Just finished reading the December Lighthouse Legacy. They are listening at Harbour Lights. They "state" and country lineup is listed. Could this be the year for Pomham Rocks, RI and my other choice Thatcher's Island? Or might it be "The Chops"? Then there's the Society Piece. Lots to ponder between now and January. I'm running short of rooms for my collection and may have to get selective. What y'all think is up at Harbour Lights??????????

I know that HLs didn't do the survey for the heck of it, but, this is something unheard of. The entire year's line being made up of Collector's choices. I just hope they come out with another CG Cutter from Anchor Bay..

Interesting list of states chosen for next years lineup. I'm guessing this includes both LE's & GLOW's.

Going by the postings in the thread Tony started earlier this year to get our choices, which doesn't include the email only responces he received, you can get a idea of what they might be. I bet most of the lighthouses mentioned more then once where the ones selected. Although Bergen Point was mentioned three times and NJ isn't one of the states on the list.

Surpised I don't see California, I thought it already leaked out that a LE of Point Cabrillo was due in 2009.

Looks like no Duluth lights or Minnesota Point yet.

Curious to see what's for Oregon and Georgia. Maybe some Gone but not forgotten lights?

Delaware??? Could be Harbour of Refuge? Maybe Delaware Beakwater?

Maryland - Many possibilities, but hoping for Point Lookout.

New York - Huntington Harbor or Gull Island (as it was) would be great.

Maine, Florida, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island - Many collectors will be happy with whatever they are.

Hawaii - Long overdue, should be interesting.

Louisiana - Sabine Pass finally??? maybe!!!

Canada - Almost the same feel as a US light. Should be a good choice.

Ireland - I'm not personally thrilled about this one, but hey it might be time to start an Euro section in my collection.

beanie Hey only about 65 days until we know the first half dozen releases. cool

Wickywacky, Great picks, I forgot about Blackstone for Maryland, that would be a good choice!

The Chops as the CS pieces would make many collectors happy. It they are the 2009 CS pieces, I'm hope the Duluth Breakwaters are the 2010 CS pieces.

I'm also surprised that their won't be a Michigan or Wisconsin piece. Nothing for Lake Michigan, Lake Huron, Lake Superior, or Lake Erie? They are usually a good chunk of the yearly releases! I'm still hoping for an Apostle Island release in the next few years.

I've been asking and hoping for Point Lookout, Maryland for several years. Maybe?

I was hoping for Jones Point, Virginia. However, if they do Florida and do one of the remaining Reef Lights, I would be happy.
