Each person 18 and over is required to sign our Acknowledgment and Assumption of Risk in order to be admitted to the Conference. Please review this before registering to be sure you are agreeable with our terms.

Parents or guardians assume responsibility for their accompanying minors. “I acknowledge that blacksmithing and related activities are inherently dangerous and involve risks and dangers to participants and spectators that may result in serious injury or death. In deciding to attend the ABANA 2016 Conference, I have considered these risks and I knowingly assume them. I agree that I am responsible for my own safety during the Conference, including wearing appropriate clothing and protective gear and remaining a safe distance from all dangerous activities. I agree to hold ABANA, Salt Lake City Fairpark, and others involved in the Conference harmless from liability and expenses arising from my own actions or omissions.
