  I don't think what Evan is talking about has any chance of reducing 
participation in the Main Event in October...if anything it would potentially 
generate more interest.

  Evan, I'm not sure what you have in mind for time limits etc, but you may be 
interested in an event that I organise a couple of times a year called a 
"Minitwitch" (they have been happening for about 4 years now, based in 
Newcastle). Rather than the full 24 hour race, it is only 5 hours long and is 
designed for a single morning's twitching on a given Sunday. I am organising 
one soon and will be posting details in the next few days. It is a 
purely-for-fun thing that keeps us Twitchathon addicts at bay during the year!

  I hope too, that it may spur on more interest for the fundraising event in

  Dear all,

It would be a great pity if there was a second Twitchathon that may possibly
reduce participation in the Twitchathon that Frances Czwalinna organises
every year that raises funds for bird conservation.
Just a thought...
