Just heard from my dealer and was told that the member Society piece is Horseshoe Range West Group Lower Front Range Light in Pennsylvania (HL559). The Redemption piece is the Rear Range light (HL560).

Here is link to what I believe is correct from the Lighthouse Depot database.

Horseshoe Range West Group Lower Front Range Light

Oh.

Was hoping maybe to see something other than gone-but-not-forgotten Delaware River range lights this year.

I was surprised that the CS pieces where from the same area as last year.

Surprised, but know disappointed. smile

I did some research and these two lights are really unique.

I'm looking forward to the Horseshoe Rear Range Light.

Now we'll need a matching set of the Horseshoe lights on the NJ side. laugh

One thing I just thought of...DUH...this is the Grand Tour speaking. Pennsylvania, being a coastal, lighthouse-bearing state, has to be included. But, really, they have three lights, plus a "recognised faux" one.

Erie Land Light was the 2006 CF Exclusive. Presque Isle came out in 1997. The Presque Breakwater Light, while cool looking, isn't really "big seller" material. And Turtle Rock is...well, it's a boathouse with a tower on it. Lighthouse-ness? Debatable.

I wouldn't be as disappointed if last year's Society pieces weren't from the same region. Some of those old range lights were cool, in that strange way. (Though I'm the one with the soft spot for range lights...) The rear range is even crazier.

I'd be less disappointed if last year's wasn't from the same region and along the same concept. I'll probably buy them, as I did the New Castle Lights this year, because I've been getting into collecting the special edition pieces, and it will be a cool piece.

But...hopefully, next year, there'll be something more exciting. Like the long-asked-for Chops. (Though they might be better sellers in the "regular market?")

Anyone care to share what's going on with the HL website? Hasn't been updated in a while.

Rumors seem to be few and far between. Despite the efforts of Harbour Lights to keep the collective juices flowing with the Legacy and the Musings, they haven't been able to replace the old "slip of the lip" that Bill Younger was famous for.

I admit the product keeps getting better but I still miss the Youngers more active participation.

:rolleyes: Bob

I think we're experiencing the calm before the storm (in a good way). In a few weeks the remaining 2008 lineup will be announced and many posts will be flying with a happy buzz.

In fairness to TonyC, his occasional post over the last year has stirred the pot around here. Does it compare to the Younger years, I don't know, I wasn't a member then.

We did recently hear about the Pottawatomie, & Perkins Island pieces. Maybe we will get a real clue about another one in the very near future.

For me, the anticipated second half releases are a bit exciting. Theres a NJ release in there. Will it be a LE laugh , a GLOW frown , or a LLOM frown . Or maybe something else (HB confused ).

Here's hoping for some news in the very near future. smile

Those we also the day when Bill was at signing events a couple weekends each month, sometimes as many as five over the weekend. Unfortunately those days are past. I think there are some cool pieces yet to come this year. Will be great to see what comes down the pipe. I also think that not all the second half releases will be made public at the same time. Kind of rationing the news to last the whole year.

There have been some bits & pieces dropped along the way in the past 5 months that people have talked about and speculated on. I spent the weekend with Harry and didn't hear any probing questions that people use to ask Bill. I did say to Harry that it's been a long time between LEs for LI, and he said 'well you just got some little lights' with a chuckle.
I don't remember getting any more than a week or two heads up on the Forum or chat in the past unless you were involved researching the piece.

Glad HL is not announcing all the pieces at once. Us Wackos and Loons would be going crazy for some info by October. eek
