Participating in Montreal Outrigger Paddling Club activities involve risks, dangers and hazards. For example, a boat could capsize or boats could collide in good or bad weather. A paddler can drown or get hypothermia. An approved personal flotation device ("PFD") must be worn by all participants at all times while on the water. Any Montreal Outrigger Paddling Club member or drop in participant that does not wear a PFD acknowledges that the decision to wear or not wear a PFD is their own. I am aware that by participating in Montreal Outrigger Paddling Club activities I am risking personal injury, death, or damage to property. I accept and assume those risks.
