CST #2087766: Registration as a seller of travel does not constitute approval by the State of California.  California has established a Travel Consumer Restitution Fund (TCRF) under the California Seller of Travel Act.  The TCRF is not applicable to these Outings.  The law requires us to advise you that you would not be eligible to make any claim from the TCRF in the unlikely event of default by the Sierra Club.  California law also requires certain sellers of travel to have a trust account or bond.  The Sierra Club has such a trust account.
