    That's nice they lowered the donation. Do we want to do a group collection and have one of our members do a segment?

    obviously, i'd like to have as many people as can make it. i really wish they did an online donation website like other walks for causes use.

    i just signed up today!

    All of the slots on the last day (Pacific Beach to downtown San Diego) are full, and they have a waiting list for that. I signed up for the second to last day, July 15, the Oceanside to Pacific Beach day.

    and they do have the ability for additional fundraising! I've started my own fundraising page, as well as started a team that anyone can join: Team Hondo!

    Isn't a 'conival' a mountain in Scotland? :confused:

    Did you mean 'carnival'?

    i'm confused. :(

    Conival is the term that Course of the Force uses for their outdoor festival events as they wind their way to Comic-Con. one part con, one part carnival. and a lotta parts not really either - mostly just the sponsors having booths.

    Then they should've spelled it Con-ival, with the hyphen, because Conival is not a real word and they don't want to confuse those of us who have memorized the dictionary. :p
