Participant hereby releases, waives, discharges and covenants not to sue Pistons Parties from all liability to the undersigned for any and all loss, liability, damage, or cost and any and all claims or demands therefore on account of injury to the person or property of the undersigned, including death or illness, whether caused in whole or in part by the negligence of the Pistons Parties or otherwise, due to Participation. Participant further agrees to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless the Pistons Parties and their insurers from and against any and all damages, costs, judgments, and/or expenses (including but not limited to attorneys’ fees and other legal fees) they may incur as a result of claims made against them arising out of the Participation or any breach of this Permission and Release (including but not limited to breach of any representation or warranty contained herein).


The Participant further expressly agrees that the foregoing release is intended to be as broad and inclusive as is permitted by the law of the State of Michigan and that if any portion thereof is held invalid, it is agreed that the balance shall, notwithstanding, continue in full force and effect.


THE UNDERSIGNED HAS READ AND VOLUNTARILY SIGNS THIS RELEASE and further agrees that no oral representation, statement, or inducement apart from the foregoing written agreement have been made.


This Permission and Release specifically embraces each and every event sanctioned, authorized or promoted by the Pistons Parties at any time and applies to each and every event or activity hereinabove mentioned, and has the same effect as if executed before each and every activity or event in which the Participant participates.
