Geographical boundaries

How does this forum (The Challenge-2010) work? It's a calendar year list, right? Does it have geographical boundaries ? Is it restricted to certain participants?

G'day Russ

Yes, these are calendar year events and conducted within the TBO's official survey area (same for our seasonal WITHIN surveys). This area in total is the equivalent of five 10-minute grids. The boundaries and grid coordinates are given at this link:

The background behind the Challenge concept and the original rules - not much has changed - are at:

Anyone can contribute. I know that largely precludes non-locals but if you like the concept and you, John Kooistra and any other Sunshine Coast birders want to run a similar Challenge in your own patch, then I encourage you to do so, and I'm more than happy to discuss how we might facilitate that on the TBO forum, given you guys have been supporting us.
