All users of the field other than the Town of Conway assume responsibility and liability for any and all loss, harm, personal injury, property damage, claims, liabilities and costs of any nature, including without limitation, medical expenses, interest, and attorney’s fees, arising out of or suffered or incurred as a result of or relating to use of the town fields and understand and acknowledge and do forever agree to, RELEASE, ACQUIT, DISCHARGE, PROVIDE THE DEFENSE OF, INDEMNIFY, REIMBURSE AND COVENANT TO HOLD HARMLESS, the TOWN OF CONWAY, with its principal place of business at 32 Main Street, Conway, MA 01341.
All users must obey all State laws and Town by-laws, policies, and permitting rules with respect to food, alcohol, pets, and any other policies or practices that apply.
Facilities may be used as is. All users must carry out trash and leave the facilities in good shape. Any group may request temporary modifications of the facilities; such requests require approval by Parks and Recreation or its designee and should be made in time for Parks and Recreation to carry out the modification (preferably 2 weeks in advance), e.g. removal of tennis net prior to Festival of the Hills.
Parks and Rec Committee reserves the right to reject any request for use of its facilities, to charge a fee for use of its facilities, and to evict any group from its facilities if the group’s activity is destructive to the facility, disruptive to abutters or adjacent users or the group is in violation of these policies.
Groups/Individuals/organizations must fill out a Field Reservation Form for events larger than 30 people, for recurring seasonal organized events/use, or to reserve availability of fields. For clarity, small pick-up games don’t require a Field Reservation Form, but organized team play does.
