Hi ghillied. The Status Challenges are a great way for members to earn the next level status rather than maintain the status you already have. It is important to note that if you do not complete the required nights to maintain your current status level, you will only be dropped down one level, so in your case that would be to Gold for 2017. At that time, if you are interested in completing a challenge, let us know. We'd be happy to help make sure you are enrolled and answer any questions you may have.
