It’s time for another installment of our Fayetteville Photo Challenge.
Here’s how to enter: Fill out the form below telling us where in Fayetteville the this week’s photo (above) was taken, and be entered to win a $50 gift card to the Flyer Sponsor of your choice (see a list to the right), plus a free Flyer t-shirt. Be as specific with the location as you can.
We’ll choose the winner at random from the correct answers at around noon on Wednesday, Aug. 7. If there are enough correct answers, second and third place winners (chosen at random) will also receive Flyer t-shirts.
Comments on this post are closed until we choose a winner so that no one gives away the answer. We’ll reveal the location for the above photo when we announce the winners next week.
Last week’s winner
Congrats to the winner of photo challenge #6, Jenni K.
Jenni scored a $50 gift card to Handmade Market and a Fayetteville Flyer t-shirt for correctly identifying last week’s photo of the old Rockwood Club building at 380 W. 24th Street. Mark K. and Scott S. also won Flyer t-shirts.
Last week, we also added a bonus entry for folks who could tell us a bit about the historical significance of the building. The Rockwood Club was a rock-n-roll club and college bar in the 1950s and 60s that hosted shows from legendary performers such as Ronnie Hawkins & the Hawks (Hawkins at one point also owned the venue), Wanda Jackson, Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison, Levon Helm, The Cate Brothers, and others. Also of note, renowned architect Fay Jones worked on the building as a consultant when he was still an architecture student at the University of Arkansas. Here’s an Arkansas Times article with a bit more information about the venue, and here’s an Echoes of the Ozarks piece that might be of interest as well. The venue was also once owned by Dayton Stratton, who went on to road manage The Band, and also operated The Rink here in town.
