In consideration of being permitted to participate in curling draws, matches, bonspiels, and other athletic and non-athletic events which take place at the Club, whether in or outside of the Ice House (“Events”), I hereby grant permission and a perpetual, royalty-free, worldwide, sublicensable, and non-exclusive license to the Releasees to record, store, display, reproduce, copy, publish, perform, transmit, broadcast, distribute, sell, and otherwise use (“Permitted Uses”) at any time and in any type of media or manner my name, voice, image, likeness, actions, and “original works of authorship” (as that term is used in section 102 of the Copyright Law, Title 17 of the United States Code) appearing, seen, or heard in the Events. In connection with my participation in Events and the Permitted Uses, I hereby release any and all claims against the Releasees relating to, or arising out of, ownership, copyright, and rights of privacy and/or publicity.
I certify that I am at least eighteen (18) years of age and have the legal capacity to execute this Participant Release on my own behalf.
I hereby revoke any and all releases of liability, waivers, and indemnifications previously executed by me in favor of any of the Releasees.
BEFORE SIGNING BELOW, I WAS GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO READ THIS PARTICIPANT RELEASE AND TO CONSULT WITH AN ATTORNEY AS TO ITS SIGNIFICANCE. BY SIGNING BELOW, I UNDERSTAND THAT I AM WAIVING SIGNIFICANT RIGHTS. I UNDERSTAND THE MEANING OF THIS PARTICIPANT RELEASE AND THE RIGHTS I AM WAIVING. NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, I HAVE CHOSEN, OF MY OWN FREE WILL, TO EXECUTE THIS PARTICIPANT RELEASE.
Broomstones is committed to providing an environment free of unlawful harassment (including behavior of a verbal, physical, or sexual nature). The Club expects all members to be bound by the by-laws and rules of the Club. The Spirit of curling demands good sportsmanship and honorable conduct. This Spirit should influence the conduct of all participants on and off the ice. I will play the game with a spirit of good sportsmanship. I will conduct myself in an honorable manner both on and off the ice. I will never knowingly break a rule, but if I do, I will divulge the breach. I will take no action that could be interpreted as an attempt to intimidate or demean my opponents, teammates or officials. I will interpret the rules in an impartial manner, always keeping in mind that the purpose of the rules is to ensure that the game is played in an orderly and fair manner. I will humbly accept any penalty that the governing body at any level of curling deems appropriate, if I am found in violation of the Code of Ethics or rules of the game.
