Next Sunday (May 6th) we are doing an As Rx’d Skill Checklist Challenge!
There are 32 skills. The skills are done in order, one after another, with a five minute break after the first 16 skills. All participants will turn their checklist card into the moderator. The cards will be shuffled and the order the participants move in will be set for the entire Challenge. The participants will go one after another through each skill. Each skill will be set up immediately after completion of the previous skill. There are a few skills where two or more participants will perform at the same time. The moderator will determine how many participants will move at one time.
If a participant fails an attempt, you get a second attempt before the class moves onto the next skill. If you fail more than two first attempts, you do not pass the Challenge. If you fail your second attempt on one exercise, you will get one more chance at the end of the Challenge to attempt the skill again.

We will plan to kick things off around 10am at the start of open gym. This thing takes some time to get through, like upwards of 2 hours, so bring some food for the break period. Also we would like to get 2-3 volunteers to help us move consistently from station to station, if you’re interested in joining the challenge or helping volunteer, sign up on the whiteboard or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
