Having a TFAP and/or MSP and/or TSC employee present does not reduce the amount or severity of the risks or hazards of these Activities.
If I violate any TFAP, MSP or TSC rules I may have my pass revoked and be asked to leave the premises without refund.
I made a voluntary choice to participate in the Activities even though there are risks and dangers.

This release applies to claims resulting from anything which has happened up to now:

- that this agreement is legally binding on me, my heirs, executors, administrators and assigns; is governed by the laws of the State of Texas; and will be interprete to provide as broad and inclusive a release of liability as is legally permissible, but it is not intended to assert any claims or defenses that are prohibited by law;
