Take The Bob Eckel Challenge

Bob Eckel holds the modern day CFD record for collecting petition signatures (without being paid for his work). In the summer of 2005 he single-handily collected 1,547 signatures for Scott Stringer’s campaign for Manhattan Borough President. It is a mark that has not been challenged since.

To celebrate Bob’s achievement CFD is holding a competition among our members. The CFD member that collects the most petition signatures will become the winner of the first annual Bob Eckel Challenge. That person will receive a gift certificate for dinner at a neighborhood restaurant.
