IMPORTANT NOTICE TO THE OFFICERS, SHOW MANAGERS & TRIAL MANAGERS OF CLUBS AND OTHER ORGANISERS OF KUSA-LICENSED SHOWS AND EVENTS
We refer all those involved in the organisation and management of KUSA-licensed Shows and Events to the Minutes of Fedco 06-2020, in particular to Items 3.12.2 (Clubs’ Disclaimer Notice) and 3.12.3 (Clubs’ Right of Admission Reserved Notice). These Minutes were distributed to all interested parties in July 2020 by the KUSA Office and the respective Provincial Councils and are also available of the KUSA website.
At its meeting held in June 2020, the Federal Council resolved that, for the reasons set out in detail in the Minutes, it would be mandatory for Clubs and other Show and Event organisers to display the following Notices at all KUSA-licensed Shows and Events:
Those entering and/or lingering on these premises do so entirely at their own risk and agree, on behalf of themselves and on behalf of those accompanying them, e.g. their invitees, guests and/or minor children, that (insert name of show-holding Club) and/or the Kennel Union of Southern Africa, their Members, Officers, Officials, Employees and/or Representatives, shall not be liable for the bodily harm or death of any person, or the loss or destruction of, or damage to, any property or belongings brought onto the premises, howsoever arising or resulting from any act, omission, or conduct of those entering or present on these premises.
|RIGHT OF ADMISSION RESERVED|
Notices may either be displayed separately, or combined into a single Notice.
Notices should be in a size, font and colour which ensures maximum visibility and must be on prominent display in high-traffic areas at the Show/Event venue (e.g. Entrance to Venue, Show/Event Office and Toilet Area).
Some dedicated Show venues, such as Goldfields Showgrounds in Gauteng, have indicated their willingness to have boards manufactured for permanent display. For those dependent on multi-functional venues on an ad hoc basis, it is recommended that durable laminated Notices be produced which could be used from year to year.
