December Challenge Tracker
Discipline in December. Scoring will be done in two ways: First, Post. Each Post in the Month counts as 1 point (1 per Day). Second, put away your smartphone when you are with family. That means that your M and your 2.0’s will not see you looking at your phone all evening (or whenever you are with them). After M time, after 2.0’s are in bed, then you can handle slack business browse, watch, . . . etc.
Exceptions: you don’t need a bunch of rules or potential loopholes here. You know what you need to do to accomplish this challenge.

  1. Post at an AO (max of 31 pts)
  2. Put up your smartphone (max of 31 pts)

AO and Q Passport Challenge ends Dec 31st! Post to all 24 F3 Memphis AOs to receive the AO Passport Patch. Step Up and Q all 24 F3 Memphis AOs to receive the Q Passport Patch! DM Landline if you are questioning where you stand. Attendance stats are based on posted slack blasts. Congrats to Sleep Number who completed Both the AO and Q Passports.
