How are the themes set?
The DT get together and come up with loads and loads of suggestions for themes. We then vote (as a DT) on all these suggestions and the Top 4 or 5 are then chosen as our themes for the following month. However . . . watch this space challenges goers out there ! ! ! There are times that the sponsor chooses the theme or alternatively we use the prize offered as the stepping point for our theme.
