ABCD - Will You Take Part?

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

Our friend Gary France from the UK, who we met in Sturgis last summer while he was touring the US, has laid out the following challenge...will you take it?


A Bloggers Centerline Day, or ABCD, will take place on Sunday 1st May 2011.

The plan is to inspire as many bloggers as possible to go outside and take a photograph of themselves on this day, wherever they are in the world. The photo can be creative, arty, contain more than one person, be in any type of location and can contain anything else you like. It must however contain the centerline of a road and at least part of you, the blogger.

There are 5 rules....

Rule 1 - the picture must be taken on 1st May 2011.

Rule 2 - the picture must be of yourself, and you must be a person that publishes a blog. You can include whatever else you like in the picture, including other people if you wish.

Rule 3 - the picture must include the centerline of a road.

Rule 4 – you should publish the picture on your blog on 1st May 2011, along with a few words about the picture and why you chose that location or pose.

Rule 5 - when you have posted the picture on your own blog, put a comment on and include in that comment the address of your own blog post containing your own picture. 

Gary France will then pick his favourite photos and publish these as being the winners. There will be a prize of $100 awarded to the overall single winner, as chosen by Gary.

In order to get this event known as widely as possible, please copy and paste this posting onto your own blog, including the title. Please do that today!

As a reminder to yourself to take the photo and post it, put an entry into your diary for 1st May 2011.

Let’s see if we can get as any people to join in as possible.

Till next time - keep on rollin',
Donna and Stu


  1. Hi Donna, I just thought I'd let you know your link doesn't work above. I managed to find the correct link here:

    and have posted to join too...what a fun idea :)

  2. Thanks, Brooke. Got it fixed!! Dropped the 'l'. LOL!

  3. I think I will! Sounds fun! And I've passed this along!

  4. You all please be careful. Standing on the centerline can be dangerous. Especially in Florida with all of our blue haired ladies, 18 wheelers and drunk drivers.

  5. Thanks for re-posting this on your blog. I hope there are lots of entries! Oh, and take DC's advice and find a quiet road!

  6. Dang, I missed this! I may still go do it tomorrow, though.


We're waiting.....
