IN NO CASE SHALL THE NEVADA COUNTY FAIR ASSOCIATION OR ANY OF ITS OFFICERS OR DIRECTORS, BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LOSS, DAMAGE, INJURY, DEATH, DISEASE, THEFT, LOSS OR DEATH OF LIVESTOCK, POULTRY, RABBITS OR OTHER CAUSE TO ANY PROPERTY WHILE ON THE FAIRGROUNDS. THE MANAGEMENT ASSUMES NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY PROPERTY BROUGHT UPON THE FAIRGROUNDS. IF PROPERTY OWNERS OR OTHERS INTERESTED IN THE PROPERTY DESIRE PROTECTION AGAINST LOSS, DAMAGE OR INJURY FROM ANY CAUSE THEY MUST MAKE THEIR OWN ARRANGEMENTS AND PAY FOR SUCH INSURANCE.
Where premiums are paid on a point basis, the number of points awarded for each place is indicated in each respective class in the catalog. The points will be totaled to ascertain all the points in a department. The total number of points awarded within a department will then be divided into the total amount of points allotted to the department. This amount multiplied by the number of points awarded to a particular item is the premium which will be paid. For example, if the value of a point is found to be $1.10 and the animal is awarded 20 points, the premium will be $22.00.
