As you may have noticed, there's a veritable host of new patch challenges springing up for 2013 and beyond e.g. this one here or an "On foot from home" one that Mr McKinney seems to be organising. However, this is to confirm that the original (and still the one with the best prizes!) patch challenge (i.e. this one) will be continuing into 2013 (and beyond) also! Huzzah!
Bring on the Golden Mallard, I say!
