This is one of the monthly challenges that came out for the month of February. It may be archived sometime this month, seeing as how it has become March now, but I don't see why you couldn't make a run of it.

If you're interested, the foreman challenges for this month are: here and here.


message 16: by Paris (new)

Paris (pah13) | 4285 comments Joeera, this is a monthly challenge, but we usually through them in the archive section eventually, so they are still available to do if you'd like.

Since I was preparing for my vacation and then on vacation, I didn't have a chance to come up with a March foreman challenge,
