GROUP POLICY

** Group rates will only be honored with prior reservations and all waivers and money turned in at one time for all participants by a group leader. The responsibility of organizing the group and collecting all waivers/money lies within the group and there must be ONE person for contact as the group leader to coordinate with us to minimize confusion within reservations. Please DO NOT have individual members of a group send in separate checks or call to change the reservation.

In order to save time and trouble we highly recommend that all of our clients (especially large groups and those having children under the age of 18 attending) go to the release page/waiver form, print the page, read carefully, and sign the agreement. You must list children who are under the age of 18 and are under adult’s supervision. This is especially important for those groups with children under the age of 18 and will need parental permission to attend the outing with other adults or groups. Then bring the waiver along with you to James River Runners, LLC and have your group leader turn in all waiver forms and money at one time.
