There is a monthly challenge and a weekly Saturday sprint challenge.  These are not team but individual challenges.  Go to g2g to sign up for the challenges.  

Here is the Project  https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:Sourcerers

Here is July's monthly challenge:  https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/637777/sourcerers-challenge-month-of-july-2018  you can even join the last day of te month.  So it is not too late to join for July.

Watch on Friday in g2g for te announcement of the Saturday Sprint.

What a goof - yep, I had the wrong name of the project I was asking about!

Thanks so much Laura!
We do run a source a thon in the fall.  It is a yearly event.

As the time gets closer, there will be many posts of the different teams and what areas they cover. At that time you just put your name in the hat and they acknowledge you are on their team. Like for instance the Nor'Easters.

I was actually just thinking about this last night. But since it usually happens in October, it seemed a little early.

Ooh! I thought it was an ongoing thing. Okay, thanks so much!

There is a monthly sourcing challenge but you do not need to be on a team to join.

Just post an answer (not a comment) to the monthly post and use the tracker after you’ve added source(s) to an unsourced profile. 

I see that you are already doing the monthly challenge, so nevermind. :-D

That might be more what you are meaning? The sourcerers challenge is monthly. The Source-a-Thon is an annual event with competing teams.

And I just learned you do the challenge to earn the badge. I thought you needed the badge to do the challenge.
Erin and Steven,

Thanks for taking the time to reply. Yep, feel like a doofus - had the wrong name of the challenge I was asking about! Oops!
