Insurance & Waivers

As a reputable operator I have $2 million of liability insurance, just in case, and you should always check operators are properly insured.

At the start of each session I explain the rules and emphasise the main risk involved, which in my experience is being hit with a tagger in the excitement.

The insurance company insists that there are "inherent risks and dangers that may cause serious injury and death", but in 10 years of operation the most serious injuries sustained have been a badly sprained ankle and the usual odd cuts and scrapes you pick up playing anything outdoors.

Regardless, I'm supposed to get signed waivers from everyone, so on the right is an email form that confirms you've read the following, and on the left are links to the paper version, both in Microsoft Word and Apache OpenOffice.

Apache is like Microsoft Office, but free and opens just about anything. You can get it at www.openoffice.org
