CLAIMS AND LITIGATION WAIVER: I understand that participating in this event is potentially hazardous, and that I should not enter and participate unless I am medically able and properly trained. In consideration of the acceptance of this entry, I assume full and complete responsibility for any injury or accident which may occur while I am traveling to or from the event, during the event, or while I am on the premises of the event. I also am aware of and assume all risks associated with participating in this event, including but not limited to falls, contact with other participants, effect of weather, traffic, and conditions of the road. I, for myself and my heirs and executors, hereby waive, release and forever discharge the event organizers, sponsors, promoters, the University of Okoboji, Arnolds Park Amusement Park, the Iowa Great Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce and representatives, successors and assigns, and all other persons associated with the event, for all liabilities, claims, actions, or damages that I may have against them arising out of or in any way connected with my participation in this event. I understand that this waiver includes any claims, whether caused by negligence, the action or inaction of any of the above parties, or otherwise. I understand the above waiver places any and all financial burden from injury to death, upon myself. If I am uninsured or underinsured, I understand that my financial risk of any injury during participation in Oktoberfest is even greater. Finally, in accepting full responsibility for any accident, injury or death, I bar my insurance company from seeking subrogation of claims on my behalf. My registration affirms my voluntary decision to take part in Oktoberfest and to be forever bound by the above Waiver of Claims and Litigation.
