Hey Gang,

As I'm sure you've noticed, I've been a pretty inactive leader. Life has been very busy for several months, and even now as things are calming down, I find myself utilizing the Spark Teams less these days. I found that as my own participation dwindled here, the rest of the team wasn't active much either. So I want to start a discussion going on what our members want from the Spark Burlington team.

Here's what I noticed:
People seem to like checking the rankings on fitness minutes and spark points, and I get a real kick out of seeing our city rank higher on the SparkAmerica leader boards! But last month, only FIFTEEN of the members were even tracking! Are we just short on members? Why isn't everyone tracking?
The challenges were only met with one or two responses, and seemed to have no impact on behavior at all, and I simply ran out of steam during the holidays that I never regained. Do people want challenges again? What kind?
Idea-generating topics, like A-Z games, seasonal activities, and local events, would get people talking pretty often, but only during times when Burlington was more vibrant.

So what can we do to bring this team back to life? What kinds of topics, challenges, games, or activities are you interested in?

Also, does anybody want to be a co-leader? I know we're a small team and I should be able to manage this, but I obviously don't have the time I once did. Plus, I might not live in Burlington after this summer, so the torch will need to be passed eventually. If you're interested, definitely shoot me a message! BUDRFLY31 and POKIEFUZZBUCKET, I'm thinking of you!

I hope everyone responds soon, because I hate to see a team of such dedicated, amazing Sparkers lose its fire!
