CAN ANYONE TELL ME POSITIVELY IF I CAN OFFICIALLY ENTER THE 2011 CHALLENGE IF I START BEFORE 2011? I WAS HAVING A HARD TIME GETTING BACK ON TRACK FOR THE SEPT 3 ROUND FOR 2010, BUT WOULD LOKE TO START NEXT WEEK OR THE WEEK AFTER.
2010 Challenge Round Dates
Round Start no later than Finish no later than
1 February 11, 2010 May 6, 2010
2 April 7, 2010 June 30, 2010
3 June 30, 2010 September 22, 2010
4 September 3, 2010 November 26, 2010
If you start no later than Feb 2011 and finish no later then May 2011 then you are in Round 1 of 2011. So if you start after September 3rd 2010 you are automatically in Round 1 2011 since you started before February 2011.

I have spoken with EAS about the round dates and entering the challenge. They told me to take before pics, do all twelve weeks, take after pics, write the essasy, answer the questions and send in the completed package. The judges will place you in the appropriate round depending on your start and finsih date. So start today!! You can do this!!
You can also call EAS on the 1-800 number and speak to them directly. The staff there are awesome!
All the best
