                     ACTIVITY RELEASE FOR MEMBERS

When participating in on-site activities, at the Senior Center, I agree:

1. I am aware that while participating in a recreation activity or program offered by the City of Gaithersburg Depart-
   ment of Parks, Recreation and Culture, certain risks and dangers may be present, including, but not limited to, the
   hazards of traveling public highways, of accidents, of injury, of illness and the forces of nature.
2. I attest and verify that I have full knowledge of the risk involved in physical fitness activities and that I have ob-
   tained approval from my physician to participate in the same.
3. In consideration of the right to participate in the above referenced activities or programs and in further consider-
   ation of the arrangements made for me by the City of Gaithersburg through its Department of Parks, Recreation
   and Culture, I do hereby, on behalf of myself, my heirs, executors, administrators, and assigns, assume the above
   mentioned and all other risks, and do further release and hold harmless and indemnify the City of Gaithersburg
   and the Mayor and City Council of Gaithersburg and all of the City’s agents, officers and employees from any and
   all claims for injuries or loss to my person or property or to the person or property of third parties which may arise
   out of or result from my participation in the above referenced program or activity.
4. I further grant permission for a doctor to administer emergency treatment to me in the event that a medical emer-
   gency requires such treatment.
5. I consent to the City’s use of photographs taken or videotapes made of program participants.
6. The City reserves the right to rescind the membership of individuals incapable of complying with the Senior Center
   policies due to medical conditions beyond the individual’s control as observed by the Center staff.

When participating in any off-site activities I also agree:

1. To obey the rules and regulations for each activity, follow all directives and adhere to the agenda as outlined by
   the staff.
2. That if I do not clearly understand how an activity is performed or details of a trip, I will ask a staff member prior to
   the beginning of the program to clarify my questions.
3. To inform staff prior to the activity or trip if I have any problems meeting the physical requirements necessary for
   participation in the activity.
4. I agree to listen carefully to the details and timing of the trip and be fully prepared to meet and board the bus at the
   proper designated place and time. I understand that, in the City’s sole discretion, I may be responsible for paying
   any and all reasonable charges the City may incur as a result of my failure to meet and board the bus at the proper
   designated place and time.

Furthermore, I understand that as a participant of the program I will be expected to depart the Gaithersburg Upcounty
Senior Center and return to the said location with the group. Any deviation from the activity itinerary will preclude me
from participating in future trips, activities or other off-site adventures.

  with Disabilities Act. Requests must be made two weeks prior to the start of the program. Please indicate what
