This Release and Indemnification Agreement (the “Agreement”) is entered into by and between the Western Pennsylvania Mushroom Club, as it is presently organized and may be later structured (“WPMC”) and the undersigned Member (the “Member”) on this ____ day of _____________________, 20__.
WHEREAS, WPMC is a non-profit educational organization that has as its principal purpose the sharing of mushroom-related information among its members; and
WHEREAS, all officers, directors, identifiers and members serve WPMC in a voluntary capacity and receive no remuneration for their services; and
WHEREAS, in cases where WPMC charges a fee for its forays, walks, lectures and other events (collectively “WPMC Events”), it is doing so only to cover its direct costs and does not operate in a for-profit capacity; and WHEREAS, the Member understands that there is inherent and unavoidable risk in outdoor activities relating to hunting and consuming wild mushrooms. These risks include but are not limited to the dangers of hiking in difficult terrain, the possibility of misidentifying a wild mushroom, and the possible allergic or toxic reaction that some individuals may have to otherwise edible mushrooms.
NOW THEREFORE, the Member hereby agrees to the following:
- The Member assumes all risks associated with WPMC Events. The Member expressly acknowledges that it is the Member’s sole responsibility to hike safely and to determine whether a wild mushroom may be consumed.
- The Member releases, holds harmless, and indemnifies the WPMC, its officers, directors, identifiers, and representatives from any and all liability relating to any injury or illness incurred by the Member or the Member’s family members as a result of participation in a WPMC Event.
This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. If any portion of the Agreement is declared for any reason to be invalid or unenforceable, such invalidity shall not affect any other provision of the Agreement. This Agreement shall apply to all WPMC events.
