First challenge of 2022 is a 3-day challenge on the GFN-17-LOW and GFN-17-MEGA projects.
There isn't a challenge thread on their forums yet, but there's a countdown on the front page along with a tenatative schedule for 2022 here.
Only tasks downloaded after the start and in before the end will count so no bunkering.

    Great, I am ready for another Mega Prime
    I have been running Genefer 20 but from are OLD runs and all the way back to 15 Dec so getting (1st) is MONTHS away.
    They are also running 3 Tasks per workunits for some ODD reason.

    Make sure you choose both Gen 17 projects (Low and Mega) because the 17 Low’s will likely go EOL during the challenge.

    I recommend that you Do Not Run SiDock@home due to network issues on their side.
    Also I would not run any VM tasks as well.
    It caused problems with uploading and downloading any other project not only this one.
    I am seeing it causing a 2 to 3 minute delay so if you are going after a Prime you need to upload and down only the number of task that you can run and not download and have tasks waiting to run.

    From PG
     
    *** WARNING! ***

    We expect that GFN-17-Low will permanently exhaust its supply of work within the next 24 hours. If you have not already done so, in order to avoid having your computers become idle during the challenge, we strongly recommend adding GFN-17-MEGA to your task selections.

    The challenge is done. Very good finish for our merry band of crunchers who do it the old fashion way. 9th overall out of 136 teams.
