Are you a member of the North American MGB Register? If so, then you might be interested in the new John Thornley Challenge starting this June. Yes, like right now.
The challenge will be a fun MG scavenger hunt with at least 50 different challenges for members to take pictures of with their car in the photo. The challenge will end on October 6, 2021, at 9 pm. After that, the NAMBGR committee will look at all submitted pictures and points to announce First, Second, and Third place winners at the 2021 Annual Meeting.
The rules are pretty simple:
- You must be a member in good standing of the NAMGBR. Not a member? Join now! In addition to being able to join this challenge, you will get a subscription to the bi-monthly issue of The MG Driver and a host of other benefits.
- Your “proof pictures” must include a visible copy of a current issue of The MG Driver magazine.
- All challenges must be completed in an MG! Any make or model is acceptable.
According to club secretary Leeann Looft who is organizing the challenge, “I thought we could all use a little British Car fun after this last year.” And who can disagree with her?
The plan is to create a Facebook page where you can share your pictures and adventures. If you are not on Facebook or choose not to participate that way, there will also be updates on the NAMGBR website. Pictures for the challenges will be able to be submitted on either of two websites or, alternatively, sent directly to Leeann via email, DVD, or flash drive.
Again, the John Thornley Challenge is open to all members of the NAMGBR. Those interested in participating should send their name, membership number, and what type of MG they will be using in an email to Leeann at [email protected].
