DOD Waiver and Release of Liability
Now that the DOD is an official IMBA chapter, we have certain legal obligations. One of these obligations is to make sure anyone attending a DOD sponsored ride or event signs a waiver and release of liability. We'll have forms to sign at all future events but you can also download the yearly form below, sign it, bring it to the next DOD ride and be covered for all rides for the rest of the year. Thanks for not whining too much about having to do this.
