Challenges for Days - Thursday's Challenges

 Check out each challenge's rules to be sure your entry qualifies.  There is nothing more frustrating than doing all that work and entering just to be told you missed a condition and do not qualify!  If you know of a new challenge, or a challenge change, please either leave us a message or email us at  CFDinfo11@gmail.com

These are the Thursday Challenges we are aware of. The lists are prepared by humans and that means mistakes can (and will) be made; if you spot one, please let us know.
If you know of a challenge we don't list, please leave us a message in the comment box.ui
