In consideration of participating in this treasure hunt or any Read and Seek treasure hunt or Grand Rapids Riddler treasure hunt, and for other good and valuable consideration, you agree to release and discharge from liability Martin Smith and all other persons or entities acting for him (hereinafter collectively referred to as "Releasees") as follows:

1. You acknowledge that treasure hunting involves known and unanticipated risks which could result in physical or emotional injury and property damage. 

2. You expressly accept and assume all of the risks inherent in this activity. Your participation in this activity is purely voluntary and you elect to participate despite the risks.

5. You hereby voluntarily release, forever discharge, and agree to indemnify and hold harmless Releasees from any and all claims, demands, or causes of action which are in any way connected with your participation in this treasure hunt.


1. I will never hide a treasure (or medallion) on private property or in a cemetery. Please respect property laws, don’t trespass and always revere burial grounds. 

2. I am the only person who knows where I hide my treasures. I purposely don’t tell friends or family members. It’s no use trying to get information from them. 

3. If you think you have to dig to retrieve the treasure (or medallion), please check out local laws and ordinances. 

4. Always leave an area cleaner than you found it. If you dig, fill in your holes. If you find trash, remove it.
