(together with its subsidiaries, and its shareholders, directors, officers, employees, volunteers, and agents of Live Edge Axe Throwing Ltd., and their respective administrators, executors, successors, and assigns; all of the foregoing being hereinafter collectively referred to as the “RELEASEES”
WARNING! PARTICIPATION IN THE ACTIVITY OF AXE AND KNIFETHROWING, THE USE OF AXES, KNIVES, AND THROWING EQUIPMENT, OR SPECTATING WHILE OTHERS THROW AXES OR KNIVES (“THE ACTIVITY”) ENTAILS KNOWN AND UNANTICIPATED RISKS THAT COULD RESULT IN PHYSICAL AND/OR EMOTIONAL INJURY, PARALYSIS, DISMEMBERMENT, DEATH OR OTHER DAMAGE TO YOURSELF AND/OR OTHERS.
As with all activities, there are inherent risks of injury at Live Edge Axe Throwing Ltd. Inherent risks are those risks that cannot be eliminated without changing the nature of the Activity. Some risks include, but are not limited to:
A. General facility risks: slips, falls, or trips due to uneven pavement or flooring, wet, icy, or slippery surfaces, or items left on the floor; falling target and/or construction components.
B. Human error risks: erratic or negligent actions; failure to follow instructions, inadvertent inattentiveness, incorrect throwing or playing techniques, errors in judgment, failure to adequately train participants, errant axe or knife throwing, judgment errors in emergency care, and inadequate emergency training of personnel.
C. Axe and knife throwing risks: being hit by an axe or knife – thrown, swung or held – due to participant or staff inattentiveness, neglect, failure to follow instructions, incorrect or errant throwing or playing techniques, errors in judgment, inadequate training, or purposeful or accidental assault and battery by a participant.
D. Types of Injury: All participants must understand three categories of injuries that may occur as a result of these inherent risks. The most common are minor injuries, which include, but are not limited to, hand injuries (splinters, calluses, skin tears, pinches, punctures, and cuts), bruises and scrapes, and muscle strains. Major injuries include, but are not limited to, lacerations, broken bones, joint/ligament/tendon injuries, internal injuries, concussions, back injuries, and eye injuries. Catastrophic injuries, though very rare, include but are not limited to: loss of vision or hearing, dismemberment, permanent disabilities, heart attack, stroke, paralysis, or death.
Please read carefully and be certain you understand the implications of signing.

I fully understand and acknowledge the inherent risks associated with the throwing of, or use of, axes or knives of any size or kind; the potential dangerous nature associated with the throwing of, or use of, axes or knives of any size, or kind; the potential hazardous risks associated with the throwing of, or use of, axes or knives of any size, or kind; and/or the potentially dangerous environment that can be caused to myself, and/or to others, from the misuse, or throwing of axes or knives of any kind, or size.
B. I acknowledge and understand that I will be voluntarily engaging in activities that involve axes and/or knives, which may result in the risk of serious injury, scarring, loss of an important bodily function,
permanent disability, or death, and may cause severe social or economic losses due to not only my own actions, inaction or negligence, but also to the action, inaction or negligence of others, or conditions of the premises or of any equipment used. Further, I acknowledge that there may be other risks not known to me or not reasonably foreseeable at this time.
C. I acknowledge that the Activity requires a certain degree of fitness, co-ordination and physical dexterity. I acknowledge and warrant to Live Edge Axe Throwing Ltd. that I am medically fit to participate in the Activity.
