The first day we were able to transfer four file cabinets (16 drawers) to file boxes. These will be more manageable to work with.
We found some pretty cool images while we were working. It was hard not to stop and look at every single one! It's going to be an amazing collection when they are all digitized. We've posted these photos and more on our Facebook page, Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame.
One folder we opened at random contained this vintage photo of Hall of Famer Rod Hall.
It was pretty cool the share this find from the Dusty Times Archives with the man himself!
Moving in: The first batch of file boxes heading for interior climate controlled storage.
The second load of boxes ready to be unloaded in the climate controlled storage.
We'll be putting the boxes up on risers, and covering them with tarps, to protect them from any type of moisture.
And with that, day one is complete. 16 drawers down, 28 to go! It looks like we'll have around 85 boxes when we're done, plus several boxes of back issues of the magazine.
We are saving this file cabinet and turning it into something fun for the Silent Auction at the 2017 Induction and Awards Ceremony. Stay tuned!
