Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.

Weekend Challenge volunteers please!

Hi everyone. Once again it's time to ask for volunteers to run our weekend challenges between now and the end of the year. Our previous roster has run out, and I need to get the new one up asap!

I will run this weekend, but after that, all weeks are free! Comment here with how many weekends you can run, and any dates you prefer and/or any dates you won't be available.

Once I have the roster worked out, I'll post it for you all to confirm the dates I gave you work. If not, we can work out swaps then.

Don't be shy - if you've never done it before and would like to try running a weekend challenge, it's pretty straightforward. Check out previous weekend challenges under the tag on this post for how it works, or ask me any questions here.
