Or...one might come to Utah...live in stasis, virtual suspended animation.  In fact...it's said that one could "exist" forever here, where September 22 is forever away...may never arrive!  Huh  It's said that while the rest of the world rotates, we just wait for out spot to come around again.  Grin

Amherst is still way inland. By the way, are you old enough to appreciate the truly Canadian joke? The world will end at 6:00 tonight - a half-hour later in Newfoundland. (Any Newfies here?)

I would add hope to the optimistic idea. I'm sticking with the Luscombe Phantom and the Cessna Airmaster. Since I'm on the East coast I see the equinox before everybody else so I get a head start.

OK!  I'm all ready...got no less than 6...6...designs ready to go!  Cheesy  Gonna start with the Whitman version of a Mitsubishi Karigane (which is really a Ki-30 Nagoya)...then, in the peanut scale category, a Mooney Ki-27, a Val, a Tojo, a Hawker Fury, and finally...maybe...the venerable Republic P-47D.  Can I do it?  Shocked  Mission creep?  Roll Eyes  Leme atem'  Grin

I can't believe August is gone and we're already up to the 6th of Sept.  This month will be gone before we know it!

This is a bit amusing, gentlemen...like a gaggle of kids waiting for the school bell to ring....

I think the point of a cookup is to have the pleasure of seeing what everyone is doing while constructing similar models...not who finishes first...or last.  There's no prize money...no kid's participation trophy...only a symbolic gold star on one's forehead...or whatever.

Like Tom says...who will know exactly when you start...and who cares?  Actually...from my meager experience...most participants end up having multiple builds!  Tom says, "ENJOY!"  So enjoy!  I'm anticipating a wonderful variety of Joe Ott-Ace Whitman models!  And peanuts...enough to cause a circus stampede!  Wink

The models created during the cookup are going to be classics!  SO ENJOY!

Sept 22 is start time!  We won't have to wait till 10 p.m. to start...just 22 Sept 2018.  Enjoy, if you cut out before that time and don't tell anyone who will know.  You'll just finish before everyone else and we'll suspect something is amiss! Shocked Grin Cheesy Wink  We just like building together!

Although the kids are back in school now, I believe that we are going by the Fall Equinox which happens September 22, 9:54 P.M. EDT
  Now, I am not sure if we have to wait until about 10pm before we start, or if you are allowed to cut out a kit for yourself ahead of time as long as you don't glue anything together. Or even if  you can make some subassemblies, like cockpits or canopies.

Good guess but no, no gearboxes in this one.
