    Hi @kaliswalker

    I’m new to the challenge and I’m unsure if there’s anything else I need to do. I have done an introduction post, but I have seen posts that talk about choosing a team/getting an invite. If you could let me know if there’s anything else I need to do, to get started, that would be great.

    Thank you 😊

    @kodakslim - I don't see your name on the team sign up. You need to sign up in the thread, "Do you want a seat on a Plane...." Here's the link to that thread to make it easy for you to find:
