So you would think after 4 years of scheduling challenges that I would stop making horrible mistakes, but here we are, facing the Fireworks challenge with an extremely limited audience. In an effort to salvage what we can, I've rescheduled it as a 48-hour challenge. While the rescheduling won't please everyone, I hope this gesture will, at least somewhat.

Ugg and here I thought I might have a chance on this one with the limited number of entries! Thanks Langdon, now if I dont Ribbon I will blame you!!!!!!!!!! (this is just a joke, I figured with all the whining about the original challenge, someone had to whine about this one. Maybe I can get it changed back! :-))

Thank you so much! Our local fireworks don't even begin until 11:15 pm, so this has been a great announcement!
Thanks Langdon! You rock!

A good gesture, but for next year remember your neighbour to the north. We can have a July 1st (Canada Day) to July 4th Independance day challenge...

Cheers Langdon... I'll give this one a go now... may come out with a wooden spoon... but it's worth a try :)

I am just on the internet trying to book a flight to the USA. Having the extra 24 hours will help me enter the challenge...:-)

I was just editing my "10" entry when I saw this green message. I was like "OH GOD NO! DON'T CHANGE IT!!!!!", but I am cool with 48 hours. I think it is a fair choice. If it was changed anymore then that I wouldn't be happy at all. I'm sorry if that effends the ones that aren't in firework areas this evening but if there is ever a challenge that called for snow capped mountains which aren't present in Florida, I wouldn't be complaining about it but trying to come up with a creative idea to make it work. I just hope that this challenge rule changing isn't going to become habitual. I like the challenge of each challenge and the descriptions as they are in there original form. If I wasn't in a firework region tonight I had already come up with two other ideas for an entry. I can't understand why others don't just do the same thing instead of having these rule changes.

At least with 48 hours those that don't have actual fireworks going on they can still have more time to create something that is firework friendly.

Actually, the little person icon is grey so I would say it is open.

Best way to find out is to select the details and submit link. If there's space for you to upload and enter details then you can enter the challenge.

edit: and it now says open on the home page
