I'm tired of going back and forth from doctor appointment to doctor appointment to hospital and back again and want to do something fun for once, so I took this idea from the other MINI group that has a big role in my life.

2012 THMMC Challenge!!



The THMMC Challenge is designed to get the members of THMMC out there motoring. The idea is part photo scavenger hunt, part funrun.

Members are encouraged to plan group outings themselves to collect all the photos. Most of these can be done at lots of different locations throughout the state and at any time of the year, BUT they are all things that the member cannot simply create in their garage. The dogwoods need a specific time frame, but if you miss it, you can substitute another.

Rules


Motor to the designated spot on the 2012 Photo Spot list below.
Take a picture of your car with the landmark in the same frame.
All photos must have been taken this year.
It must be blatantly obvious that you were indeed at the landmark.
All photos must be submitted before December 31.
Create one post in this thread to post your pictures.
When you have a new picture, simply edit that one post and add that photo.




Designated Photo spots:

You car photographed.............

1. With a Street Trolley.

2. With a British Red Telephone box.

3. With a German Flag.

4. With a statue of a bull or cow.

5. With a Fu Dog.

6. With a car that has an MSRP >$100,000.

7. With a car smaller than an R53 Mini.

8. With some graffiti.

9. With a statue of a a public service employee (other than a soldier).

10. With Dogwoods.

11. With a giant inflatable animal / monster.

12. At a Festival.

13. With a statue of a soldier.

14. Next to a building that is >100 years old.

15. Next to the world's largest _________________ (member's choice).

You can take the pictures in any city/state/country as long as you are motoring in your own personal or temporary personal (rental) MINI. Only pictures taken this year will count, so if you took the greatest picture with your MINI at one of these locations last year, it will NOT count, but if the picture was taken between January 1 to now it WILL count.

Here's my pictures of Moira photographed....



1. With a Street Trolley.

2. With a British Red Telephone box.
9447 9448
Moira & Jeff Cole's TurboMINI (and random blue car) in Durham after the Hurricanes vs. Devils game in Durham. They're both still a little dirty from all of the fun of the Bullfrog Run earlier that day.


3. With a German Flag.

4. With a statue of a bull or cow.

5. With a Fu Dog.

6. With a car that has an MSRP >$100,000.

7. With a car smaller than an R53 Mini.
9309 9310 9311
a 2009 Xebra three-wheel 72 volt electric "Zap Truck" with manual dump bed from China (my husband Ben is 6' tall, if that gives you a sense of how wee this thing is) You can see the corner of the '03 green MCS they had on the lot too, but I couldn't get all 3 in the picture...


8. With some graffiti.
9375 9376
Grafitti's a rare sight in Asheville, so as soon as I saw this on the way home this morning, I pulled over before it was cleaned up...as the year progresses and I'm travelling, hopefully I'll see much more colorful examples and can replace the picture.


9. With a statue of a a public service employee (other than a soldier).

10. With Dogwoods.
9379 9378 9377 9707
On the Parkway between MP 389-390 - the bracts aren't open all the way yet, but there wasn't a car on the road, so I took advantage of the peacefulness to get the picture.


11. With a giant inflatable animal / monster.
9710
Ok, so I didn't realize it had to be inflatable - sorry Otters! We have too many kids with bb guns in Asheville; nothing stays inflated for more than 48 hours here, especially at Christmas. On the BRPT Otter group found this gentle giant and his female companion on our last twisty run of the day, so we decided to make friends and all have our pictures taken with them. From left to right it's TurboMINI, YardofBeef, Colleen & Bryan's car (can't remember the name - sorry!), CaryCooper, and Moira. I'll keep looking for an inflatable one, though...


12. At a Festival.

13. With a statue of a soldier.

14. Next to a building that is >100 years old.
9708 9709
On the way back from Bullfrog, we stopped in Clyde, NC and got Moira's picture taken in front of the Shook House, which was built between 1810-1820.

Like others, working off memory while out and about I forgot it specifies an inflatable. Gonna go ahead and post the MINI WUF with a giant hummingbird just because it is a fun pic imo. Will have to keep my eyes open for an inflatable now.
