        Stuuupes... I have assisted with this event before. It's like pulling something through your teeth to collect money from sponsors. A lot of these sponsors are advertised by the event and sometimes the money don't come until real late.. so don't talk what you don't know. Not to say that they aren't grateful for the money nonetheless.
