Dear Tim,
If you haven't paid much attention to the other emails we've sent, please take a close look at this one. We want to make your check-in process for each activity go as smoothly as possible, and we need your help.
Each participant is required to sign a liability waiver for each activity they do. We've taken as much of the work out as possible by putting the 'hard part' online. You just have to log in to the site, enter your information, follow the process and you're finished!
PASSWORD HINT: When you are done filling out the form, you will receive an email with your E-Waiver, and it is password protected for your privacy. Your password will be the second set of numbers in the PDF title (example: Waiver_34553_157401_410201753619PM.pdf). Enter it and you're in!
If you are the Group Leader, please forward this email intact to ALL members of your group.
  1. Click on this Activity E-Waiver Registration site. This link contains important information for your trip. (If the link does not work, please enter your Reservation Number and Group Leader name into the required fields.)
  2. Group leader, you should be in the database already. Just enter your First Name, Last Name, and Date of Birth and then follow the steps.
  3. Group member, if you are under the age of 18, have a parent/legal guardian complete this form with you. You might NOT be in our system and you must fill in all your contact information. MAKE SURE TO INCLUDE YOUR CORRECT EMAIL ADDRESS. WE'LL EMAIL YOU A COPY OF YOUR COMPLETED WAIVER.
  4. Please check and acknowledge that you are about to use a digital signature.
  5. On the next page, review all activities on your reservation. Scroll to the bottom and click 'NEXT STEP.'
  6. Answer a few important questions.
  7. Proceed to your LEGAL WAIVER. Read it CAREFULLY, sign it at the bottom by clicking 'SIGN' and then 'SAVE.'
  8. You will be re-directed back to the start screen. EACH PERSON requires his/her own waiver. If another person needs to sign any additional waivers, please repeat these steps.
  9. That's it. You are finished! (If you're with a large group, please email a copy of your completed waiver to your Group Leader.) You do not need to print it for our purposes.
Go enjoy life and pack for your trip. After all, you're coming on vacation. Get the work done now, and make way for the fun!
Of course, as with any new system, there could be an issue along the way. If you have trouble, please contact our office and we'll be more than happy to help get you through this process.
 See you at Noah's,
