Angie, I tried this with my team, and with 4 time zones, it is complicated. We just ended up having a check in thread. I only have 158 on my team. If you can pull it off, I'm up for it. Friday night is great, I am dateless anyway. emoticon

I love SparkPeople

Today is the first day of the rest of my life.

I am responsible for my own happiness.

My name is Bonnie

Nancy, I completely understand the home and family time. That's wonderful for you to have those priorities. :) as for the suggestion to have a thread to come to when we can.. We do have that. It's our "roll call and chat". I think the idea for this hospitality idea is just a step beyond that.

We are always looking for ways to keep our team exciting and moving. Trying new things once in a while. :)

Nancy,going to see what what the general outcome of this is and I promise to get back to you regarding a weeknight, we have to remember that many of us are still working and we are dealing with 4 time zones also. It's going to be a little tricky in the beginning to iron all this out, emoticon , I know we can!! So, Nancy, as soon as I get all my information together, I let you know whether a weeknight would be feasible.

Thanks so much for your understanding!!

I ry not to spend a lot of time on Spark on the weekends because that's when my husband is home. He travels through the week and is gone Monday through Thursday. Couldn't we just use this thread for chatting and everyone jump in when they can?

Love it. Have been MIA and am ready to get back to it. Saturday mornings would be great. I'm almost always at my desk or can make time to be!

I also can jump in when I can. Either fri evening or sat morning work equally well for me.

I think this is a great idea and I'm flexible. Some Fri. nights are "date night", and Sat am's are fine for me. I can jump in whenever I can as well. Great idea!!

Dear Lord, set my sights on You and Your great attributes. Help me to live in Your presence, dependent on Your guidance each day. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Hi Angie,
Sounds like a lot of fun to me. Unfortunately my schedule is somewhat crazy so if you just post what times it will be I will try to join when I can. I work Friday evenings about 3 times a month, and Saturday morning is Farmer's market date with my hubby. Don't try to schedule around me, I will just jump in when I can.

Hi Everyone!!

Since we are going to have Hospitality for new members, doesn't it just make sense that we offer the same to our existing members??emoticon I'd love to start a weekly Hospitality Hour/Getting to Know You Hour for existing members.

In this time frame I would like us to get to know the members on our team,.... get to know them by their first name (if they wish to let that be known), their likes and dislikes, in other words just some good old fashioned chit-chat,.... without a thought to fitness and nutrition for a change of pace!! Let's get to know our neighbors, who live down the street from us here in Spark World!!

I would love to see group participation, do you think this is something that you would be interested in doing, here at the Weekly Challenge Team? I would like to set this up for Friday nights to kick start the weekend, but we are having a problem with the time zones, I live in the Eastern Standard Time Zone......but I am willing to accommodate the most practical solution to this problem. So tell me what you think of this and what would be your favorite time slot, or if Saturday Morning would be better, maybe a Breakfast/Coffee Klatch .... think about it see what works best for you and remember our time zone situations and get back to me and we will take it from there...this would not be starting until after Labor Day, so give it some thought and let's get to know one another!!! Please get back to me with your opinion and thoughts, they really do matter here at Spark People Weekly Challenge Team, and I look forward to getting to know you and work with all of you!!
