I want to be clear that this isn't necessarily a challenge. This is a group support thread and you can set every week, once a quarter, or maybe you've never done a set before. Everyone in the past threads has been welcoming, accessible, and friendly and I know that will continue into 2017. Feel free to pop in, look at pictures,...
