As for HOLLERS, again repeating what Polaris wrote -
HOLLERS members earn Hoots for participating in club activities. For each activity, challenge, or something of the kind, Hoots are offered. We keep track of Hoots in a spreadsheet and at the end of each term, the top three earners win the Hoots Award. Periodically, the HOLLERS Award is also given to members who are particularly active participants. Both awards would be found in the Treasures section of "My Profile".
Every month we offer three creative projects, three puzzle challenges and a newsletter. We also schedule longer activities like First o' September at different times throughout the year. There are discussion threads and a scrapbook section where you can meet new people and share your thoughts, works, and experiences.
If you have any questions about anything at all, please don't hesitate to ask.
