      Saw this on a Bimmer site. It was pretty cool, and got really creative.

      Post up a picture of a Mk2 (preferably yours) that meets the challenge criteria. If you post up the pic, choose a new challenge.

      Rules:
      Challenge photo must be taken AFTER the challenge is issued.

      One you complete a challenge, you must post a picture with a new, and original challenge, nothing too outlandish, or obscure.

      While being creative, the new challenge must be generic. This is an international "event", so it needs to be accessible to everyone. Ex: Picture of car in front of monument. NOT picture of car in front of Washington monument.

      Any car may be used for the sake of keeping the game moving. Mk2s are encouraged.

      This is meant to be somewhat fast paced, so quality of photos isn't really important. However, they must be discernible.

      Also, it doesn't matter if you have a super slammed, shaved, show car, or a daily beater, post up those pics. No one is/should be judging your car in this thread, just having fun with the challenges.


      Make it work?

      1st Challenge: Mk2 next to a farm animal.[/QUOTE]

      PS: I've seen similar things done at large G2Gs. A list of photo ops is given, and everyone must turn in an SD card with all the pictures taken on it by a certain time, sort of like a big scavenger hunt. The person who gets all the photo ops the best, first wins.

      Normally the way this works (often done on motorcycle boards) is you must take the picture AFTER the challenge is issued and it must be of your vehicle. (doesn't have to be your mk2, but a car you own or are riding in).

      So if the first person says "your car with a firetruck", you need to go out and take a picture with your car and a firetruck in the picture. Then you take a picture of your car with something else, and post that up as the example for the next challenge!

      Again, the picture must be taken after the challenge is issued, not an old picture from last week or 5 years ago that happens to meet the criteria.

      Nothing illegal and please try to keep it to stuff that anybody can find. Also can't be a specific thing, has to be a general thing. Anybody can find a fire truck, but not Chicago FD truck #45, just a fire truck.

      Here are some examples of things that make good challenges:

      Water towers
      power generation
      creepy old industrial building
      pier (close enough)
      Urban sprawl
      fire tower
      watering holes
      ice cream maker
      observation post/one room school house
      mile markers
      Giant gnomes
      community pools
      wildlife
      Lodge
      museums
      lawn art
      Exotic animals
      River crossing
      Bandstands
      Cabooses
      Graffiti
      cool old diner sign
      Ambulance
      tool booth photo by attendant
      heavy equipment
      moose crossing sign
      topiary
      waterfalls

      In! I am honestly going to go and get in my car right now and find a take a picture with some buffalo!!! After that I will post a new challange tonight after I wander the island looking for something random to snap my car in front of!

      Alright made it back from my fun drive with my girlfriend! First stop was to take a picture with a buffalo to complete challenge #1.



      Then decided to make challenge #2 "Your car with a boat/boats".



      Good luck with challenge #2 I would love to see how far this goes!

      Peacocks have the most ridiculous mating sounds. Someone post up a pic of their car with a boat. Doesn't one of your rich and/or redneck neighbors have a boat in the backyard you can borrow?

      Daffodils are always the first flower out of the ground at springtime, I figured at least another virginian would chime in seeing as how those and cherry blossoms are everywhere now.
