Liability Release and Promise Not to Sue

I understand that there are risks involved in participating in a mushroom foray and conference: all those risks one assumes with hiking in the woods, risks with eating wild mushrooms, risks of losing personal property, and all other expected and unexpected risks.

I release the Sonoma County Mycological Association (SOMA), their trustees, officers, employees, contractors, and all other persons assisting in the planning and presentation of this event from liability for any sickness, injury, or loss I, or any minor children under my care, may suffer during this event or as a result of attending and participating.

I further promise not to file a lawsuit or make a claim against any of the persons listed above, even if they negligently cause me or my minor children injury or loss.

Finally, I agree to hold SOMA harmless from any liability they may incur as a result of any damages to any property I may cause.

Also: The State of California and the California Department of Parks and Recreation is indemnified against any and all claims should the event associated with this permit need to be cancelled or postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak and/or pandemic.

This release and promise is part of the consideration I give in order to attend SOMA Forays. I understand it affects my legal rights. I intend it to apply not only to me but to anyone who may have this right to make a claim on my behalf.
