The West Branch Paddle Club (WBPC) and, by extension, the Susquehanna Greenway Partnership (SGP) encourages paddling on the West Branch and will provide resources and recommendations as requested, but takes no responsibility for participants as they journey out on the river. All participants take the responsibility for making their own decisions including, but not limited to, whether to participate on any particular water body or segment, what equipment they use, the routes they may choose to paddle, whether their skill levels and abilities are appropriate for the activity or whether climate and water conditions are appropriate for their participation. In applying for membership to the WBPC, they acknowledge that paddling, like many sports, has inherent dangers which can be minimized through education and experience, but cannot be totally eliminated. They hereby, for themselves, their heirs, executors, and administrators waive any and all rights and claims for damage they may have against the WBPC, its officers, and representatives for injuries suffered by them in pursuit of WBPC activities.
