I think the iron chef idea is cool but I think it limits the contestant pool to USA a bit, given the current state of post worldwide, also some folks would get their parts way before anyone else (not sure if that matters).

I love the "Golden Saber" idea as well as "The Jazz Challenge" other materials. they sound like they would both yield very unique sabers.

So, FJK, any news of that challenge idea of yours?

No. I have a feeling that contest will have to stay where it is for now. If something changes down the road, that’ll be a different story.
May the force be with you all!

Remember... speak softly and carry a well constructed light saber! :)

How "Freedom of Speech" works:  you have the freedom to say whatever you want, BUT you also have the freedom to suffer whatever consequences your actions or words dictate

That's a good point.  I used to live in Japan, and it could take months for stuff to get to me from the states.  I think we'd be able to overcome that with a longer build time lines.  The flashgun challenge, albeit rudely interrupted by a pandemic, was 7 months long.  IMO, that should be enough to keep international members interested.  Besides, the majority of the work happens in the last month or two anyway. ;)

Fair enough. In that case, is it worth taking a vote on the challenge ideas submitted so far and get that ball rolling?
Better late than never.
