8) MEDICAL: Customer shall obtain a physical from a licensed medical doctor and receive clearance to participate in the Tour
at least 120 days before the Start Date. The customer agrees to execute all documents, including but not limited to HIPAA
authorizations and other releases, and to provide any and all permissions to allow TAI to determine that the Customer has
complied with this requirement. If Customer has special needs, including but not limited to special dietary restrictions,
medications, limitations arising from physical or mental disability, limitations arising from bodily injury or illness, or
otherwise, Customer agrees to inform TAI of such limitation or special needs, in writing, at least 120 days prior to the Start
Date. If such needs, requirements, or limitations arise after such time, then Customer agrees to notify TAI, in writing, within
24 hours of the time that Customer becomes aware of same. TAI cannot and DOES NOT guarantee that it will
accommodate all special needs that a given customer may have. Customers should make every effort to notify TAI of any
and all such conditions, requirements, or limitations before finalizing any booking to ensure that TAI is able to
accommodate those needs. Customer agrees that, at all times during which Customer participates in the Tour, including but
not limited to with respect to preparations for departure, Customer shall strictly adhere to any and all medical advice
rendered by any of Customer’s treating doctors, mental or physical therapists, nutritional counselors, psychologists,
psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, or any other duly licensed or qualified medical professional providing or that has provided
treatment to Customer. The customer shall take no action contrary to such advice. Customer acknowledges that Customer
knows and understands that TAI does not employ licensed medical doctors or other persons qualified to provide medical
advice and has no knowledge or expertise with respect to medical issues that may arise from or during Customer’s
participation in the Tour. By signing this Agreement, Customer represents and warrants that Customer has not relied and
will not rely on any express or implied statement or representation of TAI with respect to Customer’s medical history or
current health or fitness, including but not limited to whether such medical history or current health or fitness makes any
aspect of Customer’s participation in the Tour safe or unsafe.
9) TRUTH AND DETERMINATION: By signing this Agreement, Customer further represents and warrants that Customer has
provided true and accurate information to TAI with respect to Customer’s medical history, fitness, and readiness for
participation in the Tour, and Customer shall immediately notify TAI of any and all medical issues, including but not limited
to sickness, pain, or injury, that occur after Customer signs this Agreement regardless of whether such issues arise from or
during the course of Customer’s participation in the Tour. Customer acknowledges that TAI may use the information
provided by Customer to make internal determinations as to whether Customer has complied with the requirements of this
Agreement or is fit to participate in the Tour. Still, TAI’s assessment is for internal purposes only, is not made through the
use of any expert training or skill, is not intended to be relied upon by Customer in any way whatsoever, including but not
limited to safety-related determinations, and that it is the SOLE RESPONSIBILITY of Customer to ensure that Customer’s
participation in the Tour is consistent with the advice of Customer’s medical doctors and other professionals, as well as
consistent with Customer’s mental, physical, and emotional fitness.
10) RISK: Customer acknowledges that activities that are part of the tour, including but not limited to those activities in which
Customer shall participate as part of Customer’s participation in the Tour, have risks. Those risks include serious or
catastrophic injury and death. Even if those risks can be mitigated, those risks cannot be eliminated, even through the
exercise of due care. The customer fully understands these risks. Before signing this Agreement, the Customer has
discussed these risks with the Customer’s treating physicians and other medical professionals. The customer knows that
these risks cannot be eliminated. The customer understands that these risks are serious and real. Nevertheless, the
Customer desires to sign this Agreement to participate in the Tour. BY SIGNING THIS AGREEMENT, THE CUSTOMER
KNOWINGLY AND OF CUSTOMER’S OWN FREE WILL WAIVES, ON BEHALF OF CUSTOMER AND CUSTOMER’S HEIRS OR
ASSIGNS, ANY AND ALL CLAIMS THAT CUSTOMER MAY HAVE AGAINST TAI OR ITS AGENTS, EMPLOYEES, OR
REPRESENTATIVES RELATED TO ANY INJURY, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO SERIOUS INJURY AND DEATH, THAT
CUSTOMER SUSTAINS AS A RESULT OF ANYTHING OTHER THAN TAI’S GROSS NEGLIGENCE, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
TO CLAIMS FOR ACTUAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, PECUNIARY DAMAGES, OR DAMAGES FOR
PAIN AND SUFFERING ARISING FROM ANY SUCH INJURY OR DEATH. THIS WAIVER SHALL SURVIVE AND CONTINUE IN
EFFECT AFTER THE TERMINATION OF THIS AGREEMENT.
11) INDEMNIFICATION: In addition to the waivers provided above, Customer agrees to indemnify and hold TAI harmless for any
and all injury of any nature whatsoever, including but not limited to any breach of this Agreement, actually and proximately
resulting from any act of God, natural disaster, the act of war, the act of terrorism, or any other events or circumstances not
within the reasonable control of TAI, regardless of whether such event is similar or dissimilar to any of the preceding. The
agreements of this release and indemnification above include claims arising in whole or in part from negligent (but not
grossly negligent, reckless, or intentionally wrong) acts or omissions, and all other claims, including for personal injury,
wrongful death, property damage, products liability (including strict liability), breach of contract or warranty, or otherwise.
The agreements are intended to be enforced to the fullest extent allowed by law and to be binding on the Customer as a
participant and parent or guardian of a minor participant individually and on behalf of the minor.

Customer agrees to pay for all costs associated with such care and related transportation.
13) LOCAL ACCOMMODATIONS: Customer understands that the quality of lodgings and meals is subject to local conditions of
the region or country in which this event takes place, and neither TAI nor its representatives are responsible for any injury,
illness, theft, assault, or damage which Customer may suffer as a result of using recommended lodgings or restaurants.
14) TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS/COVID: All issues associated with passports, passport control, and visas are the customer’s
responsibility, not of TAI. Compliance with COVID restrictions is the Customer’s responsibility. TAI holds no responsibility
for the Customer’s inability to participate in a tour based on COVID protocols at the tour’s location. Obeying traffic laws
and laws of other countries is the customer’s responsibility. TAI is under no obligation to help or assist with any legal issues
arising out of any solitary individual criminal act. Damages to any equipment brought personally or rented are the

16) GOVERNANCE: This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of North Carolina without regard to the choice of
law jurisprudence of that State. No presumption shall apply in the interpretation of this Agreement that requires
ambiguities to be resolved against the drafter of the Agreement. Venue for any action arising out of the negotiation,
execution, formation, performance, termination, or other aspect or incident of this Agreement shall lie exclusively in the
state courts located in Union County, North Carolina, and TAI and Customer hereby irrevocably consent to the exercise of
any such court’s jurisdiction over their persons in any such action. If any court of competent jurisdiction determines that
any part of this Agreement is void or unenforceable because of law or policy, such portion shall be deemed severed, and
the remainder of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect. This Agreement is the sole agreement by and
between TAI and Customer concerning its subject matter. There are no promises, warranties, or guarantees by and
between TAI and the Customer except as expressly set forth herein.
