Board of Review Form:
Canoes & Kayaks - waiver & release for use of T-55's boats:
• Waiver & release form for canoe-kayak usage (PDF)
Troop 55 owns some canoes and kayaks. On occasion, these boats are used by small groups who are associated with the Troop but the paddling trips for which the boats are being used are not sponsored by the Troop or under the insurance provisions of the BSA. An example of such a paddling trip is where T-55 leaders explore a river or lake as a possible site for a future T-55 paddling trip. In order for such groups to use the T-55 boats, they must sign this waiver document and comply with the rules and conditions stated therein. This document is not needed if (a) the usage of the boats is for a T-55 paddling trip, and (b) a "float plan" and tour permit have been filed with SHAC, and (c) BSA insurance coverage is in place.
