Every month one of our members challenges the group (self included) to learn and sing/play a song, one specifically or from a general category. Any and everyone is welcome to join in, no matter the skill level. Thusly, you are all challenged.
Resolve not yet strong enough? Observers welcome.
For those who seek more clarification:
1. Anyone can do any of these challenges.
2. Every instrument is an option (not just singing).
3. Anyone can create a challenge, provided that:
–a. one has participated in a previous challenge.
–b. one is willing to do said challenge.
–c. the challenge is not already decided for the month.
–d. one has not created a challenge in the last 3 months.
4. Participating in ANY of the challenges does NOT commit you to the other challenges, but the more you join the merrier.
