  1. Is the deadline of July 31 correct? I was wondering because I just got the issue in the mail today, and last year there was more time to complete the challenge.

    • Hello Eva,

      That is correct. We decided to make the hunt shorter this year because we found a lot of people completed it last year within the first month.

      Please let me know if you have any more questions!

      Eric
