INDEMNITY

Peveril Rifle Club Ranges are inherently dangerous places, where live ammunition and munitions are used. Target equipment can cause injury if not used with care. Paths, steps and tracks can all he hazardous, especially in wet conditions. There are water hazards. The ranges use various maintenance equipment which can cause injury and there are material stores, some of which contain hazardous materials and electricity generating equipment. Live firing is inherently hazardous, particularly when hand assembled loads are used.

The Peveril Rifle Club takes all reasonable steps to mitigate and minimise such risks evidenced by the club rules and range rules, together with posted notices on the ranges and in various club rooms and premises. However it cannot obviate all risks In view of the increasing tendency to enter into litigation and claims for accidents the Peveril Rifle Club has no alternative but to require all members who wish to visit the ranges, whether or not to shoot, to fully indemnify the Peveril Rifle Club in respect of all personal injuries to themselves, their guests, spouses and children, animals and personal goods including vehicles. These conditions will be formally incorporated in rules and when memberships are renewed. In the meantime if you intend to visit the Ranges please complete and return the following declaration by post or by hand to the club secretary at the above address. In addition The Club advises and urges you to ensure that you are personally fully insured for all risks including personal liability should you be involved in an accident that could cause injury to a third party.

---ooOOoo---

I understand that Peveril Rifle Club Ranges are inherently hazardous locations and that activities I undertake there, including live firing, are at my own choice and freewill and are potentially dangerous. I understand these risks and expose myself to them in that knowledge. I accept that although Peveril Rifle Club has taken all reasonable steps to minimise hazards and risks, these cannot be eliminated. Therefore I fully indemnify the Peveril Rifle Club and all officers and committee members against all and any claims by me, by my guests, spouse, children or visitors introduced by me, or in respect of any property, howsoever caused.
