    Darn, I think I just answered my own question by looking at the past ones and it appears as though they are every two weeks. Foo. I finally get out to fan this weekend, and no contest. :mad:

    Is there any particular reason we cannot have them weekly? I see none, but maybe I'm just tired...

    Well the reason i made them two weekly was because I usually leave the poll open for a week and I wasn't sure if everyone would have the time to take the challenge weekly but I'll open a poll and see what the consensus is.

    I know that my son and I would try it every week. He really looks foreward to the next challenge. Although I haven't entered every contest, I have taken pics. I sometimes cannot fit the deadline into my work schedule. But then my work schedule is not your average work schedule..........

    I can try to do that! I just don't want to create a "controversy" by entering late. That was the reason for the "Too Late..." thread. I wanted to display the photo, but I didn't want step on the toes of everyone else who did get entered on time.

    Could you allow pictures taken over the previous two weeks? Or for a longer period of time that will allow two weekends for railfanning? You would have to announce the topic further in advance. Each contest would cover a 2-3 week period.

    Sort of a "240 Hour Picture Challenge."

    Even though I have a hard time meeting the deadline, I like the 72 hour cutoff. It forces you to make the best of what has been given to you at that time.

    I like the contest as it is. I'm not suppose to drive anymore, so it's hard for me to get out, unless I find a driver [the wife].
    The weather round here hasn't been the best, that doesn't help either.
