    You'll need to join the WaterRowerChallenge Yahoo group to take part in this challenge. Here's the URL:

    http://sports.groups.yahoo.com/group/WaterRowerChallenge

    Here's the announcement:

    The November To Remember Challenge is a 250 km distance race with a
    time limit of 10 Nov, 2007 to 10 Dec, 2007. Here's a chance for US
    residents to work off the coming "Thanksgiving Poundage" and for the
    rest to prepare for the "Christmas" rush. Results should be posted
    with the challenge name NTR2007.

    In order to compete in the challenge you must have a rowing machine
    with a monitor for distance completed. Water Rower SIII and SIV, and
    Concept 2 rowing machines are acceptable so far. If you want to row
    with a different make of rowing machine, please ask in a post to the
    group.

    Each competitor in the challenge will row the distance in many rowing
    sessions between the start date and midnight on the end date in their
    local timezone. Each rowing session should be logged in the Database
    at the following URL:

    http://sports.groups.yahoo.com/group/WaterRowerChallenge/database?method=reportRows&tbl=1

    This is a reminder that when we run contests on this group, we post in
    C2 meters (or km). Here's how to calculate:

    If you have an SIV then C2 meters = SIV distance * 0.89282.
    If you have an SIII then C2 meters = SIII distance * 1.43960.

    Competitor's are urged to regularly report their progress so that
    others who may wish to "catch" a leader have a fair chance to do so.

    People may post questions or comments to the group regarding this
    challenge.

    Thanks to all participants.
