I just hope the funds are put in an interest-bearing account, so by the time it opens there should be significant interest accrued.

We have received numerous applications and have most of our vehicles already lined up for the event, but we are still looking a DeLorean. If anybody knows somebody with a DeLorean and would like to be in the Opening Day Parade, please have them email me at: ecopop@earthlink.net

I won't be anywhere near the event due to nausea, but shouldn't the politicians and other dignitaries be paying the car owners for their photo ops instead of having the cars subsidize their self-congratulating?

Todd: Mitch is 100 percent correct. Half Moon Bay Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center is a clearinghouse for the fees.

Okeydokey, Mitch.

Todd, you are absolutely incorrect about this. The HMBCCCVB is only handling the checks. The funds are to be spent on preparations for the Opening Day Event and Tunnel VIP Volunteer Party. This will cover items such as tents, PA systems, porta potties, mailing out 400+ invites, rental of a cable car for elected officials to ride on through the tunnels, shuttle buses, etc. All proceeds over expenses will be donated to the San Mateo County Parks Foundation. This is a fundraiser for the volunteers who made the tunnels happen. This is not a fundraiser for the HMBCCCVB as you have implied.

John, there are several restrictions to this event, entry fees being the largest. I suggest this is simply a straightforward fundraising event for the HMB CoC. I think you owe it to us readers to make that clear.

(Editor's Note: Well, Todd, I don't really know anything more than what you see here on this post, but you are entitled to your opinion. If anyone would like to have me post a clarification, feel free to submit it here in the usual way. We have nothing better to do, so we might as well argue about this, too. God Bless Pacifica!)
