my participation in the Events and related activities; 3) I willingly agree to comply with the stated and customary terms for participation in the Events and related activities, however, if I observe any unusual significant hazard during my presence or participation, I will remove myself from participation and bring such to the attention of B.E.S.A.
