Girard at Large Guest Profile – Kathryn Conway Renegade Playground Challenge

Profiled: Kathryn Conway Renegade Playground Challenge It’s just like RECESS baby! Except you can dress like Mel Gibson in “Braveheart” if you like. Since we have behavior problems, the principal has told us we can’t all be on the playground at the same time. So, we’ll release different waves of Renegades onto the course at different times throughout the day. When you register, simply select the wave that you want to race in, and that will be your start time. Each wave will contain a limited number of Renegades, so some waves will fill up faster than others. While we will do our best to accommodate your desired time slot, we can’t guarantee availability.
