So I posted on here a while back about a trail Id been working on on my property. Its getting close to done and I have several runs, drops, table tops, skinnies, teeter totters for varying skill levels. Im trying to put out some feelers on if people are interested in this. So would anybody be interested in playing around in a skills area? Or any questions about it?

Also to the higher up GORC memebers, ive been looking into special event insurance to maybe have people out on specific days. Perhaps once a month or every other month. What insurance do you guys use for your race events or trail build days? Or what is required? Is the state liable if someone were to injure themselves?

Also interested.

 

Also, look into the law in Missouri, but in ARK, a land owner cant be held liable for injury if they are not taking money for the event or access to the property. Same law that prevents land owners from being sued if someone sneaks on to their property uninvited and gets hurt. Somehow this law is still in effect and covers free access MTB trails, so if you are not taking any money, you might not be able to be held liable for anything. Look into it in MO.

Sorry this is a long post, but are some applicable Missouri statutes:

 

537.346.  Landowner owes no duty of care to persons entering without fee to keep land safe for recreational use.
