I've also heard rumors that there will be a second challenge on the very same weekend but I've not a clue where that would be.

Unforunately, I most likely won't be doing any lighthousing that weekend. If I get my way, I'll be out in Denver and exploring the heck out of that area.

Shirin,

I believe the other challenge will be the Cape Cod one. I didn't know they were to be on the same weekend, though.

I hope I can plan to be at at least one of them in 2008. I'll have missed all 3 of the challenges this year for various reasons.

I bet you're right Dennis. Now that I think about it, that rings a bell. I'm so far out of the lighthousing loop these days I was suprised I heard about the Maine Challenge.

I have heard the rumor of another challenge scheduled that weekend. If anyone knows anything about this, could you please let me know? I had thought that there were no others planned at that time, and I have been unable to find any info about this other event.

Paul,

I'll try and contact the person I was speaking with at the NJLHS meeting last weekend about this.

He told me that there were to be two "new" Challenges in 2008- the Maine one which started in 2007 and the Cape cod one. He had no info on the dates of either at the time.

Well, I suspect that the person who mentioned this heard about it from me! I hope I can get this cleared up soon. I don't want any conflicting dates!

SO I now hear that is it Martha's Vineyard that is having the challenge that is the same weekend as the one in Maine.

AND...a spring or summer challenge in Florida.

Perhaps it's a good thing I'm getting my new car tomorrow.

Florida in the spring sounds interesting ...
Believe those who search for the truth ...
Doubt those who find it ...
