Accident waiver and release of liability

Event – Tenterfield Show 2018


I certify that I am physically fit, have sufficiently prepared or trained for participation in the Event, and have not been advised to not participate by a qualified medical professional. I certify that there are no health-related reasons or problems which preclude my participation in the Event.

I acknowledge and agree that Fairfax Media Limited and its related bodies corporate (Fairfax Group) are merely the promoters of a competition in relation to the Event, and are not the Event organisers or otherwise responsible for the conduct of the Event.

In consideration for accepting my entry into the Tenterfield Star Tenterfield Show Competition and permitting me to participate in this activity, I hereby take action for myself, my executors, administrators, heirs, next of kin, successors, and assigns as follows:

(A)   I WAIVE, RELEASE AND DISCHARGE from any and all liability, including but not limited to, liability arising from the any negligent or tortuous act or omission, breach of duty, breach of contract or breach of statutory duty of the entities or persons released, for my death, disability, personal injury, property damage, property theft, or actions of any kind which may hereafter occur to me including my travelling to and from this activity, THE FOLLOWING ENTITIES OR PERSONS: Fairfax Group and their directors, officers, employees, volunteers, representatives and agents;

(B)   INDEMNIFY, HOLD HARMLESS, AND UNDERTAKE NOT TO SUE the Fairfax Group and their directors, officers, employees, volunteers, representatives and agents from any and all liabilities or claims made as a result of participation in this activity, however caused.

I acknowledge that Fairfax Group and their directors, officers, volunteers, representatives, and agents are NOT responsible for the errors, omissions, acts, or failures to act of any party or entity conducting a specific activity on their behalf or for the actions of the Event organisers or any other person in connection with the Event.

I acknowledge that this activity may involve forceful physical contact with other players and participants and carries with it the potential for death, serious injury, and property loss. The risks include, but are not limited to, those caused by terrain, facilities, temperature, weather, condition of participants, equipment, lack of hydration, and actions of other people including, but not limited to, participants, volunteers, monitors, and/or producers of the activity. I acknowledge and agree that due to the nature of the Event, it would be unreasonable for the Fairfax Group to be in any way responsible for any injury to me or my death.

The Accident Waiver and Release of Liability Form shall be construed broadly to provide a release and waiver to the maximum extent permissible under applicable law.
