As of May 15, 2008, all RMCC web-posted, water-related events and trips will use ACA Insurance to help protect the RMCC and its members from litigation. The only exception is the winter Meyers Pool sessions, as they have lifeguards and insurance and there is no TC involvement there.
For each trip/event, the Participants will need to pay $5 and sign the ACA waiver OR be a current member of ACA. To find out more about ACA membership, go to ACA Home page and ACA Membership .
TCs will need to understand and follow the ACA process as defined in this document: TC Instructions for RMCC-ACA Trips/Events
A separate paper copy of the ACA waiver needs to be signed by each Participant who is not an ACA member: ACA Adult waiver ACA Minor-under-18 waiver

The following safety plan has been filed with the ACA and can be applied to any RMCC trip or event. More difficult rivers or unusual situations may require additional safety planning or actions: RMCC Standard Safety Plan
