THE SOUTH WEST PENINSULAR CHALLENGE 2017

 

The BMW Club South West Section present " The South West Peninsular Challenge 2017 "Apologies to the GS Section for stealing this idea we completed the Silver award this year and thoroughly enjoyed the excuse to ride and discover hidden treasures in areas we thought we knew. Hopefully you will get involved and enjoy the challenge.

The idea is to ride each location identified, take a photo of your bike and submit it. Pictures should show the landmark or evidence of the location.

There are 4 levels of challenge requiring visits to Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, and Somerset:- Bronze any 5 locations Silver any 10 locations Gold any 15 locations Platinum all 20 locations .

The challenge will run from January 1st 2017 to September 30th 2017.

The prize for successful completion of your chosen challenge is an outstanding certificate suitable for framing and hanging on the wall of the smallest room. Photos should be sent to timpattemore31@gmail.com please send as you complete so I am not inundated with pictures.

The best picture each month will be published in the Journal.

368 pictures have been submitted and hopefully all are visible on the main site -run by Peanut or the Flickr site managed by Alex. Thanks to both for their time and effort.
A gentle reminder, when you submit pictures please rename them. In the form of "Your name.Location title.Point number" - thanks
I am hoping to finish all 20 by the end of August so may see some of you out there
Tim

At last it has stopped raining and is actually quite warm today.
So far 16 people have made a start on the Challenge and taken 107 photos - well done for braving the weather.
There are several ride outs organised to take in one or more Challenge points so keep checking the calender of events.
We have several new members signed up - welcome to them - it`s not too late if you wish to take part

Look forward to seeing you on a ride sometime

Tim.

____________________________________________________________

Happy New Year to all and thanks for the overwhelming interest in the Challenge. To date 50 entries and many locations already visited. Due to the number of entrants I have had to limit the photos being published on the web site - if all of you complete I would have to deal with over a 1000 pictures. I am sure you understand, please continue to send you pictures and selected ones will be published on the web site and the best one each month will go in the Journal.
Safe riding.

Tim

 

Although not a race a massive well done must go to Western Section member Robert Bilson who has already completed all twenty points ( Jan 2017 )
