Hi everyone,Hi Paddy H, bad day -no not at all, I think you and others who have commented on my message don't get my meaning, it's not the difficulty of the task you set but the implications of a member actually taking pics with the possibility of someone,s children being on them.
You missunderstand I also think it's interesting to see members cars and have followed this thread with interest but the task set was in my opinion inappropriate and yes I am a family man.
I am now disapointed that members see my post as negative .
cheers.

As im am also a father of two children i agree with you on this post and apologise for my miss-understanding of what you meant in the previous post, as parents we are mindful of the precautions,
But those who do not yet have children of their own wouldn’t have considered those dangers entailed or be alert to that type of activity been seen as illegal or questionable

Well to be honest, with how you replied in your first post there was no sign of a joke or anything you just seemed very straight forward and negative.
However that does not mean i don't understand your point, i guess when setting the challenge i had something different in mind unlike how you have. Theres a open forest park close by which always has an ice cream van there, its never busy and the amount of times iv parked up next to it to get my neice an ice cream is uncountable. Also i know where one ice cream van man lives and parks his van on the drive.. another easy picture.

I guess for some it is a hard challenge especially worse for those with children as they se this task differently. I do want to say sorry for offending anybody but please don't think i did it with intention?

I apologise, genuinely. Can we come to an agreement of changing the challenge guys?

Hi Paddy H and Lenny,
Paddy I now see that I should have been a lot more precise with my comment yesterday morning as we all know hindsight is a wonderful thing but non of us are perfect.
I was not looking for an apology fellas but thankyou very much.
I thank you for your understanding and I hope we can we move on from this as I have enjoyed being a member of this forum even though just for a short time .
As far as location I think the choice should be yours Paddy H .
Cheers.

Good enough for me, we'll put that one to bed and have a challenge which is less likely to cause offence to club members.
Is everyone happy with this decision?

Next challenge: a pic of your car (fully visible!) next to a flag, or at least with a flag in the background
