I further waive any claim that I, my heirs, assigns, or personal representatives, may have against the Providers for all accidents, injuries or losses I may incur while participating in the Iowa Star Party. I agree to indemnify and hold harmless the Providers for any costs incurred (including attorneys fees) in defending any action brought against the Providers as a result of my participation in the Iowa Star Party.

The Iowa Star Party directors have not yet implemented weather control in order to guarantee clear skies and sunny weather. We look forward to doing so within the next few centuries, but in the mean time, we have the following policy for cancelling your registration. We are able to refund your entire fee if notified by September 7, 2017. After that date, we will only refund 50% of the Oakridge camping fee and 80% of the primitive camping fee.
