    Compers Challenge 2018 3rd Oct 17 at 5:37 PM
    I am posting this thread now so we can have the compers challenge for next year ready to go at the beginning of January 2018 and so we are not rushing about trying to sort it out during the mad month of December Advents.

    2018 Comper Challenge.

    This year we are looking for about 40 players to take part in the yearly challenge.

    Each player will choose an easy challenge and a harder challenge.
    The first 12 compers to sign up will also choose a monthly challenge.

    Depending on how many sign up will decide how many challenges we have.

    You don't have to have your challenges ready now you have 2 months to think about those

    Next year you will only be allowed to cross off one challenge per day.

    You have until November 30th to add your name, no more names will be added after that.

    If you would like to join us next year please let us know below
