It is expected that all Club members and their guests will act responsibly in the consumption of alcohol and will either assign a designated driver or make other transportation arrangements when needed. Each Club member who participates in a Club activity does so at his or her own discretion and risk. The Newcomers Club of Ridgefield, Inc. will not be held liable for any injuries which may occur as a result, and each Club member and guest expressly holds The Newcomers Club of Ridgefield, Inc. harmless and shall indemnify same from all damages, claims, expenses, of any nature caused as a result of acts by said Club member or guest. Attendance at any Club event will serve to demonstrate each Club member’s consent and acceptance to the aforementioned terms and conditions.
Solicitation of Club members, guests of Club members, or prospective Club members by anyone at a Club event or activity is strictly prohibited. The Board reserves the right to not allow the distribution of certain materials, or information, which is deemed in violation of this non-solicitation policy. Some instances of solicitation may occur if approved in advance by the Board and if the intent of the solicitation is fully disclosed to Club members and participants prior to the event/activity.
Club membership may be revoked due to inappropriate behavior such as violence, excessive intoxication, ccriminal activity, or behavior that poses a risk to the safety of Club members or their families. The revocation of membership is at the discretion of the President with the agreement of a majority of the Executive Board Members. Membership shall not be revoked due to race, gender, religion, economic status or sexual orientation. The purpose of this guideline is not to hinder Club diversity, differences in opinion and approaches, but to ensure the safety of Club members and their families.
By virtue of their attendance at any Club event, a Club member grants the Club permission to take, use, reuse and publish photographs and/or videos of such member in any and all Club-related publications and in any and all other media, including but not limited to use and publication on the internet, webpages and social media accounts, whether now known or hereafter existing, controlled by the Club, in perpetuity and for other use by the Club. Members release and discharge the Club, and its Board, from any and all claims, demands, actions, causes of action and costs of any nature arising from or related to the use, re-use and publication of any of the aforementioned photos and videos, including but not limited to claims for invasion of privacy.
