Acknowledgement and Assumption of Risk. I understand and acknowledge that (i) the sport of curling is
played on ice and requires physical fitness; (ii) I may be in close proximity to others with a risk that I could be
exposed to communicable disease while on or about the ice or other areas of the CCA Facility (defined
below); and (iii) there is a risk that I could suffer serious illness, injury or death as a result of participating in
curling or related activity. I represent and agree that I possess the necessary physical fitness, and I
understand and assume all risks associated with participating in curling and related activity in or about the
premises owned/leased and operated by Charlotte Curling Association (“CCA”) located at 6525 Old Statesville

National Curling Association (“GNCC”), (iii) the United States Curling Association (“USCA”), (iv) the respective
successors and assigns of each of CCA, GNCC and USCA, (v) the respective volunteers, members, employees,
officers and directors of each of CCA, GNCC and USCA, but only while acting in their capacity as such, and (vi)

judgments, expenses and liabilities, including without limitation attorneys fees and expenses of litigation, for
illness, personal injury, death or property damage arising from or related to my participation in curling or
other activity or programs in or about the CCA Facility, or otherwise conducted by CCA, prior to the Expiration
Date. “Expiration Date” means the date which is one (1) calendar year after the date this Release is signed. I

may sustain while on the CCA Facility or participating in curling or other activity or programs.
Indemnification. I hereby agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless the Parties from and against any
third party losses, damages, actions, suits, claims, judgments, settlements, awards, interest, penalties,
expenses (including reasonable attorneys fees) and costs of any kind for any personal injury, loss of life or
damage to property sustained by reason of or arising out of my involvement in curling or related activity or
my use of the CCA Facility, whether caused by negligence of the Parties or otherwise.

activities of any participant or spectator, or any other person within the CCA Facility. The Parties assume no

Communicable Disease. I agree to strictly follow all rules and procedures from time to time established by
CCA to reduce the risk of exposure to communicable diseases. I also understand that there is no guarantee
