If you didn't know already, we play sports at these meetups -- so there is a lot of physical activity involved.
Sometimes we play at Cal Anderson park and sometimes people trip, slip, fall down, run into each other, and other unpleasantries. People will be tagging you with two hands and running at you full speed. Bumps and bruises happen, it's part of the game. We also play at Volunteer Park, which can be dark at night, muddy and slippery, there are low hanging tree branches here and there, there are stumps, there are some rocks, there are picnic tables that you might run into, and people will be tagging you with two hand touch while running at you full speed. And lastly, we play at many other parks and locations throughout the Puget Sound Area. These all have the same hazards that are listed above.
By showing up to these events, you understand that there is a chance you could slip, hit your head, sprain an ankle, lose or break personal property, and lots of other unpleasant stuff. By showing up to these events, you agree that injuries, lost items, broken items, or anything other unpleasantries are not the fault of the organizers, and you alone are responsible. We don't want to scare you, these events are really fun and enjoyable for everyone. Let's keep it that way... with a basic understanding of liability. In the end, we live in a world with too many lawyers, so we're writing this here to be extra clear about these events.
Thanks so much!
