Do you know how many miles you have driven to 20-30 events?
What is a fun memory you have?
When carpooling, what was the mode of transportation? Car, van, bus, RV, plane, train, ….?
Yesterday, I was at a meeting and we were talking about all the upcoming 20-30 events happening. And how much fun it is to go and support each other clubs’ events. Either by attending, volunteering, or going to meetings to promote our own club events.
The other bonus of going, is the road trip to get there. It is a great bonding experience to carpool with your own club members. I was asked how many miles I must have put on my car just attending 20-30 events. That stumped me, because other than to answer “A LOT,” I did not know. It did make me remember some great memories connected to those road trips.
(Pictured) This might not be my car, but it was the first part of a trip to the 2012 International Convention in Costa Rica. We decided to head out of Sacramento to San Francisco airport in style. Which was also my first Convention outside the United States.

Last year I found a weekly genealogy challenge with different topics, and realized some of the themes can be easily applied to our history.
Have you come across a photo or story related to Active 20-30 and wanted to know more?
There has been quite a few that I have found, and others that have been shared, that had me going down rabbit holes. Some of them have been from people finding 20-30 dedicated plaques at parks, a photo of a horse at an indoor meeting promoting an event, or names of famous people.
I came across a photo of an 20-30 club putting on a Donkey Basketball benefit game. I’ll have to find that photo later. For now, here is a newspaper one from the Arizona Republic (6 Apr 1937), “Phoenix 20-30 Club decided to stage a series of donkey softball and polo games”.
