is there a link or how do you navigate to leaderboards for a specific month?

Edit: I found the leaderboards! for anybody else reading and wondering, click on anybody's name and in the name card thingy that pops up in the bottom left corner it says how many tooltip points they have.... click that number. :smile:



Hope everyone's week is going swimmingly! At the risk of exhausting pool puns, let's di-ive into how this month's challenge is progressing so far. :ocean: :swimming_woman: :sun_with_face:

Excited for what the rest of the month will bring. Set up alerts for posts on this Topic to follow along for updates!

Out of curiosity, has anyone actually been able to use a pool yet this summer? Is it warm enough? Where are you all located?
