Does the challenge end at midnight in our own time zone or a more specific time?

I'm planning to work on it until the end.

Haha, I just came to this thread to ask the very same question as xyliajames!

Edited to Add:
@xyliajames  I just re-read the 2018 Tournament Overview which answers our question.

Quote
Starting Dates/Closing Dates
At the bottom of rulesets you will notice official starting and closing dates. If the event is a minor event you have three weeks to finish. If the event is a major event, then you have six weeks. Playing your scoring file before the starting date or after the closing date is not allowed. The only time reference you need to remember is your local time/date. You must submit scores in the individual challenge thread before the closing date has come and gone in your local time zone. Scores submitted after the closing date will not be accepted.

@xyliajames @oshizu is right.
Its you own timezone that counts, so you can start as soon as its the start date in your time zone, and you also have to end on the date of your timezone.

Thanks, @oshizu and @LenaLJ. I played as long as I could. It's a shame because I thought I had a strategy worked out pretty well. Can't wait to see what everyone else did. Here're my (sad) totals:

Sim 1: lvl 3 (0)
Sim 2: lvl 10 and lvl 2 (8 )
Sim 3: lvl 4 (0)
Sim 4: lvl 4 (0)
Sim 5: lvl 9 (6)
Sim 6: lvl 8 and lvl 1 (4)
Sim 7: lvl 9 (6)
Sim 8: lvl 8 (4)

Total: 32

I actually really, really liked this one but failed due to time constraints IRL. I may, after it's all over, finish playing this one out to see what could have been.

Congratulations @Nikitachi . Your score was truly phenomenal. Really looking forward to hearing your strategy. I reckon i am going to learn a lot from everyone's strategies in this one. Congrats to everyone who completed this challenge too. It was a long one! I couldn't even begin to complete this challenge as i wasn't around enough to play these last three weeks sadly. Hoping to participate in the whims one though.

Congratulations to all that completed.
I was so stupid to fall asleep instead of pressing reply to add my score. So onto the next one.

Well done to everyone that completed. I started but only got to day two before the micro management became too much to cope with.

Looking forward to hearing everyone's strategies.

Congratulations to Nikitachi and props to everyone else who completed this one.

Like December22, I just could not muster the patience to micromanage eight Sims! I am looking forward to the current challenge, though.
