I will post the picture challenge Friday July 1st at 9am CST!

Please read everything that gets posted, there is a slight change for this set of challenges.

Your bike should have a small American flag somewhere in the picture.

1. Sign at a business that says something like “Happy Fourth of July”

2. Fireworks stand.

3. Street lined with American Flags.

4. Bike at a water park.

5. With a red fire truck.

6. With a white ambulance

7. With a blue American muscle car.

8. At a hot dog stand.

9. In front of a place that specializes in pies like a bakers square.

10. In front of a baseball stadium like your local double A team or a pro team.

11. With a tree or fence with a big yellow ribbon for our troops.

12. At night with some kind of firework going off.

Sorry if you don’t live in the States and can’t get these but this weekend is all about us!!

Also the fourth is my B-day so a bonus if you get a pic with a Fourth of July cake.

This is not a tough list so I think the winner will be the person that gets all 12! If anyone disagrees please make your case and I will take it into consideration. I know it’s a little off the official rules but hey it’s America’s weekend and my B-day : )
Any comments or questions, ask and I will answer! Remember, be creative...


same rules as last game apply:

- 12 challenges are presented.
- first to complete 10 of the challenges is deemed the winner.
- something distinctive will be necessary in EACH picture for it to count. [for example, last challenge your left glove needed to be in each picture. this eliminates people from using old pictures that they might.]
- the winner of the challenge will receive a decal saying:



600rr.net
picture challenge V winner
user name​



- winner of the challenge also becomes MOD for next challenge, choosing whatever 12 challenges they want. [rules for each challenge will be the same as in the [URL="http://www.600rr.net/vb/showthread.php?t=237933#"]motorcycle[/URL] picture game].



- the MOD for each round is not allowed to play the round they're modding for. [for obvious reasons].



- the MOD for each round has final say whether a pic counts or not.



- try to keep pics in a single post [if possible]. keeps the thread clean.




If you want to play, just start posting your pics in this thread! Easy!
Game starts Friday and ends Sunday night!

There are some Canadians around here that would beg to differ. Today is Canada Day. I would say that Canadian Riders should be allowed to substitute a Canadian flag for each American icon in the challenges.

Pay Homage to your northern neighbors also man.

On June 20, 1868, Governor General the Viscount Monck issued a royal proclamation asking for Canadians to celebrate the anniversary of the confederation.[13] However, the holiday was not established statutorily until 1879, when it was designated as Dominion Day, in reference to the designation of the country as a Dominion in the British North America Act. The holiday was initially not dominant in the national calendar; up to the early 20th century, Canadians thought themselves to be primarily British, being thus less interested in celebrating distinctly Canadian forms of patriotism. No official celebrations were therefore held until 1917—the golden anniversary of Confederation—and then none again for a further decade.[14]

In 1946, Philéas Côté, a Quebec member of the House of Commons, introduced a private member's bill to rename Dominion Day as Canada Day.[15] His bill was passed quickly by the House of Commons but was stalled by the Senate, which returned the bill to the Commons with the recommendation that the holiday be renamed The National Holiday of Canada, an amendment that effectively killed the bill.[16]





Canada Day fireworks in Barrie, Ontario
Beginning in 1958, the Canadian government began to orchestrate Dominion Day celebrations, usually consisting of Trooping the Colour ceremonies on Parliament Hill in the afternoon and evening, followed by a mass band concert and fireworks display. Canada's centennial in 1967 is often seen as an important milestone in the history of Canadian patriotism, and in Canada's maturing as a distinct, independent country, after which Dominion Day became more popular with average Canadians. Into the late 1960s, nationally televised, multi-cultural concerts held in Ottawa were added, and the fête became known as Festival Canada; after 1980 the Canadian government began to promote the celebrating of Dominion Day beyond the national capital, giving grants and aid to cities across the country to help fund local activities.

With only twelve Members of Parliament present, eight less than a quorum,[17] the private member's bill that proposed to change the name to Canada Day was passed in the House of Commons in five minutes, without debate.[18] With the granting of Royal Assent, the name was officially changed to Canada Day on October 27, 1982, a move largely inspired by the adoption of the Canada Act, earlier in the year. Although the proposal caused some controversy,[18] many Canadians had already been informally referring to the holiday as Canada Day for a number of years before the official name change occurred.[n 3] Columnist Andrew Cohen called Canada Day a term of "crushing banality" and criticized the change from Dominion Day as being "a renunciation of the past [and] a misreading of history, laden with political correctness and historical ignorance".[23] For Cohen, the change is an example of systemic denial of Canadian history by the Canadian government.[24]

As the anniversary of Confederation, Dominion Day, and later Canada Day, was the date set for a number of important events, such as the first national radio network hookup by the Canadian National Railway (1927), the inauguration of the CBC's cross-country television broadcast (1958), the flooding of the Saint Lawrence Seaway (1958), the first colour television transmission in Canada (1966), the inauguration of the Order of Canada (1967), and the establishment of "O Canada" as the country's national anthem (1980). Other events fell on the same day coincidentally, such as the first day of the Battle of the Somme in 1916—shortly after which Newfoundland recognized July 1 as Memorial Day to commemorate the Newfoundland Regiment's heavy losses during the battle[25][26]—and the enactment of the Chinese Immigration Act in 1923—leading Chinese-Canadians to refer to July 1 as Humiliation Day and boycott Dominion Day celebrations until the act was repealed in 1947
