    Hi, I’m taking this class as a high school class I live in a small town where we don’t have these events near me unless I drive 2 or 3 hours to one of the bigger cities. Due to this I came up with an idea on how I can substitute the event and was wondering if this would work. I have a few other signers in my school and was curious if signing with them to replace the needed event assignment would work?
