where are the 2011 challenge dates/info?
Hopefully this works.
They are not posted yet. I emailed them and below are the "guts" of the response I received -
Thank you for your interest in the EAS(R) Body-for-LIFE(R) Challenge!
The Body-for-LIFE program is 365 days per year and you may start on any day! Your start date may be any date you choose.

I have seen posts that mention rounds, including the above post. Is there a significance to the rounds? Are there prizes for individual rounds?
I don't recall there ever being prizes for rounds. For me it was always a "target" date to aim for to start, a mental thing, but in the end didn't really account for anything. They used to "highlight" after each round people that had done well which was always encouraging for me and I looked forward to.
I think the overall prizes and age breaks have changed a couple of times too over the years, but in the end, I just really need to get in my mind that I'm doing it for myself. When their round start date is or what the prizes or age breaks are shouldn't matter. And they should just take the rounds out of it in my opinion, if in the end they are for nothing. Just put in the date of when you have to be completed by to be considered for the given year and be done with it. Would also eliminate us all waiting for them to be come out. And since everyone knows next year is coming, and when, I'm confused why it takes so long to post the dates or the "challenge" kit. But, agian, in the end I'm using it as a reason that I shouldn't be and should just be getting on with it.
The point of round is you can submit a completed challenge once per round. 4 chances to compete a year.. Also makes their "judging" easier...
