    This is a release. Read it carefully and sign below.
    I, the undersigned, hereby acknowledge that I have voluntarily chosen to go on this whitewater rafting trip with W.E.T.-W.E.T. River Trips, LLC-Whitewater Expeditions & Tours-raftwet.com. I know and fully understand that a whitewater rafting trip, whether on a raft, an oarboat, a kayak, or any other type of vessel, is an outdoor adventure activity with inherent risks and hazards where serious accidents can occur, participants can die, sustain injuries, and property damage. I acknowledge and willingly assume all risks and hazards in whitewater rafting and river related camping, including but not limited to, loss of control of the raft, collision with other participants, rocks, trees, and any portion of the interior of the raft, other rafts, and any other manmade or natural obstacles, where they are obvious or not; submersion in water, drowning, encounters with animals, wildlife and insects, exposure to extreme temperatures and inclement weather, wilderness terrain and unavailability of immediate medical attention in case of injury. Risks and dangers may arise from foreseeable or unforeseeable causes including, but not limited to, guide decision making, including that a guide may misjudge terrain, weather, trail or river route location, and water level, risks of falling out of or drowning while in a raft, canoe or kayak and such other risks, hazards and dangers that are integral to recreational activities that take place in a wilderness, outdoor or recreational environment; and by my participation in these activities and/or use of equipment, I hereby assume all risks and dangers and all responsibility for any losses and/or damages, whether caused in whole or in part by the negligence or other conduct of the Pacific Gas and Electric Company, Placer County Water Agency, Sacramento Municipal Utility District, owners, agents, officers or employees of W.E.T.-W.E.T.

Use of foot cups is totally voluntary. Finally, I understand that Class IV and V represent the most difficult and dangerous levels of whitewater and recognize that the risks associated with whitewater rafting are increased,.
