The Town of Collingwood shall provide me with a list of registered venues I can personally contact to negotiate and secure a performance, if available.

I understand that I can negotiate my own price and conditions with the venue, and it is my sole responsibility to secure payment for my services from the venue, without assistance from the Town of Collingwood.

I agree to inform the Town of Collingwood if I am approached with a performance opportunity, by an unregistered venue, in an effort to register the venue so that I can legally perform there and not jeopardize the Town's license agreement with Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc.
