assuming the schedule stays as stated, does the DPL start this weekend with the Challenge announced on Sunday at 12:00 midnight, Eastern Standard Time?

June 8th is a Monday so I would assume that Tuesday June 9th will be the first challenge in competition.

No. We announce a challenge every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. But because they start at midnight, people call them Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday...

I think the time zones make it confusing for some because rollover is 11pm for me.

So does it start on the 8th, or start shooting for the challenge on the 8th?

THE CHALLENGE ANNOUNCED ON THE 8TH WILL BE THE FIRST DPL/2015 CHALLENGE. The SECOND challenge of the first round will be announced on the 10th. The "Thursday Challenges" will not count towards DPL standings, nor will the Free Studies and any special challenges or speed challenges that pop up during the DPL season.

Was it always like that with Thursday challenges? It's been many moons since I tagged along on a DPL train... I can't remember how that goes... Lol.

I believe so. If we allowed ALL the challenges to be used, that would give paying members an even MORE disproportionate advantage than the 2:1 edge they currently hold.

I felt so confused. To me the challenges are Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday challenges. So I was trying to figure out what the heck a Monday the 8th challenge meant. But then I realized that for Eastern time zone (U.S.) folks the challenge roll-overs happen at midnight which is technically Monday - but to my brain that's still Sunday night.

So I think I've got it that the Sunday and Tuesday night challenges will be DPL challenges. I'm ignoring the rest of the chatter....
