 Liability Release and Promise Not to Sue

I understand there is some risk in participating in a mycology foray or other activity -- all those risks one assumes by being away from home, risks associated with moving about in fields and woods, risks involved in eating wild mushrooms, risks of losing personal property by theft or misplacement, and all other expected and unexpected risks.

In joining the Missouri Mycological Society (MOMS) or registering for or attending any MOMS mycology foray or other activity, I agree to assume total responsibility during an event for my own safety and well-being and that of any minor children under my care, and for the protection of my and their personal property.

I release The Missouri Mycological Society (MOMS), its directors, officers, volunteers, contractors, and all other persons assisting in the planning and presentation of a MOMS mycology foray or other activity from liability for any sickness, injury, or loss, I, or any minor children under my care, may suffer during a MOMS mycology foray or other activity or as a result of attending or 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 any minor children under my care injury or loss.

Finally, I agree to hold The Missouri Mycological Society (MOMS) harmless from any liability it may incur as a result of any damage to any property I may cause. This release and promise is part of the consideration I give in order to participate in a MOMS mycology foray or other activity. I understand it affects my legal rights. I intend it to apply not only to me but to anyone who may have the right to make a claim on my behalf.

This liability release and promise not to sue remains in effect until revoked. All adults in a family membership are required to agree with this waiver before they are allowed to join the Missouri Mycological Society.
