At the September monthly meeting club member Jim Goldmeyer shared with us photos that he used to win honorable mention in last year's Thornley Challenge. The Thornley Challenge is a photo scavenger hunt hosted by the NAMGBR where participants are given a long list of locations, sites or scenes that they are to take a photo with their car, The NAMGBR's The Driver magazine and themselves in the frame along witht the assigned subject. Jim did a great job, with a bit of humor, sharing with us how he successfully captured the photos. He traveled across the southern U.S. visiting many unique sites and locations. In some cases he had to have a detailed plan to get the photo. In other cases, it was totally seredipitous, being in the right place at the right time. And yes, he received special dispensation to drive his Mini Cooper. I suspect this created a bit of consernation on the part of the NAMGBR team.
We love hearing from club members. If you have a story to share send us an email or catch Bob Chalker at one of our future events.
