There's room for as many who want to join. I will be making a new sign-up under the General Information area because I'm going to need room here for all the teams.

As of today, 12/28, we have 26 who have signed up. I also sent a team mail to my SP CLASS where I was running BSG challenges, but told them that I couldn't do two teams, so I invited them to join this team. We may have more join. At this rate, we'll have at least four teams. I won't have enough room in the challenge or support forums to make them all sticky, but it will still work.

Everyone has suggested to have more forum links for the additional topics, and possibly more topics, and also the availability to make more of them sticky but who knows when that will happen.

Great turnout, and hope everyone sticks with us through the month without any illness or family commitments, which I know a couple who will be having surgery, but that's fine.

I'm in - but I'll probably be having eye surgery sometime this month (cataract) and may have to sit out a week. Will that be okay?

Snowflakes, Snowballs? Something snow related since so many of us are dealing with it?

I'm in for sure!

Team name ideas: "Celebrations"
"Resolutions"
"New Ewe's"
"Ice Crystals"


Or, you could do a 'theme' for the team names :) lol, I've got to much time on my hands...but here's an example:

"Raindrops" (on roses)
"Whiskers" (on kittens)
(bright copper) "Kettles"
and (warm, woolen) "Mittens"

yeah, I need coffee!

It’s time to sign-up for the January 2011 Buddy Support Group Challenge! But first, I need a little help from you.
emoticon
When you sign up, suggest a team name that you think would be appropriate for our January 2011 BSG teams. If you can’t think of one right now, that’s fine (I'm drawing blanks at the moment). But if you do, just come back and edit your initial sign-up post and add a team name. Also, please include your first name. I use both your SP user name and first name when I compile my list.

If we have enough members, then we might have more than two teams as I know how hard it is to keep up with everyone in the chat rooms when there are more than ten members. Ideally, I’d like to have no more than five or seven on each team.

• Sign-up early, by Thursday, December 30; however, you can sign up later and I will place with a team (typically the one with the least number of members).

• The first week’s challenge will start Saturday January 1 and end on Friday January 7. The final week will be Saturday January 22 through Friday January 28. I know there have been some posts about what to do in between challenges, so all I can suggest is just keep doing what you’ve been doing that has given you the best success. I might add a simple monthly challenge separate from this to keep you going in between challenges, and to add to the existing challenge.

• Friday, December 31, I’ll post the teams’ chat threads and send a Spark-Mail to the members of each team. This will give you time to get to know each other and to choose your TEAM CAPTAIN and ALTERNATE TEAM CAPTAIN. (If you’d like to go ahead and volunteer ahead of time, send me a SPARK-MAIL with the subject “January 2011 BSG Team Captain/Alternate Team Captain”)
