This year's Shodan Challenge is now underway, with around 20 challengers hoping to achieve their goals over the next year.

Although the challenge has now officially started, people are still more than welcome to sign-up. However, do bear in mind that mentors have now been assigned, so it may not be possible to assign a mentor to you if you have not already registered.

We have a shortage of dan-level mentors, so in the case that more strong kyu players sign up, it would be very useful to have a couple more dan-level mentors available. It would be greatly appreciated if anyone dan-level who is willing to commit to being a mentor would email the organiser (Chris Bryant).

Best of luck to everyone - may the next twelve months bring success for all challengers.
