Liability Waiver Agreement – Southern Utah Rock Club (SURC)
I willingly acknowledge and assume all potential risks and responsibilities associated with my participation in any Southern Utah Rock Club (SURC) sanctioned or unsanctioned field trip, SURC-related activity, or utilization of the club shop. This includes, but is not limited to, accidents, injuries, illnesses, and encounters with wildlife or acts of nature/God.
I absolve Southern Utah Rock Club (SURC), its members, and officers of any liability arising from my actions or the actions of other individuals before, during, or after any field trip, activity, or use of the club shop. I am solely accountable for my safety and conduct and will take precautionary measures to mitigate risks to myself and fellow participants, particularly minors under my care.
Recognizing my individual responsibility, I understand that I alone can determine my limits regarding hiking, mining, physical activities, etc. When utilizing my own vehicle or riding with other participants, I am aware that I assume these risks voluntarily.
This waiver extends to visits to private, federal, state, and local lands, as well as inactive and abandoned mines. I am also committed to providing proper food/water, safety gear, and equipment for myself and others under my care.
I pledge to comply with all federal, state, and local laws, as well as club rules during any SURC-sanctioned or unsanctioned field trip, activity, or use of the club shop.
I commit to a zero-tolerance policy towards littering and will not engage in any activities that involve chasing, harassing, hurting, or killing wildlife, unless their actions pose a threat to myself or others.
This waiver is binding for all members and guests attending SURC field trips, activities, or using the club shop. Minors must be accompanied by a legal guardian or adult chaperone appointed by a legal guardian.
By completing this form, I affirm my agreement to the Field Trip Liability Waiver.
I acknowledge that membership is valid for one year from payment and that no refunds will be issued in the case of early cancellation, including expulsion from the club due to violations, relocations, or unforeseen circumstances.
I am responsible for ensuring my membership dues are current before utilizing the club shop or participating in rockhounding trips.
I also acknowledge that I will automatically be signed up for club communication via email.
