By submitting this Agreement and in exchange for the opportunity to participate in a League event, the undersigned (“Participant”) indicates that she or he has carefully read and understands AG & AG General Release, and acknowledges and agrees to all items, on behalf of Participant and her or his heirs, guardians, representatives, successors and assigns.
(a) Participant is at least 18 years of age, mentally competent and medically able to agree to the terms of this General Release. To the extent Participant is a minor, the parent or guardian listed below gives Participant permission to participate in a League event under the conditions stated within and signs on behalf of Participant. The individual signing below gives this General Release freely and knowingly with full understanding of its content and effect.
(b) Participant is legally permitted to possess and use firearms and other related equipment (“Firearms”), whether as part of a League event or otherwise, and is capable of using Firearms safely. The League does not provide guidance on the specific legality of skills learned at League events. Participant is responsible for determining the requirements of all applicable laws as they may relate to ownership, possession and use of firearms, and remaining in compliance with such requirements. Participant will follow the policies, procedures and rules of the League, including the policies, procedures and rules of the venue where the League event takes place. The League reserves the right to revoke Participant’s right to participate in a League event at any time for any reason.
(c) Participant has made a fully informed decision to participate in League events, understanding that inherent in the nature of such events and the use of Firearms is the potential of serious property damage and physical injury, up to and including death. Participant understands that the use of Firearms may involve risks (unforeseen or otherwise) and that Participant is responsible for her or his own safety and behavior, including but not limited to the use of appropriate personal protective equipment and refraining from the use of substances that may alter Participant’s mental state. Participant is under no obligation to attend or participate in any League event, and is permitted to decline participation or attendance or continued participation or attendance in a League event at any time for any reason.
(d) Participant waives, releases, and forever discharges any rights, claims, demands, or objections which Participant has or which afterwards may accrue to Participant against the League; its affiliates, sponsors, partners, or licensees; or any of its officers, directors, employees, facilitators, volunteers, agents, representatives, assigns or successors (past or present) (the “League Parties”), including for any physical injury, death or property damage, in connection with Participant’s participation in a League event, regardless of the cause of such rights, claims, demands, or objections. Participant understands that this General Release is intended to discharge, release and waive any and all claims, damages, and liabilities arising from her or his participation in a League event, even if such claims arise by the negligence of League Parties. Participant agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the League Parties from and against any claims, damages, and liabilities that Participant had or may have for personal injury, death, or property damage arising in any way from participation in a League event.
(e) The League may designate personnel to capture photographs and recordings of Participant during a League event (the “Media”). Participant consents to the League’s unlimited use of the Media for unlimited time in all print mediums, or other media of tangible expression (including the Internet and/or forms of social media), as the League may elect and without payment of royalties or other compensation to Participant. Participant waives the right to inspect or approve the finished materials in which the Media may be exhibited, published or distributed. All Media is owned by the League, and the League may register any copyrights or other intellectual property rights in the Media. To the extent Participant has any copyrights or other rights in the Media, such as a right of publicity, they are assigned to the League. Participant waives all rights or claims in any media or material using Participant’s name, photograph, voice persona or likeness contained in the Media. The League is only responsible for Media captured by its designated personnel; other participants in League events are responsible for obtaining their own permissions and Participant understand that the League has no control over these other participants.
(f) If any provision of this General Release is deemed invalid or unenforceable, it will not invalidate the remaining provisions of this General Release. The League’s failure to exercise any of its rights under this General Release does not prevent it from exercising such rights at a later date. This General Release contains the full and complete understanding of the League and Participant with regard to its subject matter and supersedes all prior agreements and understandings, cannot be modified except in writing signed by both Participant and an authorized representative of the League, and is governed in accordance with the laws of Texas, without regard to its conflict or choice of law provisions. This General Release will continue in effect even after termination of Participant’s participation in a League event. An electronic or facsimile signature will have the same force and effect as an original, non-facsimile signature.
