Policies - Please Read Carefully
HCC MAKES NO CLAIM TO THE SUITABILITY OF THE TRIP/EVENT OR THE RELIABILITY OF THE ORGANIZER(S).
Trips and events are organized by individual members for the benefit of members and invited guests of the Houston Canoe Club, Inc. (HCC) and the American Canoe Association (ACA). Guests are asked to join the club after one trip.
Please note that HCC does not sanction trips. A "Sanctioned Trip" refers to a trip or event that meets all requirements to be covered by ACA liability insurance.
Non-ACA members are required to pay $5.00 per person (child or adult) for each ACA sanctioned trip or event. This fee is sent directly to the ACA for liability insurance.
The coordinator of each trip or event reserves the right to limit the size of the group or to refuse participation to anyone who does not possess the skill levels or safety equipment required for that trip. Trip coordinators are volunteers and merely organize the trip for the convenience of the participants and do not make any warranties of safety. Although we stress ACA safety guidelines, paddling contains unforeseen risks, and participants are ultimately responsible for their own safety.
A Waiver of Liability will be required to be signed by all participants of ACA sanctioned trips and events.
