Club Safety Program

  1. Combat Rules
    1. Liability
      1. Fighters: Each fighter is required to sign a Combat-Related Activities Waiver (an authorization waiver). This waiver is to be on file with the secretary of the club. The fighter, having been given instruction as to the possibility of physical injury to himself or others, and been given a primary lesson in safety and rules of the field, will honor the rules and conventions of the HRFC and its various sister organizations. Anyone unwilling to sign the waiver WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE IN PRACTICES OR AT TOURNAMENTS OR WARS!
      2. Other Participants: other participants include Marshals, Constables, List Pages, Heralds, and other officers whose activities bring them in close contact to fighting in situations where boundaries are not clearly defined. Anyone in the overall boundaries of the battle area must receive basic field safety orientation, and MUST sign a Combat-Related Activities Waiver (an authorization waiver).
