3) This list in no way reflects the opinions or expertise of the Kansas Canoe Association, its members, any listed organization, or business entity.
4) The Trip Coordinator may refuse to allow a participant, based on reasonable grounds, but the responsibility for judging one's own qualifications lies solely with each individual trip member. 
5) By participating in an event, you release the referral club, its members, trip coordinator, and fellow participants from any injuries due to any negligent act or omission or to any intentional act intended to promote your well being.
