HIGH COUNTRY SANDLOT FOUNDATIO/SANDLOT TOURS will be referred below as H.C.S.F.
Obligations of SANDLOT TOURS, H.C.S.F.:
is a "tour organizer" and as such, acts as your agent in organizing transportation, lodging and other matters for your tour. While H.C.S.F. contracts on your behalf with those people or companies it feels will provide you with the best service for the price being paid, H.C.S.F. has no control or responsibility for the service actually provided.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY: As stated above, H.C.S.F. is merely a tour organizer who contracts on your behalf with transportation companies and places of lodging, all of which are totally independent of H.C.S.F., Therefore, I and all persons claiming through me (including my parents, in the event I am a minor) waive all right to claim damages against, and release from all liability, H.C.S.F., and its owners, employees, directors and tour guides for any damages, liabilities, causes of action suits, injuries, costs or expenses (including but not limited to legal and medical fees) arising out of any tour or trip, except where the same occurs due to the negligence or willful misconduct of H.C.S.F., or that of its employees. Specifically included in this waiver as well as any inconvenience suffered and expenses incurred as a result of any cancelled or delayed transportation. Further, I (or my parents, in the event I am a minor) assume all risks inherent with travel to and from, and within Australia. This waiver, release and assumption is made with full knowledge of California Civil Code Section 1542.

DANGEROUS OR ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES: Any participant on a tour who participates in any illegal, dangerous, hazardous or detrimental activity forfeits his or her tour privileges without any right to any refund and, at the sole discretion of SANDLOT TOURS, may either be turned over to the local law enforcement agency having jurisdiction or, if financial arrangements have been made to the satisfaction of H.C.S.F., returned to the city of departure via the most convenient method of transportation available. The tour participant, or if the tour participant is a minor, his or her parents, hereby indemnify and hold H.C.S.F. harmless from any and all costs expended (including legal fees) with respect to the subject matter of this paragraph.  H.C.S.F. does NOT provide services similar to a chaperon or babysitter. In most cases the participants are within one month away from going off to college without a babysitter when attending this tour. They are expected to act as a mature young adult when travelling away from home and in a foreign country. H.C.S.F. cannot prevent any use or misuse of alcohol and or drugs by the participant. Parents should decide if their college bound young adults are mature and responsible enough to travel to Australia without a babysitter.
