Hello! I am Mike Smolka. I am the Owner of Photo Finish Racing, the board game... The BIIIG board game! I make contact with you on the referral from Rhonda Cap, the Activities Director at Leisure World AZ, here in Mesa. We have arranged to schedule a Kentucky Derby style event here and Photo Finish Racing will be the center piece of this activity. Quite by happenstance, I was able to introduce the game in person to Rhonda and her assistant, Jamie, and they agreed that this game would be a terrific fit among other community activities they offer. They suggested I reach out to a larger audience... and here we are! My father invented the game originally over 70 years ago, but we just recently have finally brought it to market.... VERY FEW people have ever heard of us... until now.... We feature a HUGE playing surface and the simple but effective rules promote ENGAGEMENT among everyone present... Please see (ME! in our short tutorial video) at PhotoFinishRacing.com under the Rules tab. Easy to Learn, Easy to Play, and COMPLETELY ENGAGING THROUGHOUT! What questions might this extended community have for me? Thank you again, Mike "Smoke" Smolka Owner/President Photo Finish Racing... and Proud Sponsor of the PDJF -Permanently Disabled Jockey's Fund

I was in Activities for 5 years (5 years ago) and a lot of things have changed since I was in the game. I started back in December, and I'm looking for new Activity Participation Forms to encorporate. I'm not a fan of the forms my building is using. They were created by a former director. I've looked at Med Pass forms and like them.. but feel like there should be a space to write in specific items. What you are you all using? Are you creating your own? Are you using a standardized form? We currently put a copy of our calendar in the chart and highlight the resident's participation, as well as fill out a form. I do want to continue the highlighting method for our use, because it makes it so easy to see who is doing what. However our "legal" charting forms, I'm not happy with. Help!! feel free to email me samples of what you are using! email@example.com
